About this item

STOP! DO NOT OPEN THIS BOOK UNTIL YOU RECITE THESE VOWS!I shall remember that no mother is perfect and my children will thrive because, and sometimes even in spite, of me.I shall not preach to a fellow mother who has not asked my opinion. It's none of my damn business.I shall maintain a sense of humor about all things motherhood.
Sometimes I just let my children fall asleep in front of the TV.
In a culture that idealizes motherhood, it's scary to confess that, in your house, being a mother is beautiful and dirty and joyful and frustrating all at once. Admitting that it's not easy doesn't make you a bad mom; at least, it shouldn't.
If I can't survive my daughter as a toddler, how the hell am I going to get through the teenage years?
When Jill Smokler was first home with her small children, she thought her blog would be something to keep friends and family updated. To her surprise, she hit a chord in the hearts of mothers everywhere.
I end up doing my son's homework. It's wrong, but so much easier.
Total strangers were contributing their views on that strange reality called motherhood. As other women shared their stories, Jill realized she wasn't alone in her feelings of exhaustion and imperfection.
My eighteen month old still can’t say "Mommy" but used the word "sh*t" in perfect context.
But she sensed her readers were still holding back, so decided to start an anonymous confessional, a place where real moms could leave their most honest thoughts without fearing condemnation.
