Helicopter Mom and Just Plane Dad are Published

5 Oct

We’ve got some great news to share with our readers…(drumroll please)…we’re published!  Obviously, we are ecstatic and couldn’t be happier that Crystal of Mommifried asked us to be included in her new book The Mother of All Meltdowns.

Along with 29 amazing others, we wrote our version of a complete and total parenting meltdown.  Here’s a snippet of our story: My meltdown officially began the day my only daughter, Beloved, was born.  She was a wonderfully unexpected surprise pregnancy (yes they do happen) and Just Plane Dad and I had no idea what we were in for.   Fast forward 9 months and my world is completely turned upside down by this beautiful blonde haired, blue eyed girl.  It was our beginning…”



I have always dreamed of writing and saw that come to fruition with the launch of this blog…BUT…having your words go to print in a book is a whole other story.  I walk with my head a bit higher today and just, oh I don’t know, feel differently.  It’s been an amazing few months waiting on our newest “baby” and now that it’s here; happiness abounds!

Here’s what our fearless leader Crystal had to say about our book, The Mother of All Meltdowns: The following anthology was written by women who have had their moments. Together we have experienced the anguish and frustration of the adult-sized tantrum. We have shed the tears, dropped to our knees in agony and asked the age-old question, “Why me?”  From poop-decorated rooms to having our liquid gold scrutinized and confiscated by TSA, we’re not afraid to share our collection of 30 tell-all stories. We are survivalists and know that at the end of every meltdown there is a silver lining.
