Yay The perfect time
To strip down naked and scream
When Mommy's on the phone.
This irreverent collection of candid haiku is full of laugh-out-loud observations on dirty diapers, playdate anxiety, obnoxious purple dinosaurs, choking hazards, stay-at-home dads, and more. It's a book of verse every new mother will appreciate. Read, laugh, roll your eyes, and know that you are not alone
