After eighteen years of childless marriage novelist Anne Enright was shocked to find herself pregnant Being the sharp observer of human behaviour and honest writer that she is she decided to keep track of her own thoughts and reactions on her pregnancy and the birth of her first and very uickly second child The result is a very clear eyed rational and terribly funny memoir of a woman who is surprised by life fiercely in love with her kids but very honest all the whileI absolutely loved this book Too often for me anyway birth and early childhood stories tend to the saccharine leaving me feeling a bit guilty for perhaps not appreciating my little miracles enough perhaps they get at the little voice that always wonders if I m mother enough Those that don t leave me feeling somehow lacking often leave me afraid for the children of these women who clearly don t enjoy motherhood at all Enright gets it just right in my book As a mother who also had her children later in lifeand who tends toward the honest wondering if there s something wrong with me that I don t find newborns lovely not even my own They look sort of like turtles to me I found Enright s clear eyed view of pregnancy childbirth and early motherhood very motherhood credential affirming Enright very clearly loves her children with all her heart but she s not afraid to say that not every bit of it is lovely Her observations on the various bodily fluids that leak from the baby and the mommy the sleeplessness even the loneliness of the modern new mother rang so many bells for me just as many as her thoughts on the soft skin the baby smiles the cuddles and giggles that we hear about much often Maybe it s her Irish practicality that allows her to be this honest maybe it has something to do with being a mature mother either way I ve never nodded along with a book about motherhood as often as I ve done with this book I ve already told my teenage daughters that this is the book they need to read to know what real early motherhood is like in fact I m buying a copy for each of them I don t know why this took two years post UK release to be released in the US but I m very glad to have chanced upon it A lovely book

Cute and funny Made me remember what it was like to have a new baby I especially loved her description of a newborn baby s eyes and how it looks at you when it is first born Oh my gosh how could I forget that It s been a loooong time I would have liked to know about how the author decided to have a baby after 18 years of marriage and then fall into it so naturally That part wasn t explored at all But I certainly could relate to just about everything else in the book It s funny to read a book like this when my kids are so much older and I am so far past the baby stage It was a trip back in time
