Are you looking for a gift for expecting mom with a good sense of humor? You should check out There Are Moms Way Worse Than You book that encourages young mothers to stop stressing about the challenges of caring about a newborn. This book backs it up with examples such as a mama giraffe (kicks newly born calf until he walks) and a mama sexton beetle (raises children inside a decomposing mouse) so not sure exactly how much better his reassurances will make an expecting mother feel, but it’s worth a try.
This book is also a great gift for old mother-in-laws who’ve never before questioned their past parenting skills, but should maybe start, especially now that they’re beginning to rely on daughters and sons-in-law to take care of them. Paired with full-color illustrations by Priscilla Witte, this book shares true facts from the animal kingdom that demonstrate good parenting is relative, and if you’re doing your best, yet worried you’re doing your worst, you’re doing just fine. Definitely better than panda moms, anyway, who will ditch one of the babies if they have twins because taking care of two is too damn hard.
Where to get this hilariously awesome book? There Are Moms Way Worse Than You is available on Amazon, but you should hurry, because it’s so funny and spot on that it may be soon sold out.
