Motherhood Comes Naturally (and Other Vicious Lies) by Jill Smokler

I read Confessions of a Scary Mommy by the same author and it was very funny.

She's back again confronting "lies" that we all hear about motherhood such as:
Lie #5 Having Kids Keeps You Young
Lie #9 You'll Get More Sleep When They Are Older
Lie #12 Going from Two to Three Kids is a Breeze
Lie #17 A House Without Children Is An Empty One

A very funny book that I read quite quickly. It seems like some of what she writes is pretty extreme, but then she includes comments that anonymous readers have left on her website confessing to their own "scary mommy" thoughts, and it makes me wonder how true it all is.
