Description

You've got circles under your eyes, crusty white stuff on your clothes, and strained carrots in your hair--welcome to the lighter, messier and definitely funnier side of parenthood!

In this laugh-out-loud collection of wit and wisdom, the WorkingMother columnist and author of You Might As Well Laugh delivers chuckles, cheer, and compassion--guaranteed to help parents survive the first three years. From breast feeding to toilet training and everything in-between, Sleeping Through the Night explores:

Parent Lingo--or words you never thought you'd want to know the meaning of, like Onesies, Zwieback, and Projectile Vomiting

The going bribery rates for toddlers (M&Ms are the currency of choice)

All-time favorites toys: the toilet brush, lids from pots and pans, anything in your cosmetic drawer, fireplace tools, your keys

How to reconnect with old what's-his-name, that guy across the pillow

Things NOT to discuss with the parents in the park (like your babysitter's phone number)



Praise For Sleeping Through the Night...and Other Lies: The Mysteries, Marvels, and Mayhem in the First Three Years of Parenthood

"The true successor to Erma Bombeck's throne." --WorkingMother magazine

"With a breezy style that belies a sophisticated wit, Shelton exaggerates daily life with a baby, but only just a little. A welcome addition to the parenting bookshelf." --Publishers Weekly
