Congratulations to commenter #39 Diana!!
There is this Mom Problem.
The one where we all think someone else is doing it better.
The mom next door has a perfect eye for fashion.
The one in front of you at pre-school pick up just finished a two hour work out at the gym and now has an afternoon of creative crafts with the kids planned.
The one next to you in line did not have to bribe her children to stand still and use their manners.
We all seem to think that someone else is doing a better job than we are.
Every mom MUST READ this book.
Jill talks about the good, the bad and the really ugly of motherhood and makes us all feel human.
Because the truth is?
The only reason your neighbor’s adorable shirt is pink is because she washed a load of whites with a brand new read sweatshirt.
The mom in front of you in the pre-school pick up line has been sitting there since drop off, catching up on Facebook, in her workout clothes.
And that one whose kids are standing still in line, they are wearing kid leashes under their jackets and were promised an hour of video games when they get home.
We are all human and just doing the best we can.
So I am completely thrilled to be giving away a signed, hardcover copy of Confessions of a Scary Mommy to one of my readers because seriously, I needed to read this book.
And so do you.
-Leave a comment telling me something you’ve done that might leave you out of the running for Mom of the Year (maybe you forgot snack day, or forgot a favorite blankie at the mall, or forgot your kid at the mall) whatever makes you feel like someone else is doing this whole mom thing better.
-Make another commenter feel better. Let them know whatever they’ve done it’s not that bad. If they feel terrible for failing at homemade dinners tell them that Chef Boyardee is your best friend. The more commenters you make feel better the more entries you receive. Make sense?
Let’s all support each other in this mom gig, every day is not sunshine and roses. Unless you are Scary Mommy right now, because you just unveiled one of the best books a mom could ever read.
Confessions of a Scary Mommy by Jill Smokler is available here. I was given a copy to review for purposes of this giveaway. All opinions are my own.
