ABOUT THIS BOOK
As a career-driven professional, things were fairly organized and predictable in this woman’s life—that is, until she became a mother. What I Didn’t Expect When I Was Expecting chronicles a mom’s tempestuous journey, as she raises three children, moves continents and handles the demands of a high-pressure job.
What follow are rollicking anecdotes—of a mother, teetering on the brink of sleep-deprivation-induced-delirium, picking up new survival skills. These include strengthening her reflexes to dodge food projectiles; learning the art of controlling weak bladder muscles; and remaining sober during children’s birthday parties. Along the way, we’re also witness to her comical (albeit failed) attempts at becoming a ‘tiger mom’!
What I Didn’t Expect When I Was Expecting highlights a mother’s struggle as she strives to strike a balance between her children and her career by ‘leaning in’ without toppling over.
