Overview

When does 1 + 1 = 3 (or more)? When you've got a baby on the way.

Part of that new math, says #1 New York Times bestselling author Jill Conner Browne--whom USA TODAY calls "just plain funny"--includes the addition of an outsize sense of humor to balance the equation of your growing family.

The Sweet Potato Queens' Guide to Raising Children for Fun and Profit is a hilarious (though not scientifically tested) wink at the time-honored mysteries of parenting, because anybody who has ever had a kid or has ever known one knows that the experience is neither fun nor profitable--so you might as well laugh

As each generation begins its hopeful, happy, and, yes, sometimes harrowing journey as Parent and Child, together they spawn a new body of "knowledge," the nuances of which will elude the Experts every time. Here are stories of the things we do for Mother Love--or, the most incredibly full-time volunteer job ever--and tips guaranteed not to be found in any other parenting guide.

-How to talk to a pregnant woman
-How the diamonds on delivery policy can speed up the labor nature intended
-Why a good mother is always adept at subterfuge
-The list of things you wouldn't think you would have to tell kids not to do
-Why mothers of sons can never retire
-Why, for parents, it's just a short drive to the poorhouse

The Sweet Potato Queens' Guide to Raising Children for Fun and Profit will have everyone who's ever been a parent--or has ever thought of becoming one--or has ever been a child--or is still one--giggling and grinning (no small feat) through those childbearing years...and beyond.
