There Are Moms Way Worse Than You
But probably not many. ... I joke, I joke. I'm not my Aunt Jan, ladies. When I say there are moms way worse than you, and definitely when author Glenn Boozan says There Are Moms Way Worse Than You, we mean it.
Of course, when Boozan says it, he backs it up with examples such as a mama giraffe (kicks newly born calf until he walks) and a mama sexton beetle (raises children inside a decomposing mouse) so not sure exactly how much better his reassurances will make you feel.
There Are Moms Way Worse Than You is a light and funny baby gift for new moms. Or old mother-in-laws who've never before questioned their past parenting skills, but should maybe start, especially now that they're beginning to rely on daughters and sons-in-law to take care of them. (And on that note, check out my other subversive gifts for people you don't like much). Paired with full-color illustrations by Priscilla Witte, the book shares true facts from the animal kingdom that demonstrate good parenting is relative, and if you're doing your best, yet worried you're doing your worst, you're doing just fine.
Definitely better than panda moms, anyway, who will ditch one of the babies if they have twins because taking care of two is too damn hard.
