I’ve been a fan of Sh*tty Mom for a long time. You can imagine my excitement when I was able to attend not one, but two events for the release of their newest book Sh*tty Mom For All Seasons: Half-@ssing It All Year Long. It’s a follow-up to their 2012 New York Times bestseller Sh*tty Mom: The Parenting Guide For The Rest of Us. Why was I at two events for the same book release, you ask? Well, I was supposed to go with a pal but she had to work the first night but she was able to come out the next night for the second event. And me being the party mama that I am, why would I turn down an opportunity to have drinks and cake two nights in a row.
The first event I went to was hosted by Lyss Stern of Divalysscious Moms on the UES (Upper East Side) in New York City. In a fabulous posh apartment packed with women laughing, joking, eating and drinking, while sharing their own personal shitty mom moments.
For those of you who are not familiar with the backstory of Shitty Mom, their first book The Parenting Guide For The Rest of Us is a parenting guide unlike any you’ve ever read. This is isn’t going to teach you how to make organic origami sandwiches for your kid’s lunchbox. Instead it’s gonna teach you “How to Sleep Until 9 A.M. Every Weekend” and “How To Not Hear the Baby in the Middle of the Night,” With the success of their first book it would only make sense that a second book would soon follow.
The follow up (shown above) explores the occasions throughout the year that test every mother’s patience and inspire self-deprecating humor and that second glass of wine. The book is organized by the four seasons and will teach you how to navigate your way through motherhood, tell you that it’s okay to laugh at the occasional parenting fail, and it will without a doubt have you appreciate your own mother.
The very next night had a totally different feel as I met up with my blogging buddy Allaya and other friends downtown at the exclusive HAUS nightclub where The Moms were hosting their own Sh*tty Mom book release party. This dance party surrounded by friends, laughter, cocktails, a rocking DJ and a great book! It was just what the doctor ordered for a mommy only night on the town.
Pick up your copies of Sh*tty Mom on Amazon today as these books are hilariously funny. Most definitely worth every penny as a teat to yourself or a friend.
