Here's a dirty little secret. I've only finished two books since the birth of my first baby 3+ years ago. You should see the stack of half-read books on my nightstand. This is hard for me to admit because I always considered myself such a reader. The first book I actually completed was The Happiest Baby on the Block and that was out of pure desperation during those early days as a first time mother when I just wanted the baby to sleep, dammit! For the record - it's a great, helpful book.
Book #2 is Perfect Madness: Motherhood in the Age of Anxiety by Judith Warner. If you're a mom, it's a must read. Warner is a New York Times columnist and mother who writes about the state of motherhood today and the book really struck a cord with me. Come to the Darien Library next Thursday March 4 at 7pm to meet the author and learn more about her latest book, We've Got Issues: Children and Parents in the Age of Medication.
