What to Expect Giveaway

I don’t know about you, but when I was pregnant and even during my twins’ first couple of years, I scoured parenting books like a frat dude scours a singles bar late at night.  Since I certainly didn’t know what the hell I was doing, I turned to the “experts” to see just what I should and shouldn’t be doing.  And trust me, I spent a small fortune at Barnes & Noble on pretty much every single pregnancy and family book I could find.  But the one book I always found myself consulting the most was the What to Expect series.

Lord knows NONE of us really knows what to expect when it comes to kids and the crazy things they do, but these books at least provide some kind of place where you can turn when you can’t figure out why on earth Johnny Jr. won’t stop crying his head off at 3 A.M.  It’s just nice to know that a legitimate source of help is sitting right there on your bookshelf.

So why am I telling you about a book series that you probably already have memorized?  Well, the great people at What to Expect have teamed up with me to do a giveaway of either their What to Expect When You’re Expecting or their What to Expect: The Second Year book.  Now maybe your kids are all grown up (you lucky dog, you), and you feel that you no longer need these books anymore.  Well, hello!  We all know someone who’s about ready to pop out a baby and/or someone who’s about to pull his/her hair out with a toddler!  Perfect gift alert here, people!

All you have to do to enter the contest is:

1.  Follow @What_To_Expect and @nuckingfutsmama on Twitter.

2.  “Like” my Facebook page by clicking on this link & hitting “Like”:  http://www.facebook.com/pages/Nucking-Futs-Mama/112159232183564

3.  Leave a comment below telling me that you’ve completed the above requests.

I’ll be randomly selecting SIX people to receive a free book of his/her choice.  AND, in addition, ONE of the SIX will also receive a $25 iTunes card! Deadline to enter the contest is Friday, June 10 at 8 PM EST.  Piece of cake process to get something for free, don’t ya think?

    OK. I sooo do not need any of these books, but I thought I would give my pitch for them too. I still won’t give my first year and toddler book away because I love their medical resource pages at the end when you cannot figure out what your child has– pink eye or croup or whatever…
    Please do not put me in the giveaway drawing.
    Thanks, J! LW
