Bad Mother

Ayelet Waldman has written about the guilt women flog themselves and other mothers with. We stay at home. We go to work. We do scrapbooks for baby one. We have two snapshots of the last child. Etc.

The Bad Mother is a funny and poingnant book in turns. It is evident upon finishing though that I am not being nearly unkind enough to myself and perhaps Waldman needs to be kinder to herself.
