Peanut Butter and Naan
Peanut Butter and Naan: Stories of an American Mom in the Far East | Jennifer Hillman-Magnuson
1 post
Fly-by-the-seat-of-her-pants mom Jennifer Magnuson knew her spoiled suburban brood needed a wake-up callshe just couldn't find the time to fit one in. But when her husband was offered a position in India, she saw it for what it was: the perfect opportunity for her family to unplug from their over-scheduled and pampered lives in Nashville and gain some much-needed perspective. What she didn't realize was how much their time in India would transform her as well.A combination of Eat, Pray, Love and Modern Family, with a dash of Chelsea Handler thrown in for good measure, Peanut Butter and Naan is Magnuson's hilarious look at the chaos of parenting against a backdrop of malaria, extreme poverty, and no conveniences of any kindand her story of rediscovering herself and revitalizing her connection with those she loves the most. In India, after years of parenting under a cloud of anxiety, Magnuson found a renewed sense of adventure and fearlessness (a discovery that was totally worth the many months of hiding anti-malarial medication in her kids' morning oatmeal), and started to become the mother she'd always hoped to be. Hers is a story about motherhood that will not only make you laugh and nod with recognitionit will inspire you to fall in love with your own family all over again.

I snapped this up as soon as I saw it: Peanut Butter and Naan by Jennifer Hillman-Magnuson. A wife and husband take their 5 kids traveling. Can't wait to tuck in as my wife and I plan our next international adventures with our son and daughter. #travelbook #indieauthor #oregonauthor #travelauthor #Bookfair
