The Parenting Guide for the Rest of Us
By Laurie Kilmartin, Karen Moline, Alicia Ybarbo & Mary Ann Zoellner
Any book that explains the pros of having a gay child gets an A+ from me! That would be my favorite chapter!
You know you’re a shitty mom if. . .
Your favorite holiday is back to school day
Your fridge is covered with crayon drawings of you with your blackberry where your face should be
You spend the whole playdate trying to figure out how to get rid of the mom who won’t leave
Your idea of Hell is a car trip with your kids
Playing with dolls or trains with your kids makes you want to stick your head in the oven
You’ve figured out how to drop your sick kid off at daycare before anyone notices
You consider the idea of wanting to have another baby a sign of mental illness
What can you add to the list!
