You read that correctly. I am officially published in a book. And it’s a funny book, too. I mean really, how could it not be with a title like I Just Want to Pee Alone?
This fabulousness is the brain child of one of my favorite funny ladies, Jen from People I Want to Punch in the Throat, and features original essays by Jen, me, and 35 other mom bloggers – many of whom I’m sure you know. Check it out:
So what’s the book actually about? I’m so glad you asked! Here’s an official summary:
Motherhood is the toughest – and funniest – job you’ll ever love. Raising kids is hard work. The pay sucks, your boss is a tyrant, and the working conditions are pitiful – you can’t even take a bathroom break without being interrupted with another outrageous demand.
Hasn’t every mother said it before? “I just want to pee alone!”
I Just Want to Pee Alone is a collection of hilarious essays from 37 of the most awesome mom bloggers on the web. Read hysterical essays like:
Embarrassment, Thy Name is Motherhood
A Pinterest-Perfect Mom, I am Not
And Then There was that Time a Priest Called Me a Terrible Mother (that’s mine!)
So She Thought She Could Cut Off My Stroller
Fair warning: This book is for adults. It’s definitely R-rated for language and adult content. Not a good Mother’s Day gift for your conservative auntie. But a great one for your best friend.
So what are you waiting for? Go ahead and buy your copy of I Just Want to Pee Alone now – paperback or Kindle – or get it on iTunes here. The reviews are in and they all say you’ll love it. And I honestly think you will, too.
PS : I’m proud to say that before we’ve even started truly promoting it, the book is already a #1 best seller in Amazon’s Humor: Parenting & Families category. And already in the top 20 of the overall Humor & Entertainment category – like ALL humor and entertainment books on Amazon! HOLY CRAP!
PPS : Katie Couric, Huffington Post, and being published in a book have not given me a big head. I swear. I still live in yoga pants, schlep my kids around, dole out countless snacks, and clean gross things. Plus I don’t have time to go get this fancy gel manicure removed (that I got for the show), so as a bonus, I also have nasty looking nails. Nope. No delusions of grandeur here. Now excuse me while I dash to the bathroom. Undoubtedly, NOT ALONE.
