A Book Review/Plus a question I wish another Mom would answer

It’s almost Christmas, but there is no joy in the house of terminally ill Jack and his family. With only a short time left to live, he spends his last days preparing to say goodbye to his devoted wife, Lizzie, and their three children. Then, unthinkably, tragedy strikes again: Lizzie is killed in a car accident. With no one able to care for them, the children are separated from each other and sent to live with family members around the country.
Just when all seems lost, Jack begins to recover in a miraculous turn of events. He rises from what should have been his deathbed, determined to bring his fractured family back together. Struggling to rebuild their lives after Lizzie’s death, he reunites everyone at Lizzie’s childhood home on the oceanfront in South Carolina. And there, over one unforgettable summer, Jack will begin to learn to love again, and he and his children will learn how to become a family once more


WOW I couldn't put it down!!! This would be a great movie! David Baldacci makes this book such a joy to read.  You really can feel what Jack is going through with his kids.  Everyone should read this book!! This could happen to any one's family and then what would you do??? A++++

OK, My question I wish other Mom's would comment. But since I have NO comments I doubt anyone will.

Jamie is going through this stage(i hope its a stage) were everything is 'NO" and gets MAD easily. But if I ignore her she gets over it faster than if i try to comfort her.  Also, last night I had like a melt down because she didn't want to cuddle with me :( please someone tell me what is also a stage!! I am trying to teach her the work YES!!! But she says NO a lot more!! HELP!!!

Santa Claus

What a year makes.  Last night we took them to see Santa at Town Center mall. Jamie was so excited to see him dancing, smiling, and clapping in line. She started walking up when it was our turn and the closer she got the faster she started crying.  This was the best picture of her not with her hands in her mouth.  Poor baby!! I think it has something to do with the hat. I am not sure because when we meet Buzz Lightyear, Stich, Lilo and Eeyore she had NO issues with them?  
Then this morning I showed her the picture and she kisses Santa and I ask her who is the baby crying and she looks at me like ummm, me mom duuuuu. Then she kisses SANTA again!!!!
