    Pretty Funny

    Hahahaha......something for us childfree people to enjoy. Hilarious and quite enjoyable, although I wouldn't recommend it to any parent or any one who else who is easily offended.

    Hilarious and Honest

    With Baby Not On Board, Jennifer Shawne hands you a delicious platter of hilarious and honest insights affirming the childfree choice. Included in the novel are ways to embrace your childfree identity, how to celebrate/share your news (the un-baby shower of course!), childfree role models, quick replies to others' questions regarding your childfree status, fun quizzes/charts/lists, and lighthearted comparisons between life with kids and life without kids. Since each page delves very concisely into different aspects of the wonderful childfree lifestyle, this book is perfect even for those busy people on the go. Baby Not On Board affirms the childfree of all walks of life and those with a range of perspectives on the childfree life while offering lighthearted parents a few laughs as well. The tastiest icing on the cake is the comical illustrations by Anoushka Matus that enhance your laughter-packed experience. Baby Not On Board is well worth your time if you are chilfree and loving it, or another person looking for a good giggle!
