Shout! Shout! Knock Yourself Out!!
As a kid, my dad was a huge fan of Do Woop from the 1960s from growing up listening to that type of music. I heard so many different songs from this time, because of him. One of them was titled the first line by a singer known as Ernie Maresca. I was a kid and this title really only made me want to dance.
But many years later that was not the first thought when I heard it again. And now even though I am not a kid and now indeed a parent, who should be composed and not lose my cool, honestly that is so not the case. And that first line is exactly how I really would love to react and yes I have a few times over the last few years being the mother to two little girls only 16 months apart.
Let’s face it even in the best of moments kids can try the patience out of even a saint. Granted, I am not a saint, not close, even by a long shot, just a stay at home mom who has had her fair share of crazy moments to last a lifetime.
Well, as luck would have it, I was approached by a good writer friend of mine about contributing to a new book to be released this fall all about mommy meltdowns and I was truly intrigued.
The more I heard about it, the more I knew I needed to be a part of this and had at least one story to share of my own mommy meltdowns.
So, I thought it was high time that I shared that I will indeed be featured alongside 29 other fabulous bloggers sharing about our less then perfect mommy meltdown moments in a new tell-all book, named The Mother of All Meltdowns.
If you are a mom, grandmother or even a caretaker, trust me you do not want to miss this one and think you will feel right at home with our guilty confessions.
I was lucky enough being a part of this and to read an advanced copy. Let me tell you, we have it covered from every angle and you will not be disappointed in having your own copy to read. I am not just saying this, because I am a part of it, because there really are so many other talented writers who divulge their tales here that it is a must read and don’t think you will want to put it down once you start reading it.
And here now is a sneak peek at the cover:
And if you still aren’t convinced we have had some great press and reviews so far, including the lovely Dose Girls, who had this to say:
Do you ever find yourself wondering if you are the only one who doesn’t react to all situations like June Cleaver? Are there days as a mother where you wish *you* could throw yourself to the ground and have a toddler-style tantrum because you.just.can’t.take.it.anymore
? Well, so have the 30 hilarious bloggers of “The Mother of All Meltdowns”! These ladies tell it like it is.
Gone bonkers because your child didn’t appreciate the expensive, theme park vacation you booked to make their childhood complete?
Lost your cool because your child decided to play barbershop using her own head?
Yep, they have been there.
Ever punish your child for not eating the lunch you accidentally forgot to make him?
They feel your pain.
We could not have enjoyed “The Mother of All Meltdowns” more…partly because we laughed so hard while reading, we could legitimately skip our ab workout for the week! Score! Every mom reading will come away feeling like she has 30 new girlfriends who just “get it”! All moms deserve the laughter and validation “The Mother of All Meltdowns” delivers!
