This book has all kind of essays from funny moms, some of which I recognize because I’ve been to their website or read their blog.

Warning about the essay titled Bad Thai-ming by Ciaran Blumenfeld – it’s gross. DO NOT read it while eating, when thinking about eating, while planning to make something to eat or anywhere near food or anywhere near where you have to have a pleasant look on your face (like work or church). Seriously.

Some of the contributors you may know are:

Beth Feldman of, Dawn Meehan of Because I Said So and Liz Gumbinner of Mom 101 – they write great things.

At the start of each story is a small anecdote that came through either a tweet, Facebook, text message or email. These are often hilarious by themselves. The stories are just the right length, no more than 5 pages, most of them even less than that. A fun read.

One of the essays wasn’t that great but the rest were hilarious. Some I identified with, some not but they were pretty much all a good read. Great gift for moms who think they have problems!
