If you’ve been pregnant at any time during your life, I’m sure you’ve at least thumbed through a copy of “What to Expect When You’re Expecting” by Heidi Murkoff. This book was one of the very first gifts I received when I found out I was expecting my first child, Tyler. I read it cover to cover – some sections more than once. It became my pregnancy bible.
When I found out I was expecting my second child, Mindy, I immediately picked up my rather worn copy and thumbed through it again to refresh my memory. Because we all know amnesia sets in prior to the second child’s arrival and then we are suddenly reminded of all the pleasantries – and not so pleasant – experiences that come along with pregnancy and impending labor.
And while I’m somewhat sure our family of five is complete now that Jake has joined us, my pregnancy bible still sits on my bookshelf today. I’m not sure I’ll ever part with it but rather pass it along to my daughter once she is expecting her first child.
So expect my delight when I heard a movie had come out with an all star cast based on this best seller! And what’s even more exciting is that I was given the opportunity to get the inside scoop on the cast and their characters in the movie.
And I have to say, Elizabeth Banks has to be one of the funniest women today – a true natural talent. Her character already has me in stitches. And let’s not forget the dads in the movie – too funny.
