“…A beautiful tribute to motherhood, it realistically captures some of the not so easy moments that produce our most precious memories. Full of wisdom, charming anecdotes, and sensible ideas, it would make the perfect accompaniment to the newly pregnant mother’s Bible, Heidi Murkoff’s What to Expect When You’re Expecting. New and not so new mothers will find this satirical introduction to motherhood enjoyable and delightfully entertaining.” –Susan Sewell for Readers’ Favorite (5 star review)
