Never will I ever . . . blame the holidays for my lack of motivation.
I never used to think that I would blame the holidays for not getting anything done. It seemed like a cop out. However, that was way before having children.
I should have had this post done last month. I should have had the book finished last month.
Then the holidays and the aforementioned lack of motivation. Time was also not on my side. I decided to do things like go to work, make Christmas cookies and try to remember where I hid the presents. Typical things that people do, right?
Unfortunately, I have an ebook version, which was on my kid’s tablet. This meant that I had to borrow the tablet more than she liked. It was another reminder that I like real books rather than ebooks. Luckily, this book is available in both forms.
However, I did finally finish the book. It was really enjoyable and funny. Also, it’s nice to know that I’m not alone in being an imperfect parent. My favorite was the article about Gwyneth Paltrow. I don’t want to give it away. You should read it for yourself.
This is the book that you should give to new parents as a companion to “What to Expect When You’re Expecting.” Seriously, who expects to have perfect children and be perfect parents? People who don’t have children yet. They need to read this book.
