Babies sure are cute and cuddly-wuddly and soft and sweet. They're also smelly, sleep-depriving little dictators who want what they want, when they want it, which is NOW NOW NOW OMFG I HATE YOU YOU RUINED MY ONE MONTH OLD LIIIIIIIFE!!!!!! And, of course, if they don't have 115% organic everything and their entire existences aren't childproofed, you are a Bad Mother. (smack, smack!)
Written by Alice Bradley & Eden Kennedy of the eponymous website, Let's Panic About Babies!: How to Endure and Possibly Triumph Over the Adorable Tyrant who Will Ruin Your Body, Destroy Your Life, Liquefy Your Brain, and Finally Turn You into a Worthwhile Human Being ($8, released March 1, 2011) is a parenting book for people who hate Smug Parenting Books. It's jokey, but we promise, there is some worthwhile advice in there for you tired, milk-and-poop-stained soldiers of new parenthood. And, if nothing else, it'll put a smile on your face for the first time in awhile.
