Every once in a while you come across a book that gives you an epiphany, such as, “What a minute: IT’S NOT JUST ME?!” For anyone with small children, THIS is that book.
I Still Just Want to Pee Alone is the third edition of a compilation of essays by award winning blogger and New York Times best selling author Jen Mann of People I Want to Punch in the Throat, reminding us that “Motherhood is STILL the toughest – and STILL the funniest – job you’ll ever love.”
In this book you’ll read stories from some of the most hilarious parents in the writing world. The ones who, thankfully, managed to squeeze out a few moments between corralling their minions and fighting for sanity to record these tales of shit-shows, meltdowns, parenting fails, and pure hilarity so that we can all nod our heads in agreement and realize WE ARE NOT ALONE.
I was given an advanced review copy from one of the writers, who just happens to be a favorite blogger of mine: Kathryn of Foxy Wine Pocket. Not only did I love the book, but I know you will, too. You will feel like many of these authors reached into your mind and pulled out the very thoughts you were thinking while doing those tasks that you believed every other parent seemed to pull off effortlessly, like taking your child to a doctor’s appointment without it turning into a shit-show, the euphoria of getting precious moments alone (and what we do with that time), and a genius compilation of all the ways to piss-off babies (spoiler alert: it doesn’t take much, and you’re probably doing ALL of them).
The book even includes some pretty serious and raw accounts of the darkness we can sometimes feel when the walls seem to be closing in and we think we are the only ones and oh my god we must be terrible humans. Fear not. And remember, WE ARE NOT ALONE. (Especially when we pee.)
