Out of desperation, I got Wendy ready, and she and I headed out in the pouring rain to the library. I took a list of your suggestions with me, in the hopes of finding some recommended books.
I struck out.
Well, almost. I did find several books by Karen Kingsbury, so I'm giving those a try. But that was it - all your other suggestions of authors & titles, and my library didn't have any of them. I was also looking for potty-training guides. They had one. I checked it out.
There are times when I fantasize about moving back to Missouri. Today is one of those days.
