I recently had the joy of editing an e-book for another writer. Yes, I said joy. I’m a former English teacher, and I had fun “bleeding” virtually on the digital pages of the e-book. I loved analyzing the grammar and spelling, and I also loved commenting in the margins with my thoughts.
If you don’t love grammar as much as I do, but you do want to have better writing, check out Grammarly. It’s a clever program that checks for grammar, spelling, and style issues that often go ignored.
Use Grammarly for proofreading because every time you forget a grammar rule, a comma gets abused. Stop comma abuse. It’s an epidemic.
When I first got to know Paula, we were both expecting new babies–her second and my third. We were prepping our kiddos to be big siblings and we were writing about it, and we had fun comparing notes on cloth diapers and discussing our favorite big sibling books.
And now she has taken all that she learned during that season of life and put it in book form. I love her book because I could relate to it. It’s real, honest, and authentic. This is one of my favorite quotes:
You might remember that I’m from a big family. Since I was 16 when my youngest brother was born, I got to see how my parents handled new babies and new pregnancies. I was able to absorb so much by watching my mom be a mother to little ones when I was a teenager. Few women get to see this. Consequently, when we find out we have another bun in the oven (joy!) we worry about our other children and how they will handle it. I know because nearly every pregnant mama I meet expresses concern about helping her first child adjust.
When I go to MOPS and we sit around our tables talking about mom issues and life issues, these are the things we discuss: How can do it when I can barely keep up with one? I’m not a good enough mother to handle another baby. Should I get big sibling a present when the baby is born?
Paula’s book answers these questions and so many more. She gives incredibly practical advice about regression and other issues that your child may face as they become a big sibling.
If you’re expecting another baby or you know someone who is, then you would love When Baby Becomes Big Sibling. With a price tag of $3.99, you can afford to give a copy to a pregnant friend right along with a box of diapers.
Paula Rollo has generously offered to giveaway one free copy of When Baby Becomes Big Sibling to one of my readers. Sign up below!
And as for Grammarly, you should know that I submitted this blog post to the program and found several cases of comma abuse in my own writing. Nice!
