choice or chance, the incidences of women in the late thirties or
forties having their first child are on the rise. Whether the pregnancies
are sought or surprise isn't important; all that matters is maintaining
sanity. And what better way to keep a grip than through humor?
Make Me Feel Like An Unnatural Woman is Judith Newman's candid
chronicle of seven years of fertility treatments, eight months of
morning sickness and the first eighteen months spent rearing two
sons who resemble Schwarzenegger and DeVito from the movie Twins.
Add an aloof husband; a righteous nanny and an elusive home improvement
contractor for a bittersweet blend of abstract actuality.
Newman, who writes a monthly column for Ladies Home Journal, treats
readers to a satirical, yet utterly honest look at parenthood. Her
interpretations of infant facial expression are laugh-out-loud hilarious.

journal of life with little ones.
