Abstract:

Some women feel that motherhood is a calling and their purpose on earth. They somehow manage to make pregnancy look effortless, bring out the beauty in a screaming child, and keep the back seat of their cars as spotless as their kitchens. And then there's women like Liz Astrof. In this blunt and side-splittingly funny book of essays, Liz Astrof embraces the realities of motherhood (and womanhood) that no one ever talks about, from needing to hide from the kids on a regular basis to the eternal quest for time alone, from the terror of failing to sometimes seriously wondering whether this whole parenting thing was a big mistake. In vivid and relatable prose, she discusses her love for her career, how she's managed to overcome some of her own childhood trauma, and the ups and downs of raising the little demons she calls her own.
