Baby Beatitudes : A Pacifier for New and Expectant Parents
Baby love takes your breath away. Yet a new baby can send a family on a roller coaster ride of emotions. How can a creature so small bring such joy and such exhaustion at the same time? Amid all the challenges parenthood brings, BABY BEATITUDES offers comfort, encouragement and humour to the participants in a baby's life-mothers, fathers, siblings, aunts, uncles, cousins, and grandparents. Blessed are those babies who arrive on schedule, for they give you your last moment of ever being on time to anything. Blessed are the mothers who make mistakes, for they will learn to forgive their own mothers. Blessed is the father who changes dirty nappies, for he will learn that men can do what women do. Almost. Blessed is the mummy who organizes a playgroup, for she shall be called Chosen among all mummies. New parents will smile in recognition at the truth and wit collected in this keepsake. Original art warmly illustrates these tender reflections, making BABY BEATITUDES a book to cherish.
