Are you a new mom or an experienced mom? Or may be an expecting mom or planning to conceive? I would say read this book – bringing up Vasu by Parul Sharma!!
It is fun and totally true!! It has everything, a super worried first time mom who dreams of becoming a super mom, a harried dad, a colicky baby, an entertaining grandmother, vanishing nannies, an irritating neighbour, a competitive friend, a few real friends, fashionable names, entertaining letters written by mom to the baby and a happy ending!! Oh wait!! It also has some bollywood tadka!! This book is completely fun!!
When I read it, I revisit the good (?!) old days of Zini’s first year!! The days when I would jump at any noise during Zini’s nap time, when she would become all colicky through night and sleep through day, when I ate with Zini on my lap, when I worried about her school admission, all of it!! And all these is written in the funniest possible way!! So if you have raised a baby, you would feel that it’s your story!!
This book gives a complete insight in what’s going on in the new mom’s mind!! And anybody who wants to understand a new mom, must read this!! And the best thing about the book is that you can re-read it!! It remains equally funny every time you read it!!
