"Making a decision to have a child - it's momentous. It is to decide forever to have your heart go walking around outside your body"

- writer Elizabeth Stone

What happened when the Girls Who Had It All became mothers? A new book explores why this generation feels so insane

First Paragraph:
"Feb. 21 issue - Back in the days when I was a Good Mommy, I tried to do everything right. I breast-fed and co-slept, and responded to each and every cry with anxious alacrity. I awoke with my daughter at 6:30 AM and, eschewing TV, curled up on the couch with a stack of books that I could recite in my sleep. I did this, in fact, many times, jerking myself back awake as the clock rounded 6:45 and the words of Curious George started to merge with my dreams."
