Editorial Reviews

From Booklist

Certainly, this book on motherhood won’t ring a bell for everyone (nor ring everyone’s bell, for that matter). This is a warts-and-all (and by warts, think enemas, “boob sweat” that smells like goat cheese coming from breasts called “Big Berthas,” and the like) tale from a nurse who wanted kids all her life and then had them. Seasoned mothers may not care to be reminded that breast-feeding sucks (no pun intended) or that kids are a difficult and often thankless job. Those who haven’t lept this particular fence might find useful information here, presented in a grimly determined jolly-despite-it-all tome with such chapters as “Awkward Naked Moments,” “Fire the Ho,” and “Boys Have a Penis.” (There’s news! Shouldn’t boys have penises?) O’Bryant has a husband covering the bills and often nearby relatives covering the slack, and so she focuses on getting her shape back, finding a bra that fits (her Big Berthas don’t quite match), and, of course, raising her daughters. If you’re looking for an in-your-face, chipper-mom tell-all, complete with baby talk (“DON’T ’PANK ME!! PWEASE, MOMMA”), Ketchup serves. --Eloise Kinney
