Strollerderby has brought our attention to Pregnant Paper Dolls, a book of paper dolls showing a mom moving through the various stages of pregnancy (skinny, heels-wearing non-Mom to rounder, hip New Mom) but laments that it isn't aspirational enough. It is too realistic, apparently (even down to the pregnant bride?) and that makes mommies sad because they want to believe that they will snap back to their normal body weight and cocktail dress-wearing lifestyle after they give birth to a child. Uh, wouldn't it be better to not give new moms unrealistic expectations, especially when dealing with gag-worthy gifts? [Strollerderby]
