The Mother of All Meltdowns

By A Bunch of Red Hot Mamas Losing Their Cool

This book should be required reading by all teenage girls as a back-up birth control device!  To the uninitiated, the stories recounted by those 'red hot mammas"  will instill shivers and stifle their desire to have sex and risk the realities of premature pregnancy!

For those among us who've"'been there, done that," this is a read filled with chuckles and familiar frailties!  This group of blogger Moms have compiled a series of their worst mommy moments with candor and humor.  As the mother of 3 adult boys, I saw myself in many of the scenarios and giggled at the memories.  I don't believe any woman survives motherhood without "losing it" at least once.  It's a comfort to know that others have been there and survived, as did their children!

From having a toddler lose a wedding ring down the toilet, to powdered sugar fights, to vacation disasters, each writer has described in detail their best and worst moments of motherhood.  No matter what your age, if you have raised children, you will find these ladies endearing in their honesty, and valiant in their vulnerability.   You will nod your head and smile when you're not choking with laughter! 
  

I received a free copy of the book in exchange for this review, but my review is genuine and truthful.

They're both in college now, so, while sad, it is a bit of a relief. Of course, grandchildren will eventually arrive (better not be for many years!), but when (and it IS when) they act up, they will be their parents' problems.
Ahhhhhhhhh.................
