From theNew York Timesbestselling author ofConfessions of a Scary Mommyand the wildly popular blog, a hilarious new essay collection that exposes the “vicious lies” that every parent is told.Newly pregnant and scared out of her mind, Jill Smokler lay on her gynecologist’s examination table and heard the biggest lie she’s ever been told in her life: “Motherhood is the most natural thing in the world.” Now, the brutally honest and hilarious memoirist and blogger returns with more refreshingly candid, no-holds-barred stories and anecdotes about the harsh reality of motherhood. As much as she loves being a mom, there isnothingthat Jill finds “natural” about getting up at 3 a.m. to quiet a crying baby, awkward play dates with other people’s kids, or even breastfeeding. Some other mommyhood myths she humorously debunks include: You’ll Be Back to Your Old Self in No Time, Boys Are Easier Than Girls, Being Home With Your Kids Is the Most Fulfilling Job in the World, Parenting Strengthens a Marriage, It Gets Easier, and many more. Including funny sidebars and helpful tips, as well as a “eulogy” to Jill’s pre-baby body, this witty and outrageously truthful collection is sure to make you laugh out loud—and perhaps even cry—in solidarity.
