And we should seize such affirmations, no? Seize them and hug them and love them and feed them and call them George.
This is a lovely review of my book on Amazon, and from someone who doesn’t read this blog, so we know she hasn’t been brainwashed. Yet.
Every Mommy’s Best Girlfriend, March 15, 2007
Reviewer: A. Sydow (USA)
Reading Melinda Roberts’ new book, Mommy Confidential: Adventures from the Wonderbelly of Motherhood, is like spending an evening with your best girlfriends. I’m probably one of the few people (in the universe) who has not read her blog, but I’m so glad I ordered this book. It is fun, it is invigorating, and it is packed with brutal honesty.
What’s so unique about Roberts’ book is that many of the events she records are written about within minutes of them happening—so we get to experience the ups and downs of life with small children as she does. Her nearly daily entries reveal the truly tender, life-altering, and heartbreaking moments of motherhood in a way that no other book on the subject does.
And Roberts is not just funny ha-ha. She is I-can’t-breathe-I’m-laughing-so-hard funny. I’m keeping my fingers crossed that she either turns this book into a stand-up comedy routine and takes it on the road, or that she comes out with a sequel. Regardless, I’ll be keeping up with her future adventures on her blog
Thank you so much! Now please go tell Harper Collins and Penguin.
