On Tuesday, I posted a giveaway for the book “I Just Want to Pee Alone” by a “bunch of kickass mom bloggers”. To enter, I asked you all to tell me the name of your inevitable MOMOIR; funniest title wins. There were so many great responses, I asked a few of the book’s authors to help judge.
Kim from Let Me Start By Saying
Robyn from Hollow Tree Ventures
Julie from Rants from Mommyland
Nicole from Ninja Mom
Anna from My Life and Kids
Bethany from Bad Parenting Moments
Susan from Divine Secrets of a Domestic Diva
Jen from People I Want to Punch in the Throat
JD from Honest Mom
Tara from You Know It Happens at Your House Too
Jessica from Four Plus An Angel
Alicia from Naps Happen
Andrea from The Underachiever’s Guide to Being a Domestic Goddess
Sometimes multiple judges gets complicated. Not this time. Nine out of the thirteen judges picked Meg Hanson’s momoir, “Everything I Know About Parenting, I Learned from Google”.
I guess that goes to show you just how many of us have googled terms like, “do stretch marks go away”, “what does neon yellow poop mean” and “who would like to take my toddler for a long weekend”.
Congratulations, Meg! Now, you just have to write 200-300 single spaced pages and your momoir will be complete! Please email me to get your prize. The rest of you can purchase “I Just Want to Pee Alone” by clicking here.
But I’m not done yet. You guys wrote so many brilliant momoir titles, I couldn’t let them linger underneath an old post in the comments for eternity, so I decided to unearth my favorites here.
