Raising children is not easy, so moms and dads need to find a way to laugh at their chaotic lives in order to remain sane. Fortunately, Piatt (Banned Questions About the Bible), a popular author and commentator on contemporary Christianity, has mastered the art of self-deprecating parent humor. Facing their second pregnancy, the author and his wife begin to adjust their lives to welcome a sibling for their toddler son, whose energy wears them out almost daily. While serious about his faith, Piatt is refreshingly irreverent and never attempts to candy-coat the gritty and authentic aspects of life, from sex to arguments with one's spouse to changing diapers and cleaning up vomit. This is not only a memoir of pregnancy, but it is also a splendid guide for parents who may feel at times that their life challenges are insurmountable. The spiritual discourse flows naturally—nothing is forced or artificial. Piatt offers a gracious service by recounting how he and his wife mange to stay somewhat grounded while taking the crazy leap into parenthood for the second time. Regardless of faith background, novice and veteran parents alike will find consolation and a lot of laughs. (Apr.)
