Before we left for vacation, I was looking for a new book to read on my Kindle. I tired of the “Fifty Shades” series and wanted something light and fun. Then I found “Confessions of a Scary Mommy” and it was the funniest thing I’ve ever read.
Jill Smokler started a blog called Scary Mommy after she had her first child a few years ago. She didn’t know that “mommy blogging” was a thing, and her blog took off. There was a confessionals part where moms could anonymously write in things like “I pretend I’m asleep when my husband calls me to put the other baby to bed.” or “I encourage my children to bite their nails so I don’t have to trim them.”
Anyway, she ended up writing a book all about parenting and included confessionals in every chapter. The book had hundreds of them. They were laugh out loud funny. Another favorite was about a woman who spent too much time in the bathroom secretly reading magazines. Her husband kept nagging her to see a GI doctor.
The chapters ranged from how she picks favorites of her kids, time at the pool, the infant years, mealtime, how even her dog suffered from having new babies in the house, how you don’t steal a babysitter, etc.
It was a light and fast read, very relatable, and really LOL funny. I encourage you to pick it up!
