Today is a great day!
I get to give away one of the funniest books ever written about surviving (because let’s be honest…it is like Survivor) parenting ever written – “Parenting: Illustrated With Crappy Pictures” by Amber Dusick.
I’ll explain why this gets me excited.
First, I’ve been following Crappy Pictures (which is Amber’s blog) for about a year now.
It started because someone shared her post about Target on Facebook. And it made me giggle.
And then a month later her blog post about wine and coffee was shared (on Facebook) and I went from just giggling to realizing that we would be BFF in real life.
It is rare for me to laugh out loud at online things. I think it is because I’m online all day and I’m jaded. But nine times out of ten, I’m snickering, laughing, or spitting out my coffee/wine (depends on the time of day) after reading one of her entries.
So when, Harlequin contacted me about reviewing her book and giving one away – I jumped at the chance.
Parenting: Illustrated with Crappy Pictures is a collection of some of the “best of” from her blog, but with lots and lots of new material about parenting, being a wife, being a mom, and trying to still feel like a women.
She tells it like it is. She swears. Her life is far from perfect and she doesn’t claim to have all the answers – but she loves her kids, her man, their cats and their new dog. And that is someone I can completely relate to.
Seriously, this is an awesome book for any new mom as a baby shower gift or experienced mom who needs a good laugh.
PS: On a side note, Hubs saw the “Big Red Book” laying around and decided to read it. I haven’t heard him laugh this much since he read “Sh*t My Dad Says“. So evidently, men get it too.
And if that isn’t enough…this picture should. #justsayin
