About the Author:

Julie Vick, a lifelong introvert, is a parent of two young children. Her writing has appeared in The New YorkerMcSweeney’sParents, and elsewhere. An English instructor at the University of Colorado Denver, Vick lives near Boulder, Colorado.

About the Book:

A baby can be a good excuse to skip a party, but . . . goodbye alone time, hello awkward new social obligations.

All parents want the same things: to balance work and home life, to raise happy kids, to never attend a baby drumming class, and to build a secret room in their home where they can hide (preferably not the bathroom). Yes, an introverted parent would more keenly want to be free of the slew of attention and expectations that accompany both pregnancy and parenthood, but even the most outgoing person is sure to reach their limit eventually. Here, with laugh-out-loud humor and well-earned experience, Julie Vick offers coping mechanisms for everything from sharing the news that you are becoming a parent to the moment the baby is born (one way or another, it will happen), from managing doctor’s visits to handling playdates. She offers advice on finding childcare and ignoring the nursing versus formula conversation with strangers. Witty yet valuable, her tips, checklists, and the occasional chart focus on the time from pregnancy through preschool.
