I’m sure that all of you know who Eden and Alice are but if not, well, you’re truly missing out. Not only are they brilliant writers and hilariously funny, they are really nice people. I first met Eden on a trip to California two years ago and finally met Alice this past August in New York and, yep. Good people.

These two lovely ladies joined forces a little while back and created a site called, “Let’s Panic About Babies!” If you have kids or want kids or just have a sense of humor, you’ll love their site (if you don’t already). Why am I telling you about Eden and Alice and Let’s Panic?

Because they wrote a book! Titled…wait for it…LET’S PANIC ABOUT BABIES. True Story.

They had me at the laser beams, but then Alice’s hubby Scott went ahead and created this amazing book trailer. Go ahead and watch it. I’ll wait.

Why am I sharing all of this with you today? Because the book launches today! And you can buy it! True story.

I’m telling you to buy it because I am one of the lucky ones who got a copy so that I could review it. I KNOW. I am here to tell you that it’s as funny as you might hope. I’m also here to tell you that they’ve given me a book to give away to one of you. (How sweet are they?)(SO sweet.)

So! Here are the details: The giveaway is open to anyone residing in Canada or the U.S. I’ll leave comments open until sometime on Friday, March 4th, 2011.

All you need to do is leave me a comment and tell me why you want to win the book. Ready, set, go!

***

I pulled up Random.org, entered the number 1 to 34 and…

YAY HILLARY! I’ll be making sure you get your book before your baby arrives. :)

  4. Tamara March 1, 2011 11:20 am edit

    I want to win because I am 6 months preggo with our 2nd child and could use a good baby read.

  5. K March 1, 2011 11:28 am edit

    I definitely plan to have children someday. This book looks like it would be awesome to prepare me for such things. :)

  6. Procrastamom March 1, 2011 11:34 am edit

    I also love Eden and Alice, so for that reason I want to win. Also, I am 232 months post-partum with my first baby and I need to know if I went wrong somewhere. For instance, there were no Bumbo chairs when she was an infant. Will her spine be less spiney than a baby born today? I need answers!

  7. Carla March 1, 2011 11:38 am edit

    I have two young kids and I’m always up for another good parenting read.

  8. Carmen March 1, 2011 12:04 pm edit

    If the book is half as funny as the website, it will still be hilarious. I’d love to win the book so that I can give it to one of my friends who is currently pregnant. She’s been trying to conceive for over 6 years and I cried when she told me that she was pregnant. She’s got an amazing sense of humour and she’ll LOVE the book.

    PICK ME! PICK ME!!

  10. hillary March 1, 2011 1:21 pm edit

    I want to win because I am currently panicking about babies. Big time.

  11. ChrisB March 1, 2011 2:49 pm edit

    Not that I am in the market for babies, but this would make a great gift for one of my bestest friends who just had her first!

  12. souphead March 1, 2011 2:53 pm edit

    i want to win the book because i’m dying to read it and i’m 5+ months pregnant and totally panicking about babies! and i’m totally broke…even tho i was tempted to skip lunch when i saw the Amazon price today, but again pregnant…can’t skip meals.

  13. Brittany March 1, 2011 3:04 pm edit

    We aren’t taking precautions right now, so we could be hit with a frightening little bundle of baby at any moment! AAAAHHHH!!!!!!

  14. Amanda Brown March 1, 2011 3:24 pm edit

    I want the book because Alice is one of the best writers out there. And Eden, too. They are so freaking FUNNY!

  15. JoL March 1, 2011 3:52 pm edit

    wow – you had me at the laser beams!

    seriously, hubs & I have been debating the baby thing for almost a year now (OK – I keep bringing it up and he keeps saying “I wouldn’t mind an accident, but I don’t want to plan one” hello! I am running out of time over here!)
    so this might be a good eye-opener….

  16. Sarah March 1, 2011 5:17 pm edit

    I think I need that book because if Vahid and I had kids? HOW CUTE WOULD THEY BE?!

    Not that we planning kids or anything…well not in the near future at least. ;)

  17. Jess - daysgoby March 1, 2011 5:52 pm edit

    I want to win because Eden and Alice are just goddamn awesome separately. Together, they become chili fries. (Or something else fantastic, slightly greasy and ummy-good.)

  18. Patty Rosebush March 1, 2011 9:03 pm edit

    I want this book. I have two teenage sons and I know this book will put some of these past 18 years into perspective!

  19. Kerri Anne March 1, 2011 9:15 pm edit

    Hmm, I would like to win this book because I someday plan to learn to read and…wait, wrong contest entry response.

    I want to panic about babies, too!

  20. Allison March 1, 2011 9:16 pm edit

    This would be a book that would give me a much needed chuckle. My baby is 10 months and is already a tyrant.

  21. Amanda G. March 1, 2011 10:02 pm edit

    My husband and I are trying to start a family. I know this book will come in very handy for us when our dream becomes a reality! :)

  22. Ashley March 1, 2011 10:56 pm edit

    This book looks incredibly fantastic!! I would love to win because it seems like it could be super exciting and could help to lighten my load admist 5 children 5 and under. I could use a good laugh.

  23. edmontonjb March 2, 2011 12:36 am edit

    I would like to win because this sounds like such a fun take on baby books.

  24. jenn March 2, 2011 7:45 am edit

    hilarious!

  25. Karmyn March 2, 2011 8:43 am edit

    I want to win because:
    1) I like to laugh…a lot
    2) I like babies
    3) I am planning on having my own in the near future and sense that some comic relief will be necessary.

  26. Sherry March 2, 2011 10:32 am edit

    I’d like to win because although I’m past the panic about babies stage (gearing up for panic about tweens though), my sister is due with her first baby in April. She’s already dealt with so much alarmist stuff thrown at her that I think she would appreciate this book’s humor tremendously and it would make a great gift for her.

  27. Victoria March 2, 2011 11:29 am edit

    Because I’d like a good laugh :)

  28. Milissa March 2, 2011 2:50 pm edit

    I can’t wait to read the book! My husband and I are considering having a baby soon…AND THAT MAKES ME PANIC! Hopefully, I can learn some interesting tips from the book .

  29. Heather March 2, 2011 3:31 pm edit

    As you know, I am getting married. As you may know, I am getting old, but am still young and shouldn’t worry. But I do. About having babies. How soon I ‘need’ to have babies. How long we should wait before we have babies. If we can have babies. And finally, how these babies will totally disrupt our lives and ohmygood will I make it through? I. am. scared. But I’m made to be a mom. I’ve known it as long as I can remember. It’s what I want, but I’m scared. So, I really need to laugh. Please send me the book :)

  30. Katie March 3, 2011 11:07 am edit

    Just found out my awesome friend is pregnant so this would be perfect for her!

  31. Leslie March 3, 2011 11:07 am edit

    I’ve been reading their site for ages in preparation for my new baby, and would LOVE to have the book!!

  32. Melissa March 3, 2011 2:04 pm edit

    Weeellll…I ‘d like to win because I’m almost 10 weeks pregnant (shhh..don’t tell anyone!) and I’ve done nothing but panic since my pregnancy was confirmed. I could totally use some good laughs and hopefully learn some neat things too!

  33. Mama in the City March 3, 2011 2:04 pm edit

    I’d love to read this book and find out what hilarity there is~

  34. amanda March 3, 2011 6:43 pm edit

    So need to get a copy of this for my sister-in-law…who, wait for it…will have a 22 year old (as of yesterday) and a new born by May! Both of which are her’s!!
