Full of relatable and hilarious observations on parenting, this book had me laughing long after I'd finished it (and then recited each poem to my equally hysterical husband). With titles ranging from "I am fully aware the wheels on the bus go round and round" to "Is your sense that you will ever move out of the house?", this book is perfect for anyone in the midst of parenthood, no matter what season they find themselves in.
Are you a parent? Do you want to be a parent? Do you have a uterus or know someone who does? Then I recommend this book for you.
Lucy Knisley's personal experiences are balanced by her research on obstetrics throughout history. I am fascinated by the anecdotes and myths perpetuated by science, politics, and well-meaning mothers and mother-in-laws, but most endearing are the illustrations of Knisley's rocky path to parenthood. She has a terrifying pregnancy experience, no doubt about it, but her story is warm and hopeful.
