Short Synopsis
From the author of The Nonrunner's Marathon Guide for Women comes the honest—and sometimes smelly—truth of being a new parent.

Full Synopsis
There comes a time in every new mother's life when she finds herself staring at her screaming, smelly "bundle of joy" and wishing someone had told her that her house would reek of vomit, or that she shouldn't buy the cute onesies with a thousand impossible buttons, or that she might cry more than the baby.

Bestselling humor author Dawn Dais is convinced that there is a reason for this lack of preparedness. She believes that a vast conspiracy exists to hide the horrific truth about parenting from doe-eyed expectant mothers who might otherwise abandon their babies in hospitals and run for it. In The Sh!t No One Tells You, Dais reveals what it's really like to be a new parent and provides helpful insights, humor, and hope for those who feel overwhelmed by the exhausting trials they're suddenly facing. Dais offers real advice from real moms—along with hilarious anecdotes, clever tips, and the genuine encouragement every mom needs in order to survive the first year of parenthood.

"An amusing and accurate examination of life with an infant." ---Kirkus

"With heartfelt encouragement and insight, Dawn Dais is a must-read for first-time moms."
---Rebecca Woolf, author of Rockabye
