Maternity Leave by Julie Halpern

Latest book read is Maternity Leave by Julie Halpern. I read this book faster than any other I’ve read this year (two days). It’s a book about new motherhood, and as the title says, during the maternity leave of the narrator and main character. The book is written in a diary style and I liked that. It helped make the book easy to read and a fast read. If you like the website Scary Mommy or are a fan of the creator of that site, Jill Smokler, then I think you’ll like this book. If you are a parent of a child that was not a “unicorn” baby as an infant, I think you’ll like this book. (A unicorn baby is a dream baby: one that sleeps through the night early on, isn’t a big crier, and is just generally easy.) If you like sarcasm and a “tell it like it is” in regards to parenting, I think you’ll like this book. It’s also a good book if you are in the midst of parenting a non-unicorn infant and want to not feel alone.
