SynopsisEveryone just stop for one bleeping minute so we can all get real with each other. Being a mom is some tough $#!†. You're constantly wearing questionable substances that make you ask, "is this chocolate or ... oh, crap ..." and your purse is merely a receptacle for three-week-old snacks and broken crayons. Let's be honest ... even when we're doing this “mom” thing right, we're somehow doing it completely wrong. Pardon us while we dust off our collective Mother of the Year trophy and proudly present you with an epic anthology of #MOMFAILS. *Stories inspired by real life (unless you’re a cop, then it’s all complete fiction). Names and situations have been changed to protect the guilty (and by guilty, we mean the moms). Because motherhood is a battlefield and we're all just trying to survive by any means necessary. Featuring this amazing lineup: Alissa York, A.M. Willard, BL Berry, Carina Adams, Claudia Burgoa, Crystal Burnette, Dylan Allen, Faith Andrews, Gia Riley, J.A. DeRouen, Kate Anslinger, Leddy Harper, LK Collins, LL Collins, Marie James, Piper Rayne, Riann C. Miller, Shari J. Ryan, Stephanie Rose, Stephie Walls, SM West, TL Swan, Teresa Michaels, and foreword written by: Nicole Kane Knepper.
This is a great, and funny anthology. I think every mom can relate to these fails. Today, for me, has been a day from hell. I’ve thought, so many times today, that my kids are assholes. Don’t get me wrong, I love them to pieces and wouldn’t trade them for the world. I’m blessed to be able to be a stay at home mom, but somedays, yea.
While reading this, during the day from hell, I don’t feel as big of a failure.
These stories will have you laughing.
Usually with anthologies, I write a review for each story/book. But there are 24 stories and they are all really short. Plus, my 1 year old is trying to flip over the back of the couch and has flung poop at me twice, so I just didn’t have the time to do that. I’m sure these authors will understand. Plus my 8 year old is too busy with youtube videos to help me out unless I beg her. I’m picking my battles today.
The stories I loved the most are:
1.) What’s That Smell by Shari J Ryan
2.) Afternoon Delight by B.L. Berry
3.) Winging it by Marie James
Winging it is also the one I relate to the most. I’m also a military wife, so I know all about Murphy’s Law while your husband is deployed. Or how they send dirty emails and want you to reply back to them with dirty things. They just don’t get you can’t because you’ve been shit on, literally, 5 times that day, puked on, and told numerous times “I want my daddy!”
But, even though today is the day from hell, I have 2 beautiful, happy, smart, well adjusted brats.
“Children, while absolutely adorable and loveable and funny, are really little assholes underneath it all.”
