Format: Paperback
I was happy to receive an advanced reader's copy of Lose the Cape: Never Will I Ever. It is a refreshing blend of confessionals by some very talented writers and bloggers. I was taken back in time to my pre-mom days when I was quick to judge mothers: mothers with tantruming toddlers in grocery stores, bottle-fed babies on park benches, or summer-dressed preschoolers out for a walk on a cold winter day. I told myself I would never be like THOSE moms. Ahem. Then I became a mom. Not only that, I became a mom to a child with special needs. He’s 11 now, and he threw toddler tantrums in grocery stores, got fed bottles after he was six months old, and refused to dress for winter weather when it was 40 degrees outside. Never Will I Ever is a wonderful read for new moms, veteran moms, and expecting moms. (Welcome to the club!)

I’m not sure which I did more often while reading Lose the Cape 2: laugh or shout, ME TOO! The anthology is a must-read for moms and dads looking for some levity and a sense of community.

I did receive a free copy for review.

Never Will I Ever (and then I had kids) is a compilation of some wonderful true life examples of how parenting is never what you expected and can surprise you in so many ways. Some stories were downright hilarious and incredibly fun to read on my lunch break. Some stories were so beautifully written that I wondered if these people had careers as professional writers. Some stories were so relatable and moving that they made me want to reach through the screen and hug the mom who wrote it, and say “Me too, mama! You’re doing great!”

I think this book is a great read for expectant moms as well as “in the trenches” moms, because we all can benefit from a little reality and sharing of experiences. Soon-to-be or brand new moms can start to adjust their own expectations and those who have lived through some similar experiences can definitely enjoy relating to the storyteller.

Just when we thought our crazy expectations were uniquely ours, Alexa and Kerry prove we aren’t alone by tapping the motherhood keg again. 30 parents provide the (hysterical) proof that it is a different game once you are out of the armchair and playing on the field. The writers don’t miss a beat when sharing the fantasies and realities of motherhood and you will find yourself nodding in agreement and laughing along story by story. (Disclosure: I received a free copy of this book to review, but as always, I speak my mind.)

As a contributor I was privy to read an advanced copy of this book and I LOVED it. Great collection of essays, which range from hilarious to "pull at your heart strings." Must read for all mamas, papas, and parents-to-be!

I absolutely loved this book. Being a parent is not easy by any means, before you have a child of your own there are so many things you "would never do." I love that this book shows the realism of parent hood along with the ups and downs. Every parent thinks they are screwing up its nice to read about others who have experienced the same or similar situations and how they dealt with it. I also love how this book teaches to be non judgemental, everyone goes through different things, and everyone deals with them their own way. I thank the people who wrote this book it's nice to be connected to others by common battles :)

I am not sure how many times I laughed and said “Me too!” when I was reading this book. From all of the expectations you had for yourself before you were a parent to your parenting reality every essay is spot on. Sometimes (okay most of the time) I find myself thinking “Is my kid the only that does this crap?” It is nice to know that I am not alone and my kid is not the only one. Everyone needs to see the honesty of parenthood and this book definitely shows that. Another great thing about this book is that they are essays so when you get interrupted every five seconds it is easy to find your spot again. ~Welcome to my World

I loved the essays in this book, and not just because I am a contributor. I have to say I am pretty proud to have my words among some of the amazing writers in this anthology. The essays are humorous and poignant, but they have one more vital quality. They give the parent reading it a sense of solidarity, and in the parenting game we all need a hefty dose of that. This would make a great gift for anyone who cares for children, parent or otherwise.
