So, upon a recommendation from a friend (who is neither married, or has children), I blindly picked up this book. She was told, from another friend that it was a ?must read?. Well, I am about 1 chapter in and I want to throw it in the fireplace. I know, I know, I need to give it a chance but yikes, it?s pretty depressing. I realize life with a baby is an adjustment, and we are no longer going to having sex on the kitchen island, or jet setting to NYC for the weekend, but according to this book, life is essentially over. I was under the impression that it got better, for us as individuals, for us as a family, and the love just grew larger with family? Yes, I understand that it gets hard, that bringing a baby into the home is a BIG change? but, should I prepare for the worst like this book has me believing or should we toss the book and pave our own path?
Again, only one chapter in?
