Hey, babies of the world! Your mom could use a little help. Why don't you make yourself useful already? McSweeney's Baby Be of Use Books ($25) are several instruction books on things she's probably going to need your help with. Let's see. We've got Baby Do My Banking, Baby Find Me Some Lovin', Baby Fix My Car, and Baby Mix Me a Drink, just to name a few. This means a lot to her, so get to it, okay? You can worry about all that learning how to hold your own head up and learning to talk stuff later.
