Overview

Each title in the Not Your Mother's Book series contains approximately 60 real-life stories dedicated to a unique theme, drawn from the passion and experience of dozens of writers in a whimsical and entertaining mix of irreverence and humor. Founded by former coauthors and editors of the Chicken Soup for the Soul series, this similarly styled anthology series foregoes the sad, sappy, preachy, or death-oriented stories that were that series' hallmark, and unlike that series, is never afraid to be a little risqué. These stories are funny, daring, different, and smart.

Becoming a parent is part of the circle of life, and children bring joy to life—that and poopy diapers. The stories in this book begin with conception and end with becoming a parent to a parent. Every story in between offers laughter and those joyous moments to which all parents can relate.

    From A to Z, everything you've ever heard about parenting and more. This is a fun read, something we could all use more of...fun! I think this would be a perfect gift for new parents, or for baby showers. It brought back memories of being a young parent, and stumbling my way through. Great book!

    It is hard to believe that there are no reviews on this book! I've given several as gifts and they've gotten enormous applause. Sometimes it is hard to tell who is the parent in some of these stories. And it is actually fun to read a book that makes you laugh out loud. Very creative! I'll look for more of these books. They are not so spiritual as the other anthology. These have a bit of spice to them. Highly recommend to anyone loving a good short story.
