Description
From the "New York Times" bestselling author of "Confessions of a Scary Mommy" and the wildly popular blog ScaryMommy.com, a hilarious new essay collection that exposes the "vicious lies" that every parent is told.
Newly pregnant and scared out of her mind, Jill Smokler lay on her gynecologist's examination table and was told the biggest lie she'd ever heard in her life: "Motherhood is the most natural thing in the world."
Instead of quelling her nerves like that well intentioned nurse hoped to, Jill was instead set up for future of questioning exactly what DNA strand she was missing that made the whole motherhood experience feel less than natural to her. Wonderful? Yes. Miraculous? Of course. Worthwhile? Without a doubt. But natural? Not so much.
Jill's first memoir, the "New York Times" bestseller "Confessions of a Scary Mommy," rocketed to national fame with its down and dirty details about life with her three precious bundles of joy. Now Jill returns with all-new essays debunking more than twenty pervasive myths about motherhood. She's here to give you what few others will dare: The truth.
