Review | It Sucked and Then I Cried

Heather Armstrong will present It Sucked and Then I Cried at TKE on Wednesday, April 15, at 7 p.m.

From the beloved creator of Dooce.com–the most popular personal blog on the Internet–comes an irreverent and captivating parenting memoir covering the joys and indignities of pregnancy, childbirth, and all the unexpected things that happen when expecting. Simultaneously heartbreaking and hilarious, Armstrong’s chronicle of pregnancy, post-partum depression and recovery had me laughing and crying all night. Her trademark wit, which readers of her blog know and love, is present in full force and she leaves nothing (NOTHING!) to the imagination. Every detail, from Dorito binges to the trials and tribulations of dining with infants, is fully rendered and will be instantly familiar to mothers worldwide. But fun and games aside, what will stay with me the most is Armstrong’s incredible love for her husband, family, and new daughter. It Sucked is the best kind of ode to motherhood — unflinchingly complete with gory details but filled with joy.
