“Let her draw horses and be interested in Barbies for much too long…”

Tina Fey's "A Mother’s Prayer for Her Daughter" // thepapermama.com

A Mother’s Prayer for Her Daughter, by Tina Fey.

I know I’m behind on the times with this…. but I still haven’t read ‘Bossypants’ by, Tina Fey. It’s officially #3 on my “to-read” list over at Goodreads. She’s one of my favorite people, and I just know I’ll love this book. I ran across this the other day and it made me tear up. What parent hasn’t thought all of these things.

– Lord, please give me strength… cause my threenager is giving me a vision into the future. Youdammit, I’m gonna need help. –

Have you read it?

    After a particularly evenly evening with my toddler, this was a nice read. I have not read this book yet, but now maybe I will have to.

    Thank you for sharing!

    I want to read this book, but I love this prayer and I think it applies to both genders.

    I read it last summer. You'll love it! My teenage daughter did too. I've had that "prayer" pinned for awhile now. So good!

    Tina Fey's book is great, and so is Mindy Kaling's. I love reading funny girl lit.
