Before I became a parent, I had all these great plans...then the children arrived. And I found I wasn't living up to my own (admittedly unreasonably high) expectations. I don't make organic baby food. My six-year-old is hooked on Cheetohs and Lucky Charms. And my baby likes to try to gnaw on our dog. What happened to the perfect mom I thought I would be? Fortunately I have close friends who admit that they've had the same doubts and struggles I've had--and we can laugh about it. And we do.

Reading Davidson's book is like a conversation with one of your oldest friends, the one who will tell you that your jeans do make your butt look big or that the brownies you baked are overdone. Her essays are honest, candid, and laugh-out-loud (or snort-out-loud) funny. After reading her book, you'll want to hear more from her--I'm looking forward to her next collection of essays.

This really is the must read of the summer! I took "Blacklisted from the PTA" and my mother to the beach last week - we both read it and both laughed out loud through every story. I also know what I'm getting my younger sister for her birthday - a t-shirt that clearly states the only reason she's here is because my parents felt I needed a playmate.
I attribute this book to an even better vacation!

Very entertaining, humorous, but accurate view of life from a mother's perspective, but influenced also by that of an entrepreneur, businesswoman, author and writer. It doesn't get any better than that for an experiential influence that inspires!

This book is a collection of short stories which makes it easy to read. You can read one a day, or several a day. And they are very humorous. It is a good book to give as a gift to an adult friend to brighten their day as I think almost anyone can relate to one or more of the stories within these pages and likely get a good laugh at yourself. It also shows you that you don't have to be perfect, just be a mom. Give it a try, I am sure you will enjoy it, I sure did.

This is a very funny and entertaining book. I didn't think it was as funny as it could have been but maybe that's because it resembled my life a little too much. :)
