"Tales from the Mom Front" offers an insightful and engaging look at the early years of parenthood from the perspective of a first-time mother. Author and family therapist Rebecca Martorella chronicles her journey from pregnancy to preschool with a dose of realism and wit that reads like a conversation with a good friend. Unlike advice books that outline what to expect from parenthood, Martorella shares the unexpected moments that have parents everywhere wondering, "is it just me?" Stories include:
  • Building Baby Furniture-The First Parenting Challenge
  • Breasts, Bottles, How Do You Work These Things?
  • Family Vacation is an Oxymoron
  • First Date with the Babysitter
  • Eeek Daddy's in Charge and more. She reveals her mistakes and victories and encourages parents to trust their instincts, laugh at their blunders, and release themselves from the pressure to be a "perfect" parent. "Tales from the Mom Front" began as a newspaper column that earned praise from new and experienced parents and grandparents alike. Parents find a sympathetic voice in the author and are relieved to learn that they are not alone in their daily confusion and joy.
