ABOUT THIS BOOK
‘What? The baby’s here? Okay, that’s good. But do you promise me I don’t have to do anything else now?’
Once upon a time there was a woman who used to sleep eight hours a day and laze around on weekends. Her clothes were free of gross body fluids and her bag rarely had biscuit crumbs. Then she decided to have a baby.
With books and the Internet for friends—and a husband who responded commonsensically—she thought she had it all sorted. But then her baby arrived, and everything turned upside down!
The baby made it his mission to present a new surprise every day. Mommy, after fighting hours of helplessness, came to learn that parenting was a lost battle. There was only one way to survive—keep calm, laugh on and write as the baby dozes. The result: I Made a Booboo, a rollicking account of the trials, tribulations and occasional triumphs of a first-time mom.
P.S. Everyone did live happily ever after (albeit only when the baby willed so).
