Amazon.com Amazon.com Review (ISBN 0312203624, Hardcover)The secret to surviving parenthood? It's laughter, according to author Sandi Kahn Shelton. In this delightful book, Shelton, who's also the humor columnist for Working Mother magazine, dishes up hilarious insights into the inner workings of infants and toddlers that only a mother of three could provide. From sleep deprivation to sleeping with toasters, choosing child-care, and waiting for poop, Shelton touches on all the hottest topics of the first three years of parenthood. Organized by subject, instead of in chronological order, you'll find witty and wonderful stories in chapters such as "Why Babies Cry," "The Daddy Dance," "You Can Leave Home Without Them," "Parenting in Public," and "Life in the Terrible Twos." Shelton at one moment bombards us with such pure silliness as "Spaghetti goes on the head; that's why it's made in strands," and then, at the next opportunity, turns on the compassion with "you're most likely going to live through this time in your life. Especially if you can laugh. In fact, definitely if you can laugh." With such wit and wisdom, Shelton will help you see the lighter side of parenthood--and, hopefully, help you enjoy it even more. --Kelley Smith

Sandi Kahn Shelton takes readers on a wild ride through the journey of parenting -- from the first disillusioning night home from the hospital with a brand-new baby, to the joys of toilet training, and the hair-raising terrible twos. Candid, uplifting, and side-splittingly funny, this book is just what every new mom and dad needs to help them see the lighter side of changing diapers, meddling in-laws, baby's first curse word, and, of course, sleepless nights.
