I recently came across an intriguing item on the new book shelf here at the library. The title alone is enough to get your attention, could you really pass up a book that asks How Do You Tuck In a Superhero?
Rachel Balducci’s 2010 book about the “delightful mysteries of raising boys” covers a wide range of meaningful events that, as the mother of boys myself, I definitely recognize. She talks about everything from the reaction to warehouse clubs ( “. . . my son was almost moved to tears”), the variety of items found in boys’ pockets (in a section titled “Objects of Affection”), brotherly love and the “Essentials of a Boy’s Life” (where she states that Legos are “The only toy you’ll ever need”).
Time and again she comes to the point that with boys “what you see is what you get” and that it’s a good thing because in the next thought you wonder how can they grow up so fast? Enjoy them while they are young, present and as wonderful as only they can be and, while you’re at it, enjoy this delightful book that helps you keep it all in perspective!
