There comes a time in every new mother's life when she finds herself staring at her screaming, smelly "bundle of joy" and wishing someone had told her that her house would reek of vomit, or that she shouldn't buy the cute onesies with a thousand impossible buttons, or that she might cry more than the baby.

Best-selling author Dawn Dais, mother of two tiny terrors, is convinced that there is a reason for this lack of preparedness. She believes that a vast conspiracy exists to hide the horrific truth about parenting from doe-eyed expectant mothers who might otherwise abandon their babies in hospitals and run for it. Eschewing the adorableness that oozes out of other parenting books, Dais offers real advice from real moms-along with hilarious anecdotes, clever tips, and the genuine encouragement every mom needs in order to survive the first year of parenthood.

Revised and updated with several new chapters, including new advice for single moms, tips on what to do when you inevitable mess up, and a reassuring update on Dais' own family (it really does get easier, it turns out). The Sh!t No One Tells You is a must-have companion for every new mother's sleepless nights and poop-filled days. In this new and revised edition, Dais brings her trademark brand of no-nonsense parenting advice up to the present.
