There were a few things I wanted to be when I “grew up” (I have that in quotes because it’s still questionable if I have grown up yet or not):
- writer (published)
- business owner
Those were some lofty dreams for a little Louisiana country girl, right?
I took my LSAT, but never applied to Law School after my undergrad.
I was pre-med (for all of one semester) when I decided that I did NOT love Physics or Chemistry.
I (like most people) worked for someone else for a long time before I decided it was time to jump ship and try my own thing.
Now, I have finally crossed something ELSE off of my list: WRITER
Here is a little secret about me: I don’t write very well, but most of you who follow me probably already know that. (Why do you think my site is all crafts and recipes?) Those lofty dreams of me being the next Patricia Cornwell vanished quickly when I realized I could NOT write well enough to capture an audience. I am too dreamy, I jump from one thing to the next, seriously. My mind wanders. Squirrel. What was I writing again? Oh…yea…
I am officially PUBLISHED. You are probably thinking to yourself, “How in the WORLD did that happen?” I am actually trying to figure that out myself. Actually, myself, along with 29 other FABULOUS bloggers who have put together the next big thing….the next New York Times Best Seller….and here it is:
What exactly can you find in here? Not rainbows and unicorns – this is the REAL deal on motherhood and what happens when real life gets in the way of our dreams of being Martha Stewart. Well…that’s my silly dream, but you know what I mean right?
When your child takes a sharpie marker to your walls and you react by:
a.) pulling at your hair
b.) screaming STOP until you are hoarse
c.) crying hysterically like a baby
d.) scrub wall furiously with comet
e.) all of the above
That’s this book…the real deal, burnt cookies and all. So grab some wine, curl up with a blanket, and get ready for a dose of REALISM from 30 moms who aren’t afraid to share their disasters.
Follow the book on FaceBook , Google+, and Twitter and keep up to date on all of the mayhem. You can also find some cool info on the book, as well as a list of all of the great bloggers who helped contribute to this meltdown mayhem here.
I even have my very own AUTHOR PAGE, it’s for real, y’all!
You can find The Mother of All Meltdowns: Real Stories of Moms’ Finest (Worst, Completely Awful) Momentson eReaders and (gasp) PRINT!!!!!
