Just when you thought you could cook (hey, one meal counts),
clean (if the queen was coming), and seduce a man (well,
long enough to get married), life throws you a curveball
that makes all of your previous ineptitudes in life pale in
comparison. With the appearance of one little extra line on
a pregnancy test, you're thrown into a world of covering up
leaks on shirts and taking a pacifier away from a
two-year-old who has the grip of a pit bull.
In this funny, smart, and honest book, Jane Buckingham cuts
through the clutter to give you simple information and
practical advice for navigating the different stages of
motherhood. From how to get your child to sleep and how to
wean, to how to get him off the pacifier and how to stop his
tantrums, this book will help moms feel in the know and in
control! Some of Buckingham's favorite tips:
* If your baby has a hard time feeding because of a
stuffy nose, turn on the shower to steam up the bathroom and
feed her there.
* Put your children's paints in an empty egg carton --
it's the perfect size, and there's no mess to clean up when
you're done. Use an old raincoat with the arms cut off as a
* You should buy a new car seat, rather than borrowing a
friend's old car seat, as there are constant safety
upgrades. Also, be sure you are the person registered to
that car seat (send in that registration card!) so that
you'll be notified in case of a recall.
* Keep the three-day rule in mind: Almost any bad habit
can be broken in three days. Granted, they may be tough,
torturous days, but you can do it!
The Modern Girl's Guide to Motherhood helps modern
moms do it all with love, style, and flair!
