Write Review

Rated 0

Prose: non-fiction, Humour

Hilarious linked essays about parenthood from film and TV writer irector/producer/actor whose work has been seen on Comedy Central, The Disney Channel, PBS, The Oxygen Network, VH-1, and in the New York Times and the Huffington Post.

Looking for the perfect book to help you survive childbirth and parenting with your sanity intact?Look elsewhere.For Johanna Stein (writer/comedian/forward/slash/abuser and occasionally neurotic/immature/way-too-candid mom), parenting is an extreme sport. Her stories from the trenches may not always be shared experiences- Have you ever wondered if your baby's "soft spot" is like a delete key? Trained your preschooler for a zombie invasion? Accused a nearly nude stranger of being pregnant? Made sweet, bimonthly love to your spouse while your toddler serenaded you through the adjoining wall? Attempted to calm your screaming baby on an airplane with a hand puppet, only to have it lead to one of the most disgusting experiences of your life? - but they will always make you laugh.So, no, this book won't teach you how to deal with nipple blisters or Oedipal complexes. But if you want to learn why you should never attempt to play a practical joke in the hospital delivery room, then you're in the right place.
