I Just Want to Be Perfect - The Book!

Big news, you guys! I got an essay published in a book that just came out. It's called "I Just Want to Be Perfect" and it's available now on Amazon and at Barnes & Noble and probably some other places. I don't want to brag or anything, but my essay is pretty good. It's possibly the funniest "Horrifying Conversation with Mini" that I've ever written.  I think you'll enjoy it because in one story Mini humiliates me in public, creates incredibly memorable song lyrics & forces me to accept the fact that I am the worst at parenting. It's good stuff.

This book is the fourth in the series of anthologies edited by Jen Mann (People I Want to Punch in the Throat). The first one was called "I Just Want to Pee Alone" and it made the New York Times best-seller list. Since I had an essay in that book as well, that makes me a New York Times best-selling something or other. Contributor, I think? In any case, it makes me a fancy lady.

This book is hilarious and has 37 essays from really funny people. It''s all about the pressure we feel to be perfect and describing how we've utterly failed at it. When Jen asked me if I had any funny stories to describe my parenting fails, I was like: "Yes. Those stories are myriad and spring from a well that will never run dry" because as you already know, I'm an idiot.

So later on, Jen asked the contributors to make some memes to help promote the book, providing examples of our parenting fails. I was like "How many should I make? Like 20 or 30?" And Jen was like "Maybe one?" But it was too late because I'd already made 5. Here they are:

Also! Here are some excerpts from my essay:

So please consider buying this book and if you do, please consider leaving a positive review on Amazon. It makes a huge difference for us and we'd appreciate to so much. Thank you, friends!
