A Book Meme

Connie at Smockity Frocks has tagged me for a Book Meme! This is how it goes:

Pick up the nearest book (of at least 123 pages). Open the book to page 123. Find the fifth sentence. Post the next three sentences. Tag five people.

Okay, so the nearest book I have is one I just wrote a review for which you can read here. It is titled Oh, Baby! Seven ways a Baby Will Change Your Life The First Year, by Bettie B. Youngs, Susan M. Heim and Jennifer L. Youngs.

This was from the chapter titled "Making a Living and Raising a Child". Lawrence is a stay at home Dad.

"The more peaceful environment at home was more conducive to writing- especially during her (daughter) morning and afternoon nap times. And when Noell got older, Lawrence hired a sitter for two hours each day so he could use that time to return phone calls and write. Lawrence also found that his experiences with his daughter fueled him with ideas for writing, and so he found himself producing more creative work."
It was a neat book, even after my third child I found myself saying ahh haa at certain points because I've been there too and didn't realize other people experienced the same thing!!
Okay, for my tags I'm going with:
Happy Reading!

I hope everyone is feeling better. I would have thought Sophie's surgery would have saved her from some sickness!
