In Letters For My Daughters "According To Carmen" blogger and self proclaimed "Momtrepreneur" Carmen Londono tries to leave behind something of a pep talk for her four current daughters. Cleverly disguised as a recipe book, Londono tackles the hard details of the everyday nitty gritty; from shopping for toothpaste to filling out her daughters' wardrobes with a little fashion sense. Coming from the mouth of well worldly experienced woman who's been down that road and lived through bankruptcy and divorce, and is here to tell the tale, these words aim to be the grain and the salt of her childrens' wisdom. Any mother would be well advised to read this with her own daughters. Her natural writing style will carry you across the pages as you think and rethink whatever you may about the author, the wording, or the philosophy implied by it, but one needs only remind themselves that this is a personal message from a mother to her daughters that has been turned into a public project. The idea that "This could happen to anyone," is infectious and it shouldn't be anyone's bible (as even the author advises her audience), but it wouldn't hurt to realize something one could take away from it all. Wildly blunt and as honest as can be, one shouldn't regret taking a detour from their reading list and giving this voyeuristic new author a chance. It is and isn't what you expect. It's recipes and a book; letters and cooking tips; guidelines and advice. Truly a manifestation of what all mothers encompass. Duality. That being said, it can't hurt to take a sneak peek at conversations all parents should be having with their kids. And maybe making it public is the best way to stay accountable.
