Let’s Panic About Giveaways!

posted by Momo Fali on March 8, 2011

From the new, pediatrician-approved, lactose-tolerant, unicorn-inducing book Let’s Panic About Babies!:


Maybe she’ll be really good at:

  • Inspiring people with her courage to persevere
  • Putting stamps on things
  • Pointing out rainbows
  • Hugs
  • Writing fake parenting books

Thank goodness my friends and fellow-bloggers, Alice and Eden fit into those categories!  Yes, all of them!  Oh, okay.  They are strong.  I have seen Eden deadlift a podium.

Alice and Eden took that strength (and courage to persevere) and wrote a book chock-full of advice for the expectant mother and new mother, alike.  There are even some fun facts thrown in for Daddy.  Like how to backpedal after you say, “How come I don’t have any clean socks?”

Their topics of discussion range from “Smells, sights, sounds and ideas that might induce nausea in the first trimester” (though, for the life of the Lebanese in me, I can’t imagine why they put Danny Thomas on this list) (also, they fail to mention that these things will continue to make you sick for years to come and is why I can no longer listen to Dave Matthews CD’s).

To, what to do “When your child acts out in the produce aisle”.  Pretend she’s not yours!

Here’s the thing about parenthood; there are many opportunities to laugh (or else you’d cry).  This book helps you realize that the thoughts you have aren’t yours alone.  All new mothers are lunatics.  Bonus?  You can blame the hormones.

And, guess what?  I’m not just going to tell you about the book.  I’m going to give a lucky reader a book too! No, not that book.  This book!

Just leave a comment on this post before March 11th at noon, EST to be entered.

Your baby will thank you. But, not until after the teen years.

    Why am I always first? I mean, sheesh, I literally just logged onto the computer for the first time in two hours, and discovered that you JUST POSTED. Weird.

    Oh, and I want this book. Thank you. Bye.

  • shelly

  • unmitigated me

    Excellent title, and a blurb from Mary Roach, one of my faves! Pick me! Pick me!

  • HouseofJules

    I will cry like a baby if I don’t win this book. (just kidding. I’ll cry like a grown woman crying over not winning a book.) (nah, I won’t really cry. But still, I hope I win!)

  • beth

    Hmmm….maybe I need to start to panic! about babies!

  • Janet S.

    I don’t even want to THINK about babies, but this would be a great gift for one of the reproducing-aged stepdaughters.

  • vegas

    Oooh, I want this book!! Want want want.

  • Melissa

    I would love to read that book. Today I was at the library and it was bad kid, poor mommy day…8 years old looked mighty fine and easy to me.

  • meleah rebeccah

    Oh,YAY. That book sounds fantastic!

  • AlisonH

    Here’s my post re screaming toddlers: http://spindyeknit.com/2011/02/parental-advisory/

    I want to read this book, meantime!

  • Bean

    I TOTALLY NEED THIS BOOK!!!!! Ok, not really, but it would be super groovy to give it to one of the four 4 to 7 month old babies I know. Actually, I’d probably give it to one of the moms…not the baby.
