Summary
You walk out of the maternity ward with your new baby, looking back over your shoulder, waiting for someone to stop you and tell you you're not qualified to do this. But they don't. They just wave you on your merry way and that's it. It's up to you now. Suddenly you're a mum. Suddenly you're crying at sad news stories, you're picturing all the horrible things that could happen to your baby when you walk down the street, you're plotting your partner's death over and over again. You're wondering why no one told you it would be this hard. Something's changed in you but you're trying to figure out what it is and if anyone else feels the same. This book is NOT a parenting manual. You don't need anyone else telling you what to do with your child. What you need is someone who'll explain what the actual fallopian is happening to you. What exactly IS motherhood? So here it is: the complete, honest, uncomfortable and glorious story of motherhood. From the science fiction weirdness of pregnancy, to the sleep torture inflicted by babies, to the crapshow that is negotiating with your megalomaniacal toddler - and all the magic that makes it worth it. These are the things no one told you about motherhood. The joyous, the maddening and the hilarious
Summary
The parenting book that every new parent will wish they had. The reality, warts and all, will be laid out in Lauren Dubois's trademark hilarious style. She will tackle the realities of pregnancy, having a newborn, a baby and a toddler by breaking each stage down into bite-size chunks for the tired parent teetering on the brink. This is not a practical parenting handbook. It is a funny book that provides comfort and solace to parents through making light of the hard yards involved in looking after little people with big needs.
