I haven't read Kelly Corrigan's bestselling memoir The Middle Place, but I know several people who loved it. In this video she made to promote her new book, Lift (see the long version; it's totally worth the click), Kelly talks briefly about the vulnerability of raising two daughters.
And yes, now I have a mighty crush on her open and intimate fierceness as a mom.
