Birth of a New Brain by Dyane Harwood (Mommy and Me Book Club)


Hi everyone! I hope you’re doing well.

Yes, my blog is still on hiatus, but I had to share the awesome blogger Stay-in-Bed Mom’s thoughtful, wonderful post about “Birth of a New Brain.”

I’m honored “Birth of a New Brain” made the cut for her blog’s “Worth Staying Up Late” to Read Category – hurrah! (Stay-in-Bed Mom knows her check is in the mail….I’m just kidding; really, I am!)

I loved reading the “Quotable Quotes” she selected from my book— I totally forgot I had written most of them, LOL!.

Be sure to check out Stay-in-Bed Mom’s “Mommy and Me” Book Club to find out what book she suggests (the “me book”) for your children that has a theme connected with”Birth of a New Brain. “

This extraordinary mom is also on Instagram & Facebook.

Reading this beautifully written, educational post was the best part of my day – thanks again, Stay-in-Bed Mom! And to all of you, lots of love and take care.
