From the comedian behind the popular parenting blog The Ugly Volvo comes a refreshing spin on the baby milestone book. Instead of a place to lovingly capture the first time baby sleeps through the night, this book shows what it's like the first time baby rolls off the bed/sofa/changing table, leaving mum or dad in a state of pure terror (it happens). These 100 rarely documented but all-too-realistic milestonesâ��such as "First Time Baby Says a Word You Didn't Want Her to Say"â��provide comfort, solidarity, and comic relief for new parents. Laugh-out-loud relatable text and distinctive paper-cut illustrations of these "bad" parenting moments make this a must-have book for anyone entering the mysterious club of parenthood.
"Her book, "Welcome To The Club, 100 Parenting Milestones You Never Saw Coming" was released last week and I mean to tell you that it is everything Raquel is: quirky, warm, and pee your pants so much that it runs down your leg and stains your carpet funny." - KeeperOfTheFruitLoops.com
