Hannah Greenberg's collection of essays Oblivious to the Obvious: Wishfully Mindful Parenting invites all grownups to celebrate, to contemplate, and to gyrate in tempo to the stresses and joys of raising young ones. From mountains of laundry to lizards left roaming among dirty dishes, Oblivious to the Obvious sets up house in the hallowed hindmost region of sleep deprived adults’ minds. Junk mail, endlessly chiming computers and incorrigible kittens are only a sample of the denizens that populate this book.
"Hannah Greenberg has a gift for finding those parenting moments, big and small, that lead us to reflect, to reconsider, and to smile. With a great deal of heart, and plenty of humor, she writes about her family, and in doing so, leads us to embrace the best in ourselves and to appreciate the best in our own children." - Jeffrey Zaslow, coauthor, The Last Lecture
