Parenting: Illustrated with Crappy Pictures

UPDATE: Commenting for the give-away is now closed. WINNERS ARE BELOW.

Do you guys know about the blog Parenting: Illustrated with Crappy Pictures? It's so awesome and hilarious. It's written by a woman named Amber Dusick who is incredibly sweet and nice. We've exchanged like 6 emails so I can say that with total confidence and authority.

She was also the last blogger to win a certain bad ass award called the Parent's Magazine Funniest Blog of the Year. So when I won it this year, I reached out to her to ask her some stuff and ending up being all weird and like:  "BY THE SECRET CODE OF BLOGGING YOU MUST NOW GIVE ME THE AMULET."

So a couple of weeks ago, her publishing company emailed me and asked if I would review her book. I was like "Oh even yesser!" and I did. My review is right here. You can check out the book on Amazon right here.

Then they sent me 5 books to give away and I was like "YIPPEEE!!" because the book is so funny and sweet and wonderful. You guys will love it. You know I don't usually do reviews or give aways, but this is special. First of all it's books. Second, it's another blogger getting to write a book and live her dream and who wouldn't want to help with that?

Want to win it? I'd love to send these books to folks who are fans of the blog. Leave a comment below telling me your favorite crappy blog post from Parenting: Illustrated with Crappy Pictures and I'll pick five tomorrow night. You can just say something like "the one where she goes to Target and ends up buying curtains" or "the one where everyone throws up on her",  I'll know what you're talking about.

xo, Lydia

PS: I think maybe possibly next week - maybe Monday? - I'm going to be guest posting on Momastery. I have no idea if it's really going to happen but I think so. I'm so excited because you know that Glennon has been my Yoprah (Yoda/Oprah) since before she was famous and I love everything about that blog. So if it happens, I will be spending that day hiding in my bathroom trying not to throw up and being too scared to read the comments.

Please email me with your address ASAP at and I will get the out to you this week. If I don't hear from you by Friday, I'll have to pick someone else and that will make me sad for you.

Thank you so much and congratulations!
