Let's Panic about Babies!: How to Endure and Possibly Triumph Over the Adorable Tyrant Who Will Ruin Your Body, Destroy Your Life, Liquefy Your Brain, and Finally Turn You into a Worthwhile Human Being by Alice Bradley, Eden M. Kennedy

BABIES. Maybe you're thinking of having one. There might even be one inside you right now, draining nutrients from your system via a tube growing from its midsection. Or maybe you've already got one around the house, somewhere, and you're responsible for its continued survival. You're saddled with a helpless being whom you've agreed to house and feed and love with all your heart for the rest of your life, more or less.

Either way, you're confused, you're frightened, and 911 won't take your calls anymore. But don't despair! Let's Panic About Babies! is here to hold your hand and answer some important, age-old baby-related questions, including:

- How can I be sure I'm pregnant? (Torso swells gradually until baby falls into underpants.)

- Did I just pee myself? (Yes.)

- What happens if I have sex during my pregnancy? (Your baby will be born with a full, lush beard.)

- How can I tell if I've chosen the wrong pediatrician? (He/she can't pronounce "stethoscope.")

- How do I make sure my baby loves me back? (Voodoo.)

From the moment they're created until the day they steal our cars, our babies demand center stage in our lives. So join Alice and Eden as they tell you (and your lucky partner!) exactly what to think and feel and do, from morning sickness to baby's first steps. They know everything!

I work at a bookstore and am excited to meet this author on April 9th at my store. This books was truly one of the funniest things I've ever read and therefore I have been recommending it to any and all customers. Customers who are pregnant or that are thinking about procreating or even if they already have! Job well done! Now we just need the ebook format!
