Dear Baby: I'm Sorry...: Apologies for Life's Little Parenting Fails - Book Review

I received book for review.  The opinions within this post are of my own and I was not influenced in any way.  Please do your own research before purchasing products or using services.  Your opinions and results may differ.
 
Dear Baby: I’m Sorry is the perfect compilation of all those parenting moments we should apologize for. Probably.

Dear Baby:

Sorry that half of your calories today came from dust bunnies.

Sorry I refer to your morning nap as my first victory of the day.

Sorry I put you to bed knowing full well you had avocado in your hair.

Sorry I timed how long it was after you woke up before you cried about nothing. It was fifty-seven seconds. Try harder.

Dear Baby: I’m Sorry captures the comical, everyday mishaps of parenting—and the poor kids who have to put up with us.
Parenting is hard; That's all there is to it.  There's days when we just don't know quite how we're going to make it through, or if we're even doing it right at all. 
 
I've given birth to three children and my first child, bless her heart, was the one who had to deal with all the stress and strictness.  I made sure I bought the right things and did all the right things.  I didn't want to be a parental failure.  When the two boys came along, I was a lot more lax.  I learned that parenting doesn't have to be all serious, all the time.
 
Dear Baby: I'm Sorry is a photographic collection of babies and all the things that we, as parents, are sorry for.  Looking through it made me laugh and even reminisce about the things I probably should have been sorry about when my kids were wee ones.  The book is a reminder that parenting is as lighthearted as it is serious.  Dear Baby: I'm Sorry would be a particularly playful gift to give on Mother's Day or for new mothers. 
 
Dear Baby: I'm Sorry...: Apologies for Life's Little Parenting Fails, written by Sarah Showfety, will be released April 5th, 2016.
