5 Mommy Books That Make You Laugh Out Loud
1. Just Wanna Pee Alone
We’re sure that the title of this book gives you consolation enough and confirms that you’re not alone. God knows it can be so crazy with a baby in the house that you don’t get any time at all. This book is a collection of essays from 36 different mothers narrating their unique experiences relating to the subject of well, peeing alone and more!
2. Double Time
This book is written by Jane Roper, a mother of twins, who puts down an extensive account of all those ridiculous, funny, tiresome and enjoyable moments that came her way while raising both kids. If you’re an emotional mom (aren’t we all?), we bet you would end up empathising and agreeing with her! Double Time is not only a funny book for moms with twins, but for mommies with any number of kids.
3. Porn for New Moms
No, don’t get misled by the name of the book. It is a harmless, satirical account of what new moms dream (read ‘fantasise’) about the most. For instance, taking a really long uninterrupted shower, daddy changing baby’s diapers, a clean house, ample time in hand for wine, and so on. It is a humorous, unputdownable tale of what new moms secretly wish their partner would do. Now, this is what hubby should gift you and follow, we say!
4. Let’s Panic About Babies
Don’t you panic enough already? Well, that is why you need some light moments every now and then and nothing could be better than this fun, sarcastic read. Written by Alice Bradley and Eden Kenney, this is a guide to discovering your new mommy side in wholly new ways. Definitely one of the best books for moms to read and thoroughly enjoy!
