When I was pregnant the first time around I was working with a magazine publishing company. They showered me with very nice gifts and complemented me on the way I looked…I knew that the added 55 lbs on short, little me — well, they were just being nice. I knew I was carrying a tank! And I craved pie-crust all the time..but that’s another story.
I was also giving this book as baby shower gifts for a few years but it has since disappeared off the shelves. It was heartbreaking because I knew, like me, my friends were looking for something (anything) that would help navigate us in the hazy years of parenthood. It was always the most welcomed gift. But as mentioned, it’s gone.
