about

In an age where our kids are helicopter parented and bubble wrapped, this mother of four isn't looking forward to her four talented, artistic children leaving the family home. Bubble after protective bubble bursts as her troupe queues up and flies off to distant places. Candace Allan attempts to iparent from afar through sometimes turbulent, sometimes funny, and always curious new times. Text Me, Love Mom: Two Girls, Two Boys, One Empty Nest is a heartfelt ode to learning how to let go when all you want is to hang on tight."Witty and candid, wise with an optimistic lean - Candace Allan's memoir is back-up for anyone whose fledglings are finding inventive ways to leave the nest. A pleasure to read."- Fred Stenson, humorist for Alberta Views Magazine and author of Who By Fire

Reviews

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A must read for every Mom I read this book twice. I keep telling my sisters I am going to loan it to them but I can't let go of it yet in case I need to re -read it. Candace has verbalized all of the emotions I have gone through and am still feeling but she does it with humor. I laughed out loud throughout the whole book, especially when her daughter Zoe moves away to go to school and Candace starts to panic that she hasn't taught her everything she needs to know like "make gravy". Thank you for not being preachy or condensending, just giving a real picture of what it's like for us moms to go through the process of "letting go". Hmmm I may give it to my son for Christmas! I am so curious as to where the four kids are now, please write a sequel.
