 This book is written from a child’s perspective of how his life would drastically improve if all of his needs were met, without ever having to wait. It takes you through his journey on how his mother turns into an octopus and is able to conduct her daily tasks while keeping her children happy, all at once! Multitasking at its best! 

This book would appeal to children ages 3-8 years old as well as parents, teachers and childcare providers. This book is original because it is easy to read, entertaining to listen to and beautiful to look at. This simple story will teach children a valuable lesson, the lesson of patience.

My stories celebrate family diversity, single parenthood as well as presenting the struggles children and parents deal with on a day to day basis. My goal is to provide children with literature that they will learn from, grow with and relate to.

Here is a video (taken by my 9 year old daughter) of us telling our story. Please take a moment to view it on youtube and see how our journey began. After I reviewed it, I noticed the lighting is a bit dark, it is apparent that I talk way too much with my hands and I clearly needed my hair cut. But it is us, true to form. No editing, no lighting, no makeup, just two average mothers who created a simple, beautiful story together.
