Waiting for Birdy
A Year of Frantic Tedium, Neurotic Angst, and the Wild Magic of Growing A FamilyBook - 2005
To fifty thousand readers, Catherine Newman is the beloved author of "Bringing Up Ben & Birdy," a weekly column on babycenter.com. Now in the delightfully candid, outlandishly funny Waiting for Birdy , Newman charts the year she anticipated the birth of her second child while also coping with the realities of raising a toddler. As she navigates life with her existentially curious and heartbreakingly sweet three-year-old, and her doozy of a pregnancy, she lends her irresistibly unique voice to the secret thoughts and fears of parents everywhere. Filled with quirky warmth and razor-sharp wit, Waiting for Birdy captures the universal wonder, terror, humor, and tenderness of raising a family.
