About this product
- DescriptionThirty-six-year-old Annie Schwartz-Jensen is a middle school teacher on maternity leave - a time she imagined as uninterrupted, blissful bonding with her baby. Instead she is dealing with her body leaking from every possible orifice, a baby who won't sleep, a husband who still wants to have sex with her (is he nuts??), single friends who are clueless, and a mother who picked w to take a vacation. The only people who REALLY understand Annie are the wonderful people she spends sleepless nights with on QVC: Keep those velveteen table runners and n-jiggle stretch pants coming! As Annie navigates life with her new baby, she realises that t all Mummies are created equal. But she is determined to find her way, love her baby, her husband, herself - even if she has to wear nipple protectors for the rest of her child-bearing life.
