One of the most popular mommy-bloggers, Dawn Meehan offers readers a hilarious journey along with her six kids on madcap adventures, underscoring the notion that a sense of humor is an essential parenting skill. Poignant and amusing, this is a refreshing and instructive look at the mistakes we all make in child-rearing and a humorous testimony to parents who don't have it all figured out. Paperback.
Yes, there are times when its appropriate to reason with your child, to patiently and eloquently explain why he or she needs to do as you ask. You might present convincing arguments like "Because it makes you strong"; "Because it will keep you safe"; "Because its good for you"; "Because its bad for you." But there are times when the only thing that really makes sense is . . . "Because I said so!!"
This book is a hilarious, honest romp through motherhood—the joys, the sleeplessness, the frazzled days, the unending carpooling, the in-house refereeing, the dieting (yeah, right), the worrying—and did we say, the joy?
Heres what some of that joy looks like—with excerpts straight from the book:
• I tried to do the Buns of Steel video, but quickly realized that it wasnt intended for people who have buns of pudding.
• I felt like my head might explode. I kind of hoped it would so I could take a nice, peaceful ambulance ride out of there.
• I was a little at a loss. I mean, those parenting books dont tell you how to break up a fight over an imaginary friend.
• Moms arent allowed to get sick more than one day a year. Single moms arent allowed to get sick ever.
• Before you have children you cant imagine yourself saying things like "Dont put chocolate milk in your pants," "Take the hot dog out of your nose," or "Because I said so!"
If youre a mom-to-be or a mom in the trenches, youll love knowing that youre not the only one out there who sometimes just figures it out as you go along—and sometimes cant figure it out at all. But in the end, Dawn has these words of encouragement just for you: "Enjoy this time. Even when they make you crazy, these are the best days of your life." And they really are, arent they?
