Lara Stone is embarking on a new segment of her life, motherhood. Unfortunately, she's less than thrilled. None of her clothes fit, she's not in love with her new daughter, Parker, she hates breast feeding, and she has no time for herself. Moreover, Andrew, her husband, seems to be flirting with a Barbie clone from agility class- dog agility class, that is, and the nanny she hires out of desperations might be trying to steal Parker and Andrew's affections and hex Lara. She feels substandard at the momunists meeting, and her ex-father just showed up wanting to be her dad again. Oh, and he's engaged to a retired Madam. Perhaps we can understand why Lara's feeling a bit like a witch with a capital B, she has good reasons, but somehow, she needs to find a way to make her life work despite the mitigating circumstances. Help comes from the most unexpected Mary Poppins ever. ............ Even if you do not have a baby, a lot of what Lara says makes perfect sense. Reading this will NOT give you any desire to become a mother, and in fact may discourage you from it. However, it is a fun book, peppered with cultural references that make Lara seem like someone you might know.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.
