This week, I took a break from my usually scheduled reading of The Fountainhead (which is taking me forever by the way). I borrowed a couple of books from a friend and just devoured them! Now, you may be surprised to hear I was inspired by this author (or not depending on what you think of me ) but these books were a great reprieve from the slow moving book I had been reading.
The first was Belly Laughs by Jenny McCarthy, and I’m not quite sure why I didn’t read this sooner after having Val. With her humor and crass way of telling it like it is, I may have felt a little bit better having a little one in the house. All the crazy stuff was totally normal and maybe I could have laughed a little more. It’s a quick read. Even with a toddler, I finished it in a day.
The second book was also by Jenny McCarthy, but a little bit deeper than the first one. It’s called Louder Than Words – A Mother’s Journey in Healing Autism. I know some people think that Jenny isn’t qualified to talk about autism and how to heal or what might cause it. I am a firm believer in a mother’s instinct, in healing with diet, and not so much of a believer of the medical field sometimes. She doesn’t know or claim to know exactly what caused her son’s autism, but she does know what actions she took to bring him out of his window and she’s sharing that information. I am not a mother of a child with autism, but I would recommend this book to one so they would start asking questions.
