Field Notes From a Semi-Domesticated Life. Category: Biography & Memoir Humor Parenting.

Безопасный режим: выкл. Some people need to run away to find themselves. Some need to come home. Planting Dandelions is what Pittman describes as a natural history of an American family, a captivating set of field notes on the living habits of a small group of humans embedded deep in the heart of suburban America. This perspective isn’t surprising given her provenance.

Introducing a writer with a keen eye, a wicked tongue, and an appealing take on family. In the family of Jen Lancaster and Elizabeth Gilbert, Kyran Pittman is the laid-back middle sister: warm and witty and confiding, with an addictively smart and genuine voice-but married with three kids and living in the heartland. Relatable and real, she writes about family in a way that highlights all its humor, while at the same time honoring its depth. A regular contributor to Good Housekeeping, Pittman is well loved because she is funny and honest and self-deprecating, because her own household is in chaos ("semi-domesticated"), and because she inspires readers in their own domestic lives. In these eighteen linked, chronological essays, Pittman covers the first twelve years of becoming a family, writing candidly and hilariously about things like learning to maintain a marriage over time; dealing with the challenges of sex after childbirth; saying good-bye to her younger self and embracing the still attractive, forty-year-old version; and trying to "recession- proof" her family (i.e., downsize to avoid foreclosure). From a fresh new talent, celebrating the joys and trials of a new generation of parents, Planting Dandelions is an entertaining tribute to choosing the white-picket fence over the other options available, even if you don't manage to live up to its ideals every day.
Comments to eBook Planting Dandelions: Field Notes From a Semi-Domesticated Life
Nnulam
This is a wonderful book. There are two main reasons. Well, maybe three. First of all, it is by a gifted writer, who can make her readers laugh out loud and cry immediately afterwards. Second, this is a courageous memoir about a woman who just wasn't "cut out" to be a mother, but then discovered just how thrilling being a Mother can be. Third, Kyran Pittman has the courage to admit things about herself that all of us can relate to, but few of us would share. This is an honest book about a real person, who came to marriage and motherhood full of flaws, incongruities, and fear. And she triumphed. If this book doesn't become a best seller,I will lose a lot of bets.

Kyran Pittman has a writing style that I love. You can see how her mind works with the elegant flow of her prose. I appreciate Kyran's honesty, she doesn't shy away from the decisions she's made that have built her life. I found the book funny and thought-provoking.

I've followed Kyran as a blogger for some time, but I was astounded at how impactful her book was. A serious and vulnerable memoir of motherhood and marriage, I recognized my own experience in this book and loved her insightful take on suburban life.

I'm happy to say that I recently met Kyran Pittman and I've just finished reading "Planting Dandelions." More than a book sprung from a "mommy blog," Pittman's memoir is a collection of deeply personal observations about life as a mother, as a child who endured heartbreak inflicted by her parents' choices, as a wife, and as a woman struggling to maintain her identity in spite of all her other roles. It is BRILLIANTLY crafted. Pittman inherited her famous father's ear for stringing together words with a poet's lilt, but she adds a fearless ability to cut to the heart of topics we all think about - but rarely discuss. This book is for everyone: both genders, single or in a relationship, those with children and without.

Fun book. I'm a hippy at heart and loved her spirit. Great read from a parents perspective and I'm not a parent. One of those books I was sad when it was over.

My book club read this book and most of our group liked it. It was entertaining, light reading. Honestly? I didn't. The once-hippie mom author described her experiences rearing her children, breast-feeding and so on. I have five children of my own, and if I ever sit down to write my experiences in book form, it will be much funnier than "Planting Dandelions." In fairness, however, I must say that I'm not into memoirs unless it really has some meat to it. It was a quick read if you have nothing better. Just saying.

Very enjoyable and funny! The author does a wonderful job of weaving in the more serious topics too. It is the story of her life. Everyone's life is different but she does a great job of bringing out the things that all of us can relate to. You will love this book!
Wonderful books. Real and inspiring! Pittman is an eloquent, luminous writer who turns her keen eye to parenthood and family life.
