My cousin Molly turned me on to the Pregnant Chicken website and so far I've liked everything I've read. Its gotten me in trouble though, as I read it on my ipad while rocking Emma to sleep - I start silently crying laughing, meanwhile shaking her as I try to reign it in. I admit, that I'm a little loopy & sleep deprived, but I think this is funny stuff.
In the one I read tonight, Why You're Not Failing as a Mother, I got laughing at the following:

It’s perpetual motion with a generous layer of guilt and self-doubt spread on top, and that takes its toll.
Feeling like you also need to keep on top of scrapbooking, weight loss, up-cycled onesies, handprints, crock pot meals, car seat recalls, sleeping patterns, poo consistency, pro-biotic supplements, swimming lessons, electromagnetic fields in your home and television exposure, is like trying to knit on a rollercoaster – it’s fucking hard..."
