This week I'm sharing...

Here's the synopsis:

Congratulations, you're a new mommy!

You've brought your brand-new bundle of joy home, and there's so much to look forward to: photos; baby's first word; clipping those oh-so-cute and very tiny fingernails; finding just the right stroller; sex again (gulp!); and, oh yes, losing the weight. 
  The joys of being a new mommy or daddy are endless, but so are the worries and the advice. Jenny McCarthy, the New York Times bestselling author of Belly Laughs, told you the truth about pregnancy and childbirth. Now she's telling the truth about baby's first year. 

With hilarious musings on desperately trying to recall lullabies, losing the weight, baby- proofing the house, encountering mommies with superbabies, postpartum depression, dueling grandmas, and still trying to lose the weight, Baby Laughs is the perfect companion for anyone trying to raise the next president, those just trying to get to the next naptime, and anyone who was ever in diapers.

Here are my thoughts:
At 211 pages, this is a super quick read.  As usual, Jenny McCarthy delivers the brutal truth about childbirth and the first year of the baby's life- and makes you laugh along the way!

And I have to say that her description of a C-section & recovery was exactly how mine went!  Except when she was freezing, I was sweating...and I swear I was covered in sweat for three weeks after birth!  TMI?  Sorry, it's true.

What are you reading?

This looks like a really cute book! I probably won't be reading it anytime soon though, but do think it'd be fun to read while pregnant.
