What Are You Favorite Family/Parenting Books?

Hello all,

My baby #3 is on the way. Soon I will have a newborn, a 1 year old and a 2 year old. I wanna get this parenting thing down a bit better.
:?: Can any of you other moms and dads out there please recommend parenting books that you feel were really helpful and encouraging for you? (Anything from taking care of yourself while taking care of kids, to homeschooling, to discipline, to being a stay at home mom, to maintaining a good relationship with your husband….anything and everything that was really helpful for you.)

Thanks so much!

Being a single mother, I spend a lot of time thinking about step parenting. If/When I get remarried, my new husband will instantly be a step-father. This is the biggest thing I look for when I am dating. "Father Potential". There is a country song by Brad Paisly Called "Didn’t have to be".

When a single mom goes out on a date with somebody new
It always winds up feeling more like a job interview
My momma used to wonder if she’d ever meet someone
Who wouldn’t find out about me and then turn around and run

I met the man I call my dad when I was five years old
He took my mom out to a movie and for once I got to go
A few months later I remember lying there in bed
I overheard him pop the question and prayed that she’d say yes

And then all of a sudden
Oh, it seemed so strange to me
How we went from something’s missing
To a family
Lookin’ back all I can say
About all the things he did for me
Is I hope I’m at least half the dad
That he didn’t have to be

You know he didn’t have to be

Its very fairy tale in the song, in walks prince charming and they live happily every after. In real life though, many children who enter a stepparenting blending are not happy about it, Or at least have hurdles that will need to be overcome. I havent seen a thread on stepparenting, if I missed it, I apoligize. Patience seems to be key, like parenting any child. Loving kindness and tender mercies, and lots of patience.
