Alex McAuley's blog The Life That Max Built is a new and very welcome addition to the scene - beautifully written, candid, funny ... she aims to reassure newer families that life will be good, without shirking the bits that will hard, and strikes just the right note. Max is 22, and one of four boys, so Alex and Max have a lot of well-considered experience to share.
(In addition to regular blog posts, the as-yet undeveloped pages 'Dancing to the Max' and 'Pottery to the Max' hold promise of other delights. If you can't wait, you can read a little more about Max here.)
Just three posts in, this one is going on the 'Blogs we read' list (scroll down the column on the right of this page) and into the blog reader so that no post is missed. It deserves to be shared around.
