In her trial by fire approach to motherhood, Mala Farmer offers us a humorously poetic look into life as a new mother. It's MOTHERHOOD...what'd YOU EXPECT? is a compilation of zany poems about the anticipation, surprises, and total chaos of new motherhood as seen through the eyes of mother, baby, and even the family pet. Whimsically illustrated by Cody Blair, the poems provide an off-the-wall look at pregnancy tests, unexpected body changes, poop, sleepless nights, play pens, pet jealousy, and more.
After forty years of preparation time and still being totally unprepared for motherhood, Ms. Farmer felt it only right to celebrate through poetry her initiation into the realm of new motherhood. As a seasoned professional in the field of international education, Ms. Farmer found herself on the receiving end of instruction from a six pound, six ounce teacher by the name of Nicolas.
It's MOTHERHOOD...WHAT'D YOU EXPECT? is a perfect gift for baby showers, Mother's Day, or for someone who just needs a lift.
