Bay and Her Boys
Unexpected Lessons I Learned as a (Single) Mom
More than two decades ago, Bay Buchanan was thrown into the world of single parenting. When her husband walked out, she had a four-year-old, a two-year-old, and was pregnant with a third child—all boys. Bay never expected she would end up as a single mom. But she quickly realized she needed to somehow overcome the hurt and confusion of divorce and focus on giving her all to her children.
Millions know Bay Buchanan as a top political analyst and strategist. Although she has debated national leaders, her toughest negotiations took place with her toddlers. In Bay and Her Boys, Bay offers moms her hard-won wisdom from raising three spirited kids (who never missed an opportunity to get into trouble).
She candidly shares the joys and difficulties she experienced—lessons learned, mistakes made, and rules that worked for her boys, who are now successful adults. From dealing with discipline to juggling work and home, the challenges of parenting can be conquered. And you can do it right—whether you stay at home or work full time; even if you’re on your own. Bay’s rules show you how.
Let’s face it: some days it’s all you can do to get cereal on the dinner table. But you don’t have to be Supermom to be a good mom. Moving, inspiring, and often funny, Bay and Her Boys is both a powerful reflection on the importance of dedicated parents in a child’s life and a wholly practical guide to doing what works.
No matter what your situation, this book will show you how to take charge of your life, create a close family bond, and make the best job you’ll ever have a little easier
