The Book

Yep, it’s true – I’m in a book! And it’s even a REAL book. Not one made by my children with pictures that I have to say are princesses when they really look like poop balls. Nope, a real published book.

It’s called The Mother of All Meltdowns and is an anthology of thirty stories in which we share our best, worst, saddest, and funniest mommy meltdowns. You’ll get to see the crazy, insane, maniacal side of motherhood through our own words. It’s a hilarious book of moments that we usually only share with our friends over cocktails…

And the good news is that it is now available to purchase! I’ve been waiting and waiting to announce that and now the day is finally here. You can purchase it through Amazon in paperback or Kindle.

To give you a little teaser, here’s an excerpt from my chapter:

So when the picture on the stick showed a positive sign, I did what every freaked out girl does – I took out the second, third and fourth test and took them all at the same time.  Then, I did something that most freaked out girls don’t do.  I drove directly to the OBGYN’s office. Yes, I drove right there without even an appointment.  I walked up to the receptionist and said, “Uhmmm…I’d like a blood test because these say positive and there’s no way that can be right.” 

Then, I did the grossest thing you can imagine.  I dropped my pee sticks on her desk.  Yep, dropped them right there for her to see.  Yes, the caps were on them, but I’m not sure that really makes it less gross.

She stayed very calm, looked down at the sticks, and said, “You’re pregnant, now would you please remove those from my desk?”  

Want to find out what happens next? Well… you’ll have to buy the book!
