Tell me,do you hear your mother's voice coming from your mouth? If not,it's coming. Lol,be warned!
I love your Bad mother series and this one,wow,really,really enjoyed reading! Don't ever stop! Thank you!!!
I can relate to this book so much. I thought it was funny, and entertaining and totally enjoyable. It is crazy what people will tell you before you have kids, and it all total crap for the most part. Become parenthood is hard. And no kid, or parenting experience is going to be the same. The author tells of her experience, and it is so relatable. The sleep deprived nights of the baby’s first few months, most mother has been there.
I would definitely recommend the book. It’s so hilariously accurate. And a true tale of parenthood, and kids. Parenting is hard, and stressful, and as you read in this book, it’s also the most rewarding.
A brilliant, brilliant book that may instill fear and/or panic into any pregnant first time mom and howls of laughter from mom's living the reality.
Brutally honest, this book reminds us of all the "lies" we were told pre-pregnancy and pregnancy and how afterwards, if we don't repeat them to others, the human race will die out!
Demi's thoughts/interjections take this book to an even better level - the dad's perspective.
This is a story about how one couple went from a "we" to an "us" on their parenthood path. You'll recognise elements of yourself as parent throughout - reminding oneself that parenting is pretty much the same journey no matter where in the world you live.
In her book, Lies We Tell Mothers, the author tries to go over the lies new mothers hear, such as: "Pregnancy is such a special time," "Breast is best," "Your stretch marks will go eventually. Use cocoa butter!" She uses her own experience to refute the lies but not in scientific way but in a "Let me tell you how it actually is" way. The book is well-written and it was a pleasure to read it. Unfortunately, it only lasted 3 days. I might need to pick it up again sometimes. It is a fun and entertaining read. The comments from the author's husband made the book less like a read and more of a " conversation with the friends" situation.
I highly recommend Lies We Tell Mothers to new mothers, wanna be mothers, dads and anybody who is interested!
