Back when I was a little baby blogger, Scary Mommy was one of my very first bloggy crushes. I had no idea who she was, of course. Back then, anyone who had more than 150 followers was a Hugely Famous Blogger in my book. But she was funny, and real, and always made me feel better about my parenting skills.
That’s probably not a surprise to any of you. Since she’s one of the biggest bloggers around, chances are you read her too. But I like to think I discovered her first.
Now she’s a published author. Or at least, she will be when her book hits the shelves on April 3. And I’m not the least little bit jealous (I’m also a liar).
It’s called Confessions of a Scary Mommy, and you guys? It’s a really good book. A laugh out loud funny kind of book.
Each chapter is kind of like a really long blog post. The book has the same humor and flow as her blog, and covers the topics we’ve come to expect from her. She talks about her obsession with birthday parties, her hatred of those perfect, bikini-clad moms, how completely ridiculous the Mom Club is and how obnoxious everybody else’s kids are (because, let’s face it, they are).
It’s a book that can act as both a really effective form of birth control and a lifesaver for an overwhelmed new mom.
It’s also chock full of confessions straight from the Scary Mommy Confessional. Confessions that will have you nodding along, laughing out loud and shaking your head. You’ll relate to some, judge others, be entertained by all.
What else can I tell you? If you’re a mom, you probably want to read this. If you’re not a mom but think you might like to be one, you really should read this.
And I can give you one. In fact, I can give you an autographed copy of Confessions of a Scary Mommy.
Want it? Then leave me a comment. It’d be awesome if you told me why you’re a scary mommy (or a scary mommy wanna be), but if you’re tired, or stressed, or just don’t have the time to get creative, the sentence “I’d really like to read Confessions of a Scary Mommy” would work.
That’s it. No hoops. No extra entries. Just leave me a comment and I’ll pick a random number. Sound good? Good. I’ll leave this giveaway open until March 3. Now go leave me a comment (with your email address, please).
Disclaimer: Jill gave me a copy of her book, but didn’t ask me to write any sort of review at all. I just liked it and think you’ll like it too. In other words, all thoughts and opinions are my own, ya da ya da ya da.
