"For the first time, I felt safe when I was alone. My neighborhood held me and the boys in the palm of its hand. And five years later, when Tiny Pants rode a two-wheeler without training wheels for the first time, yelling, “I’m only five years old!” at the top of his lungs, the nameless neighbors who had watched us walk to the park at the end of the street week after week stood up on their porches and cheered for Tiny. When I decided to trust the universe to protect me, I stopped being afraid."
While the tone differs from Girlish, the quirky and humorous style found in her debut memoir, Girlish, shines through. She offers hilarious takes on the dark side of parenting (“I had one rule, don’t kill the children.”) and the mishaps of single life. (Check out her advice for single parents thinking about going wild). While the book is largely about her experience as a single parent, the book has broad appeal. Despite not having children, many sections caused me to laugh out loud or cry along with her. I loved her freewheeling recipe instructions and encouragement to either wing it or experiment with what’s on hand along with her frequent reminders that cheese is love. Who can argue with that?
Lillibridge brought her A-game when writing this endearing memoir. She deftly weaves fun and witty sections about tooth fairy failures and the sewing of inappropriate stuffed animals with heartfelt scenes about children’s grief and the conundrum all parents face: how to be vulnerable enough to let your children change you while also having the courage to let them grow up.
Whether you’re a fan of Girlish, a parent, or someone looking for a fun and quirky read, you’ll love Mama, Mama, Only Mama. I highly recommend this book.

for the free copy.
I'm so happy that I received this arc copy cuz I love it.
Not alot of people in this world now how it is to be a single mom. The struggle we do has mom or a dad being single Dad.
We have our good days and we have our bad days.
This is inside of a single parent and I was one of them.
This book is perfect for any single parents out there.
I now that sometimes we feel like giving up and ask ourselves why me but we are stronger then you think. When you look back and think this moments are some just wonderful and wouldn't change the outcomes.
Funny story, one day while I was cleaning my daughter at the time was just 2yrs old she clam out the playpen and put the kitten in the microwave. Don't worry she didn't turn it on. She just loves puting things in it.
This is one moment that I think about it now and it funny to me and my daughter.
I wouldn't change anything.
When I receive this arc copy I just thought about me, once upon a time I was a single mom with 5 little kids. It was hard and I have struggled three the years. It's not a easy job to do. It probably the hardest ever. Doing everything by yourself, doing everything for your kids by yourself. Not taking time for yourself cuz everything is on you. Even now that am married it not not easy.
5 star read ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐
