And Baby Makes Two By Dyan Sheldon. | eBayAmerica's cultural debate about motherhood rages on. As this documentary about single mothers proves -- specifically about women who choose to be single mothers -- the promises and perils of the biological clock are resonating more loudly than ever with some women in today's society. And Baby Makes Two follows eight women who made a decision to become mothers without waiting for the perfect mate. The reason is usually the booming ticking sound of that biological clock as women in their late 30s and early 40s try to make it across the babygate finish line before it's too late. The women pictured here live independent lives, down to making their own two-person family with their baby. And Baby Makes Two offers an interesting parallel to the recent spate of books about motherhood myths.
And Baby Makes Two
This mildly light hearted yet extremely realistic and hard hitting books is one of my favorites. Dyan Sheldon has a way of connecting with her audience and really being able to describe a teenage mind and life. This book is about a fifteen year old girl, Lana, who makes some seriously bad decisions and ends up going through a much deserved hard time. One thing I have noticed with YA books is that most of them show parents as uncaring, distant, busy or just in general misunderstanding whereas they show teenagers to be smarter, deeper, and more mature than they should be. She blames her mother for pretty much everything from her bad grades to global warming. On her fifteenth birthday Lana excitedly puts on a bunch of makeup and wears a very revealing and skanky dress that her mother refuses to let her wear which leads to a huge quarrel between the two. The two date for a while and she quickly decides now that she has met the perfect man there is no need for her to bother with school where she was failing anyway and it was time to take her relationship to the next level.
