Meh. The motherhood as culture shock concept would probably be best explored in a magazine article, and I've just read so many awesome thinking-mom books and pieces lately (Waiting for Birdy and Brain, Child Magazine, GO) that you've got to be both really insightful (it's true that you are only allowed to say good things about momming it, but if you're going to say some bad ones, make them more interesting, please) and really readable (this is kind of Parents-caliber prose) to compete. Bad timing for Ms. Buchanan.
