Overview

“Pregnancy was a 90-minute massage compared to life now.”

After her little bundle of joy, Rowan (aka The Dictator) arrives, Rebecca Eckler wonders when the promised “rewarding” part will kick in. She wasn’t supposed to trade in tight jeans for baggy sweatpants, or give up the dream of sound sleep and a passionate sex life. Yet, even in the throes of her exhaustion, Rebecca gleans and shares some sound advice for modern moms, including everything you need to know on

• The Diaper Genie: “It’s been six weeks and we have yet to use this ‘must-have’ baby item because we can’t figure out how the damn thing works.”
• Achievement: “No matter how well I had done in school, no matter what my career accomplishments were, my mother had never been so proud of me as when I gave birth.”
• Keeping up appearances: “How is it possible that I haven’t had a drink in months, yet still look worse than I ever did hung over?”
• The effectiveness of baby monitors: “You can hear a baby screaming through walls. Unless you live in the Taj Mahal and place your baby at the other end of the palace, there is no way you won’t hear her cry.”
• Size matters: “I had made the mistake of trying on a pair of pre-pregnancy jeans, which I couldn’t get up past my knees. It was the worst decision I have ever made.”

With the same dry wit as her hilarious chronicle Knocked Up: Confessions of a Hip Mother-to-be, Eckler sets the record straight on being a new mom: the highs, the lows, and the sheer bliss that comes when you’re dealing with the demands of someone who’s not very large but undeniably in charge.

Praise for Knocked Up

    Funny and spot on!

    I have loved this book. My son is 4, so it's been awhile since I have had a newborn, but it's all come back to me reading this funny book. She tells it like it is, not holding back! A great read for any mother.

    I'm SO excited to see what happens next! I read her first book and fell head over heels in love with her & all the quirkyness throughout the book. LOVED Knocked Up and can't wait to read this one! CANNOT WAIT!!!

    A charmer

    No longer the star as she was in KNOCKED UP: CONFESSIONS OF A HIP MOTHER-TO-BE (not reviewed), Rebecca Eckler continues her diary entry muses this time as theDictator¿, Sir Rowen of 24/7 bodily secretions. Ms. Eckler quickly leans to sleep while changing diapers or during feeding time. She Forgets how she once looked with a good night sleep as the author avoids mirrors at all costs as she looks worse than her worst four poster hangover and of course pre Rowan clothing no longer fits. Perhaps the only one appreciating the arrival of the totalitarian Great Dictator is his maternal grandmother who enjoys the sweet revenge of watching her offspring suffer the way she once did. Profanity included (who can watch one¿s language on a few hours of sleep), this lighthearted and irreverent Wiped is an enjoyable diary especially for moms being mentored by a first child and to a lesser degree dads on the pitfalls of raising a tyrant who also serves as the perfect necker-checker chaperone.------------- Harriet Klausner
