My mom bought this book for Lyla. When I first read it, I thought it was borderline creepy yet sad as well. I decided to read it to Lyla before bed tonight.
Sappy love story + tiredness + burning eyes + the fact that I'm getting old and my daughter is growing up so fast = niagara falls.
I started sobbing while trying to finish the book and Lyla was just looking at me like, huh?
So if you're looking for a nice gift to give a new mom or just a book for some little munchkin you love, I highly recommend it. And the whole stalking your kid while they are grown up with a ladder on your car is okay after all.
