If you can't laugh, you'll likely cry. When it comes to being a mom, there are days when the laundry pile is too high, the kids too whiney and the days too long. Motherhood isn't for the weak and we've found a book that puts a fun spin on the trenches of parenting--Sh*tty Mom (for the follow up book, check out this Shtty Mom review).
There have been many moments where I thought I was losing it and a good laugh was just what I needed to salvage an otherwise disastrous day of parenting. This new book celebrates the less than shining episodes of being a mom. Last night I toasted two of the authors, Mary Ann and Alicia at the Diva Moms Book Launch Party. The dynamic duo can be found most days working on TodaysMoms.com, this project highlighted their irreverent side...and I love it! They are definitely some of my Mom Boss inspirations!
I just love celebrating other authors - especially women who are taking motherhood head on.
Co-written by Laurie Kilmartin (an Emmy-nominated writer for CONAN)and Karen Moline, this book will have you in stitches. You'll get helpful tips on how to crash a bouncy castle b-day party and how to successfully navigate a conference call from home (bribery is involved). Grab a glass of wine and enjoy-- it's the antidote to a rough day on the front lines. And for more Sh*tty Mom fun check out the site http://shttymom.com/
While there are many ways to deal with stress (like meditation), here at Momtrends we think a good book and a good laugh are important. Tell us, what are you reading that makes you laugh?
Momtrends was not paid for this post. We did get a goody bag at the Diva Moms Shtty Mom event.
