In Blindsided by a Diaper, Dana Bedford Hilmer has craftily compiled a collection by various respected writers discussing their personal accounts of how the dynamics of parenting has transformed their cozy and not so cozy relationship of two to the sometimes chaotic whirlwind of family life.
It used to be just the two. Now enters a baby, or maybe even a few kids, and the luxury of time–to frolic, talk, romance, and simply hang out–is gone, replaced by a big dose of chaos and the demands of little people who rule the home with small, adorable iron fists.
The refreshing honesty of the men and women authors featured in Blindsided by a Diaper is tantamount to a productive stint on the therapist’s couch. Or rather, a group therapy session where parents vent!
Whether you are expecting or already have a house full of little ones or even contemplating having children, this book will be your survivor’s tool and many of the authors who candidly shared their experiences in this collection will become your friends!
