Mother of all Meltdowns is having a birthday!

21 Oct

It’s hard to believe but our book has had another birthday!  Just like with our real baby, time has flown by and we find ourselves in denial about where the time has gone.


Happy Birthday to us
Happy Birthday to us
Happy Birthday to the Mother of all Meltdowns
Happy Birthday to us!


We are so excited to have been part of this book and its stories from mom’s that truly understand how hard parenting is. When you’re pregnant, everyone offers tons of helpful advice and loving moments that are sure to melt your heart. You really start to believe that life will be as perfect as it’s depicted on TV.

Mother of all Meltdowns



What you realize quickly is that there are moments, often many moments, in which you will feel defeated and ready to give up. A mom can only take so much before a meltdown occurs. And trust me, a meltdown will happen.


Your meltdown may surprise you innocently enough and rear its ugly head at the DMV, like mine did. Here’s a snippet from my story:

Beloved’s smiling face stares at me from across the room and I know the truth.  She now holds her future in her hands.  This seemingly inconsequential piece of paper offers her the most coveted treasure of children her age: freedom.  Freedom to drive herself to the mall, freedom to get a job that requires transportation, freedom to grab a movie with friends and in the near future; freedom to leave her childhood home as she starts her own journey in life.  Leaving is imminent.


No matter where we meltdown, hearing that all mom’s experience this; will get you through. Celebrate our birthday with use and grab your copy.  Buy it here!


Meet all of the authors on The Mother of all Meltdowns website and enjoy the book!

    Congratulations on your book’s birthday! I completely agree with you that there is plenty of advice on the early years, but not so much later on.It’s nice to read stories from parents to reassure us that we aren’t completely messing up.

    I’m so sorry I didn’t get here yesterday – happy belated birthday! And thanks for the shout out. Fortunately we have been to Disney many times since then without a meltdown in sight. We always reminder my daughter of it, though!

    I think I’m going to re-read my copy tonight to celebrate!

      I started doing the same today at lunch. You tend to forget the stories so it’s fun to re-read. I hope our readers enjoy them as much as we do.

    I am terrified of the day my kids get their license! Thankfully I’ve got at least 5 years to prepare myself!

      Believe me Rabia, it goes fast. It is a wonderful day and a scary emotional day all rolled into one. We survived but I’ll never forget how my heart felt at seeing my daughter’s elated face!
