Summary

I'm going to be totally honest. This is not the kind of audiobook that can help you. It's not a "how-to," a "when-to," or a "what-to-expect." It's not even endorsed by anyone remotely connected to the medical profession. (Although a cousin of mine who sells carpeting to doctors' offices not only found it "insightful" and "informative," but also felt that, "if properly vacuumed, it should last a lifetime.")

"A fine endorsement," you say. "But if I have only one audiobook to buy, shouldn't I go for the helpful one?" Let's compare. Those "know-it-all" books tell you how to have a happy, healthy pregnancy. My book mentions a squirrel. Those books tell you how to care for a newborn child. My book describes how tired I am. Those books give you essential information you can use in a life-threatening emergency. My book has some very amusing anecdotes about poop. So really, it's up to you. If you want to be prepared and well-informed, I understand. But if you enjoy hearing the words "pterodactyl" and "uterus" in the same book, you've come to the right place.

Classic Paul Reiser goodness

Any additional comments?

This is a logical follow on to Couplehood and has the same humor and timing that you come to expect from Paul Reiser. I can't wait to listen to Familyhood next!

Funny... if you like stories about babies

What did you like best about Babyhood? What did you like least?

Big fan of Paul who reads this book well BUT the content is not for me. The title should have been the give away but I was hoping for better stories.
