Description

When does 1 + 1 = 3 (or more)? When you've got a baby on the way. Part of that new math, says #1 New York Times bestselling author Jill Conner Browne-whom USA Today calls "just plain funny"-includes the addition of an outsize sense of humor to balance the equation of your growing family. The Sweet Potato Queens' Guide to Raising Children for Fun and Profit is a hilarious (though not scientifically tested) wink at the time-honored mysteries of parenting, because anybody who has ever had a kid or has ever known one knows that the experience is neither fun nor profitable-so you might as well laugh! As each generation begins its hopeful, happy, and, yes, sometimes harrowing journey as Parent and Child, together they spawn a new body of "knowledge," the nuances of which will elude the Experts every time. Here are stories of the things we do for Mother Love-or, the most incredibly full-time volunteer job ever-and tips guaranteed not to be found in any other parenting guide. -How to talk to a pregnant woman -How the diamonds on delivery policy can speed up the labor nature intended -Why a good mother is always adept at subterfuge -The list of things you wouldn't think you would have to tell kids not to do -Why mothers of sons can never retire -Why, for parents, it's just a short drive to the poorhouse The Sweet Potato Queens' Guide to Raising Children for Fun and Profit will have everyone who's ever been a parent-or has ever thought of becoming one-or has ever been a child-or is still one-giggling and grinning (no small feat) through those childbearing years...and beyond.
