Book Review: The Baby Plan


Book Summary:

Meet the mothers…

Nathalie Kneller: Nathalie’s plan: to announce her pregnancy now that she’s finally made it past twelve weeks! But just as she’s about to deliver (so to speak) the big news to her family, her scene-stealing sister barfs all over the Thanksgiving centerpiece. Yup, Lyndi’s pregnant too, swiping the spotlight once more…  

Lyndi Kneller:  Lyndi’s plan: finally get her life together! She’s got a new apartment, new promotion, new boyfriend. What she didn’t count on—a new baby! She can barely afford her rent, much less a state-of-the-art stroller…

Sophia Nunez: Sophia’s plan: Once she gets her daughter Maisey off to college, she’ll finally be able to enjoy life as make-up artist to one of Hollywood’s biggest stars, and girlfriend to one of rock’s hottest musicians. But after 18 years she discovers the stork is once again on its way…

Now these women are about to jump headlong into the world of modern day pregnancy. It’s a world of over the top gender reveal parties (with tacky cakes and fireworks); where every morsel you eat is scrutinized and discussed; where baby names are crowd-sourced and sonograms are Facebook-shared. And where nothing goes as planned…

My Review:

I truly enjoyed this book. It was so much fun. Nathalie’s biggest pregnancy problem is flatulence. Lyndi’s is that no one wants her to ride her bike in LA traffic. Sophia’s is that her musician boyfriend seems to grow distant as her pregnancy progresses.

This book is about modern day motherhood. When I had my kids in the seventies, it was SO different! Now there’s social media and apps for everything and you get to find out the baby’s gender early on. Then there’s the gender reveal parties. Oh my!

You will truly enjoy this book for both the writing and the wit. I recommend it highly.
