The sh!t no one tells you about baby #2 : a guide to surviving your growing family / Dawn Dais.

Dais, Dawn. (Author).



Around the time your first baby turns a year old your brain will turn on you. For some unknown reason, the struggles you dealt with when bringing home your first baby will start to fade away in your memory and will be replaced with images of your growing child who is sleeping well and becoming more independent by the day. And then out of nowhere, your brain, because it has officially lost all regard for your well-being, will start triggering thoughts of a second baby. And for the first time since becoming a parent these thoughts dont make you break out in hives. Before you know it, you are dressing your first child in Im Going to be a Big Sister!" t-shirts and imagining future family dinners with all of your children and grandchildren gathered around eating, drinking and being merry. This will be fantastic! But then that familiar morning sickness kicks in. Your adorable 18 month-old transforms into a two-year-old terror. And those hives start to return. The Sh!t No One Tells You About Surviving Baby #2, the third book in Dawn Dais's popular Sh!t No One Tells You series, covers all a parent needs to know to once the reality of having two young children settles in. With Dawn's trademark witty chapter topics such as "Baby #2: You Got This. Don't Let Them See Your Fear" and "Ying Just Met Its Yang: It's Scientifically Impossible for Kids to Be Happy at the Same Time", this relatable, helpful guide will keep parents smilingor grinning and bearing it through raising a second child.
