I work with an incredibly talented girl named Ashley. The other day I noticed a book on her desk that caught my eye, Sugar Milk: What One Dad Drinks When He Can't Afford Vodka. I loved the cover, so I asked her about it. It turns out that her husband, Ron, wrote the book, and it was just published. The book is his story:
He was leading a successful life. But after an unexpected economic downturn, Ron suddenly began to question everything he knew about success and fatherhood. Ron shares how he remarried, inherited two stepdaughters, and then lost his job, subsequently becoming a stay at home dad. Ron provides a glimpse into how he took lemons and created not only lemonade, but a lifetime of memories with his family. He shares the compelling story of how, without a parenting manual in sight, he learned to fumble his way through fatherhood with modesty, courage, and a whole lot of humor.
The book can be purchased on Amazon.com for only $11.53 (paperback). I ordered the book (which, by the way, has fantastic reviews!), and I cannot wait to read it. Check it out:
