Sandi Kahn Shelton takes readers on a wild ride through the journey of parenting — from the first disillusioning night home from the hospital with a brand-new baby, to the joys of toilet training, and the hair-raising terrible twos. Candid, uplifting, and side-splittingly funny, this book is just what every new mom and dad needs to help them see the lighter side of changing diapers, meddling in-laws, baby’s first curse word, and, of course, sleepless nights.

“Shelton touches on almost every parenting topic imaginable, with brief essays grouped by subjects such as sleeping, crying, nursing, dressing, feeding, talking, worrying, calming, separating and, of course, potty training. Shelton’s book is a welcome addition to the parenting bookshelf.” –Publishers Weekly

Five Star Review on Amazon By A Customer

I’ve just had my third child and wish there were authors brave enough to have written books like this during my first two pregnancies. Very funny and Honest. I love the chapter on Baby Gear. The hilarious reality of all the things we think we need to care for a human that is smaller then the family dog is too true.

About the Author

I was born in Jacksonville, Florida, where I wrote my first book of fiction (a story about a king who was tired) when I was five years old and sold it to the neighbors so I could get money for ice cream. Since then, I’ve been a newspaper reporter, a columnist for Working Mother magazine, a free-lance writer, the author of three non-fiction humor books about parenting–and now, at last, as the author of three novels, I’m happy to be back to my fiction roots. Someday perhaps I’ll do an update on the tired king. Meanwhile, I’m working on a new book, a love story, in between letting my golden retriever in and out of the house every couple of minutes or so.
