My Baby Boomer Baby Book
My Baby Boomer Baby Book, (Workman Publishing) is a best-selling parody of a baby book and a satire of middle age. Like the baby book in which your mother recorded your every physical and intellectual accomplishment, this book celebrates the memorable firsts of middle age – pot bellies, liver spots, and bed time rituals (no fluids after 6 PM).
Praise for My Baby Boomer Baby Book:
Middle age goes by so fast. How wonderful of Mary-Lou Weisman to provide a record book of our estrogen years so that we can relive every moment of our meltdowns . . . . A great gift for middle-agers and those in denial.
