About the Author
Top Customer Reviews
Jenny discusses the fears that we all have in that first year (first #2, sex again, body image). In one instance, you are throwing your head back laughing, and the next, tearing up over a touching statement (mine was when she talks about moving to the back seat to be with her son right before they leave the hospital - - I totally did that as well).
To the people who are saying that she is giving incorrect information, or glossing over things, you need to remember who wrote the book. I think she did a very good job giving snip-its of info on things that she did not experience herself. It was nice to read about two sides of a story (stay at home vs. working mom) and not feeling bad for wanting to be either one of them.
Thank you Jenny for relaying hilarious information about raising a child. As my first-born son grows, (5 months) I am discovering every day that motherhood is truly the "best piece of heaven on earth."
Let me tell you, when my husband is late and I am nine months pregnant...it's just UGLY. Jenny, my husband would like to thank you for saving his life that day. See, he was two hours late...but I didn't care. I sat my butt down in a comfy mall chair and started reading.
I was laughing so loud that people were walking by me shaking their heads. A sweet little old lady sat down next to me and said, "What are you reading dear?"
How could I tell her I was laughing about baby poop, circumcisions, hemorrhoids, and cottage cheese butt? I told her I was reading a very funny book on being a new mom. She said she was glad there were books out there that made it funny and that they didn't have anything like it in her day.
It wasn't as good as 'Baby Laughs' but still a great read. Jenny tackles all the grudging aspects of new-mom hell with her usual crudely funny sense of humor that we love her for. My personal favorite section is the one where she's trying to remember the lyrics to old lullabies to sing to her child. I found myself doing the same thing with my own son...I even went as far as throwing in whatever lyrics seemed to rhyme. Since I have no idea what comes after "Momma's gonna buy you a mockingbird", my poor child is becoming a connoisseur of Motown instead. I was so glad to hear I wasn't the only one who sounded ridiculous trying to sing a beautiful lullaby to their child.

This was an easy read and really funny. I liked the pregnancy book better, but maybe that's because I'm still pregnant.Published 1 month ago by Cassandra K.

Wife really loved it, but that was before the author started bashing vaccines. I don't think the book pushes that opinion. Good for first time mothers she says.Published 6 months ago by Todd E. Farrell
