I am in love with Annie Lamott. Thanks to my best friend for turning me on to her! My daughter is 8 now, but when she was a baby she did NOT have colic and I DID have a husband to help. All that said, I still found this book to be right on the money in describing the highs and lows of the first year of motherhood.
For those of you who have been upset at Annie's comments on circumcision and George Bush - lighten up. Those are her OPINIONS and the last time I looked, this was the United States wherein everyone had the right to express their opinion. Annie has a right and a parental duty to express her political opinions to her son - we are doing the same with our daughter. If you ask her about Bill Clinton she will tell you the truth; that he is a lying, sexual preditor. That is my opinion.
Regardless of your politics or your views on circumcision, please read this book. It is the perfect baby shower gift.
