Abstract:

"Confessions of a Scary Mommy" is a collection of original essays that take an irreverent look at the underbelly of parenting--things most moms would never admit, but feel every day. Brutally honest and hysterically funny, Confessions will leave you feeling less alone in the sometimes overwhelming and exhausting world of motherhood. If you're already a fan, lock the bathroom door on your whining kids, run a bubble bath, and settle in. If you've not encountered Scary Mommy before, break out a glass of champagne as well, because you'll be toasting your initiation into a very select club. Chapters cover everything from husbands ("If he could be carried around in a Baby Bjorn all day, he would.") to other people's kids ("Other people's kids are just useless, bad influences who play no necessary role in our lives.") to PTA fundraisers ("It brings out the worst in people ... and who wants an overpriced roll of wrapping paper, anyway? How about something we actually want to buy? Alcohol, for instance.") Each chapter begins with the best anonymous confessions from Smokler's popular online Confessional. Whether you're a mom, a dad, a grandmother, a grandfather, an aunt, an uncle, a teacher, a godparent, or a teenager in need of birth control, "Confessions of a Scary Mommy "will be sure to leave you nodding your head in agreement and laughing out loud.--
