In the tradition of Ali Wong and Amy Schumer comes this whip-smart, spit-out-your-coffee funny guide for new parents–from popular blogger and columnist Jenny True.

Typically, “new parent” guides address the biggest challenges from pregnancy to the first few years of parenthood: breastfeeding, bonding, sleep, and getting back in shape. But nowhere is a guide that tells you, What do I say when some jerk asks if I’m pregnant and I had the baby last year?

That’s where Romper advice columnist and award-winning writer Jenny Pritchett (aka Jenny True) comes in: You Look Tired is a smart, inclusive, tell-it-like-it-is guide for new moms who don’t want any more advice. Writing as Jenny True on her “Excruciatingly Personal Mommy Blog,” she has provided what her readers crave: the relief and laughter that come with validation and, most importantly, connection. Her columns are a mix of humor, rage, disbelief, and encouragement (with a smidgeon of practical advice), and her thousands of fans have called her, “funny,” “miserable,” and a “postpartum feelings doula.” Here she covers such burning topics as:
  • Birth Hurts: Prenatal yoga is a waste of time.
  • Parental Leave: Fantasy vs. reality
  • Jabbat the Hutt Was Just Postpartum: It explains so much.
  • You Want to Have Sex with This?: Partners need to chill.
  • Who Am I Anymore?: Having kids puts your identity in the juicer.
  • An Open Letter to People Who Say, “Looks like you have your hands full!”
And much more!
