Have you ever skimmed over words at bedtime just to speed read through story time?
Eaten your kids’ last PopTart?
Lied about the Doodlebops disappearing from TV?
Pumped your kid full of Tylenol and dropped them off at daycare?
Called daycare “school” just to ease your own mommy guilt?
If so, “Dirty Little Secrets from Otherwise Perfect Moms” is the book for you. Written by the moms who brought you “I Was a Perfect Mother Before I Had Kids,” this is a fun collection of page by page “momfessionals” that would make a great Mother’s Day gift (especially with a spa gift card thrown in as a bookmark…ahem.) They interviewed hundreds of moms and found that all mothers have a few skeletons in their closet. Don’t pass this little gem of a book off as a total cream puff, though. Some of the confessions are painfully honest. Many, though, will make you laugh out loud.
As part of the Dirty Little Secrets MotherTalk book tour, MotherTalk is sponsoring a contest at their book club site. Share your own dirty little motherhood secret for a chance to win an Amazon gift certificate. I’ve already shared some of my dirty little secrets above, so go check out the contest.
I agree with Plain Jane Mom, though. I wouldn’t recommend this book for a first time mother. It might scare the hell out of her.
