Dispatches From the Seamy Underbelly of Modern ParentingBook - 2015
New Yorker cartoonist Emily Flake relates the hilarious horrors of pregnancy, birth, and early parenting in this funny, poignant, and beautifully illustrated book.
For most people, having a child doesn't go exactly as planned. Not many are willing to admit that not only did they dislike the early days of parenting, they sometimes hated it. MAMA TRIED is a relatable collection of cartoons and essays pertaining to the good, bad, and (very) ugly parenting experiences we all face. Subjects range from "are you ready for children?" to "baby gear class-warfare." With incredible honesty, Flake tackles everything from morning sickness to sleep training, shedding much needed light on the gnarly realities of breastfeeding, child proofing, mommy groups, and every unrealistic expectation in between. MAMA TRIED will be an indispensable companion for sleepless parents and a fond reminder for those already out of the woods.

"The first time she slept longer than three hours in a row, I half-woke up during hour four thinking "Oh God. She's dead." And then the not-awake half went 'Well, if she is dead, waking up now won't make her any less dead, so just go back to sleep.' And that woke me up for real, because... I'm a monster."
