With a title I can totally relate to, this “guide” is loaded with LOL satire that doesn’t take itself too seriously. Written by two of our favorites, Alice Bradley and Eden Kennedy, Let’s Panic wil make you laugh at all the ways you are going to screw up that sweet little baby. In other words: It’ll help that new mom lighten up.
A lot of parenting books can make you feel like you are doing it all wrong if you don’t follow their patented XYZ formula. Not so with the new book Sh*tty Mom that’s sweeping the parenting world this month. It’s like a guide for those of us who admit that yeah, sometimes we check our phones at the playground. The horror.
Mama of twins Jane Roper has us laughing and crying over the sweet, poignant, and utterly ridiculous moments in parenting young children. Her book Double Time is ideal for a fellow twin parent, though parents of singles will definitely relate…and giggle.
Sleep deprivation is no joke, but man, it can feel good to know that zillions of other parents are doing the endless bedtime dance with their child. Which is why the totally not-PC runaway best-seller, Go the F*ck to Sleep is still among my very favorite books that belong on the very tippity top of the bookshelf. Send it to your exhausted friend who will need to hear the prose in her head as she staggers down the hallway to answer those cries…again.
