Tales from the Crib

Sugar and spice and everything sucks…Lara Stone is back again, and she’s discovering that nine months of being miserably pregnant were nothing compared to the misery once the baby finally shows up. But when Lara’s long-estranged dad appears on her doorstep (literally) with his ex-stripper fiancée, her husband begins flirting with a hot twenty-five year-old and her nanny starts casting voodoo spells to keep her from losing those last ten pounds, Lara soon finds that sleepless nights, S & M-like pumping bras and a raging case of the post-baby blues are the last of her problems. As Lara continues with her quest to become a “good” mother, she tries to keep sane among the Gucci-clad Mommunists from her Mommy and Me class, and just when she is certain that she will never figure out this nurturing thing, she finds support in the unlikeliest of places and comes to understand that – unlike diapering – there’s no “right” way to love someone.
