If you haven't heard, there's a new book out called "I Just Want to Pee Alone" by "a bunch of kickass mom bloggers".
If you scan the names of the people who wrote essays for the book (Julianna Miner from Rants from Mommyland, Jen from People I Want to Punch in the Throat, Brenna from Suburban Snapshots, Nicole from Ninja Mom and virtually every other funny mom blogger in existence), you will notice that I am not amongst them.
Cue sad trombone.
I'd love to go on a rant about how I was not considered kickass enough to contribute, but the truth is, when they asked for submissions, it was right after Harlow was born and I just couldn't swing it. I was at a point where I was trying to exercise my right to say "no" for the greater good of my family (and sanity) and unfortunately, when I finally did say "no", I said "no" to the wrong thing.
Not that I actually said "no". I just kind of ignored the request and totally underestimated how bummed I would be when the book came out and I wasn't included.
Especially when the essays have hilariously kickass titles like:
I love Disney World. No Wait, That Whole Title is a Typo…..By Karen of Baby Sideburns
Eat Poop, Laugh. No, I Did Not Forget a Comma…..by Patti of Insane in the Mom Brain
In the Name of the Father, the Son, and the Holy Penis….by Bethany of Bad Parenting Moments
So She Thought She Could Cut Off My Stroller….by Keesha of New Mom's Stage
A Stranger in the Land of Twigs and Berries…..by Suzanne of Toulouse and Tonic
The Tale of Two Vaginas….by Susan of Divine Secrets of a Domestic Diva
and so on.
See? Aren't you sad that you weren't included too???
The only other bloggers missing that I can tell, are Jill from Scary Mommy, Nicole from Moms Who Drink and Swear, Amber from Parenting Illustrated with Crappy Pictures, and Leanne from Ironic Mom, but they all have a much better excuse than I do— they have THEIR OWN BOOKS coming out.
So, what's a blogger without an amazon author profile to do besides write a book of her own?
Let's start with a title, shall we?
