Sending out an S.O.S.

There’s nothing quite like those halcyon days with the new baby; the staying awake for hours on end, the endless crying, and — my personal favorite — the occasional complaint from a (usually childless) friend that you’ve fallen off the planet.

Arm yourself (or your favorite preggo) with the ample ammunition provided by Amy Krouse Rosenthal’s Post Partum Cards: 32 postcards are ready for tearing out and mailing, just to let people know that you’re still alive, and still have a sense of humor (even if you don’t have a spare minute). My favorite is the subtle approach, of course: “Wish you were here… helping with the baby so I could get some sleep, damn it.” It’s like poetry. -Mir
