I really enjoyed this book and showed several of the essays to friends and coworkers. I have recommended it to several people. The essays are posts from mommy-bloggers written over the last several years. The essays are very real and discuss the good, bad, and in between of motherhood. At turns it made me tear up, question my own mothering, feel I had a co-conspirator, made me go eehhk, and uhg, and ohhh, and snort out load in laughter.
Defiantly a book that any mom should read.
Covering just about every topic the What to Expect books don't cover, from illness to sleep to sex to not sleeping, Sleep is for the Weak just gets better as you go along.
As a father of three children, I'd highly recommend this to any new parent, person becoming a parent, grandparent, aunt, uncle, or scary playground guy. Throw out Dr. Sears and the rest of them. This is what you're going to need in the middle of the night when all you've got is five minutes and wayyy to much screaming and coffee under your belt.
