This is one of the funniest books about what it means to be a mother. I was laughing so hard I was crying during numerous parts of this book. There are so many things I could relate to in this book, like what it means to become a mother, how your body changes, how your relationship changes with your spouse and how you relate the world in general when you are sleep deprived. I recommend this book to all mother out there, such a great read! ( )

The Mother of all Motherhood novels.

In this riotously funny, ruefully honest, and irresistibly warmhearted debut, Samantha Wilde writes about one new mother who discovers the wonders and terrors of motherhood—one hilarious crisis at a time. For new moms, potential moms-to-be, and anyone who just wants to (wisely) live the experience vicariously…

New mom Joy McGuire hasn’t changed her sweatpants since her baby was born. Of course she’s crazy about her newborn son; it’s her distracted, work-obsessed husband and his impossible mother she can’t stand. Joy turns to her own mom for support, but she’s too busy planning her fourth wedding to a suspicious self-help guru. Sure, Joy’s a woman on the brink, but it’s nothing a little sleep, sanity, and chocolate can’t fix.

Until her old college boyfriend shows up at their ten-year reunion. The one she was still in love with when she married her husband. It must be the lack of sleep, because Joy is starting to think she might have ended up with the wrong man. Not to mention she’s obsessed with her sexy yoga instructor, who might just be interested in her. Joy used to be single, skinny, and able to speak in complete sentences, but who is she now? As she’s trying to figure that out, her husband goes missing….

Frank, bawdy, and full of keenly self-aware observations, this novel tells the story of one new mother, three men, one marriage, and the baby love that keeps us up at night

New mom Joy McGuire hasn't changed her sweatpants since her baby was born. Of course she's crazy about her newborn son; it's her distracted, work-obsessed husband and his impossible mother she can't stand. With no support from her mom forthcoming, she counts on a little sleep, sanity, and chocolate to fix all her problems--until her old college boyfriend shows up at their ten-year reunion, a sexy yoga intructor turns her insides aflutter, and her husband goes missing! Motherhood's wonderful, but why does it have to be one hilarious crisis after another?… (more)
