Steve Cummins is the father of two strong, beautiful boys, one of whom came as a bigger shock than George W getting elected to a second term while the other was more planned than Stalin's first five years in power. One was an emergency caesarean while the other was pushed out in a shower of urine and expletives (mostly from the author - not his wife!). Steve is a professional comedian which has had the added benefits of him having taken care of his boys since his wife finished maternity leave since he works mostly at night (Yes,he is a yummy mummy!).
This book is a seriously funny take on pregnancy and childbirth but, don't worry, you will also learn lots and have a laugh while doing so. Pregnancy and babies are an amazing experience and a huge challenge at the same time. You are about to be given an incredible gift, one you will love in a way you heretofore never thought possible. You are also going to feel left out, alienated, confused, terrified and grossed out. Horny too, but what else is new. While everyone accepts and makes allowances for the mother, no one ever thinks of the father. This is a book for men. By all means read her the odd excerpt (Steve even put in a few paragraphs that keep her sweet for this very reason) but for the love of God don't let her get her hands on it!
