Wendy Hagen is rad.
If you don't read her blog, you should. Her post about Pinterest? Go. Right now.
If you don't have a copy of her book, YOU NEED ONE.
It is my top recommendation for new mamas. For struggling mamas. For doing awesome at everything mamas (even if I sort of think that they are lying liars that lie).
It will make you laugh, it will make you cry, it will make you feel normal when you feel crazy, it will encourage you, it will help you know that you aren't alone, it will make you a better wife, mama, friend, and human.
I have three copies to share with you.
Because you need to read it, like whoa.
You need to know what a MBD is, and what to do about it.
I have me quite a few MBDs. In fact I just had a whole weekend of them. Not my fave. But trying to laugh through them is how I deal.
All you need to do is tell me something. Anything. Happy or sad. Funny or mundane. Tell me how your kid tracked poop ALL OVER THE UPSTAIRS right before a party (oh wait, that was mine and I have never HATED THE GUTS OUT OF CARPET MORE!!!!)
I will draw three names tomorrow and send the happy books on their way.
(entries are now closed, but you can always order Wendy's book here.)
edited to add...
I loved, loved, loved reading the comments on this post. I feel so much more normal in my crazy.
Thank you for sharing the wonderful, horrible, unbelieveable, things that happen to all of us.
When I am having a bad day, I am coming back here to find some sunshine in the shared stories.
The three winners are:
Sarah- who had for sure the worst day.
Kate B.- who made me laugh (sorry.)
Angie- I think the teenage years start at three.
