First Time Lizard Mom
What to expect when you’re expecting… a journey through a Cow Tipping book? I don’t know where to begin, but First Time Lizard Mom is as good a start as any. The stories and poetry in this collection run the gamut of the neurodivergent—and the human—experience: from paeans of self-advocacy (“Seeing My Grandma Again,” “Calling All Self Advocates”) to laughing at one’s own expense (“The Stuck Wheel Chair”); from treatises on drunk crows (“Drunk Crows”) to artificial intelligence (“Computer Micro Chip”), from honest, brutal recollections (“Depression is a Prison”) to naked affirmations of life itself (“Yes We Can”). Long after you’ve put it down, this collection will linger in your mind like the scent of a dog who’s wont “to roll on dead fish” (“Must Have Dog [Dog Wanted]”). After all—you never forget your first.
