Depending on how you feel about gaining weight, even for pregnancy, this has the potential to break you all over again.

Reading opens the door to so many things, and can be the bridge adults need to talk about "touchy" topics with children.
Life isn't always rainbows and butterflies. Things don't go our way, from a family member getting sick to a spouse losing their job. Sometimes the issue isn't as extreme as those, maybe it's just tension in a friendship or staying motivated while you're down.
