Non-Crappy Book Giveaway: The Good Mother Myth

Hey, it’s a non-crappy BOOK giveaway!

This time it is The Good Mother Myth: Redefining Motherhood to Fit Reality which is a collection of essays written by a diverse group of mothers that just came out this week. Check out all of the contributors.  Pssst – I’m one of them!   


Some of the essays are heartfelt and sincere and soul-wrenching. Some of them are funny. Some of them are confessions. Some of them have an agenda. Some of them will have you nodding and thinking, “thank goodness I’m not the only one who has had dark moments like that” and some of them will rub you in all the wrong ways. But that is why this book is great. It stretches your definition of ‘good mother’ and it makes you think.

Can a good mother smoke pot? How many times can a mother drop her child on his/her head and still be a good mother? What about a mother who struggles with depression? What about a mother who lives in a different state from her child? What about a mother who obsessively compares herself to another mother she once saw at Trader Joe’s? Just like that old spaghetti sauce commercial, it’s in there.

(PS – that last essay I mentioned that sounds annoying? The one about the obsessed mother comparing herself to someone at Trader Joe’s? That one is mine. I don’t think I actually specified that it was at Trader Joe’s in the essay so now you have, like, insider information and stuff.)

Get to the point! Here it is…

I was given two author copies and I’m giving one away! And it will be SIGNED. By me. Not by everyone. I’ll probably also draw a picture in it somewhere because I can. So there’s that.

This is shipping straight from me and I’m happy to ship anywhere in the world if you win.

  1. Lisa says:

    Yay! I’ve been looking forward to this coming out!

    • Linda Wiley says:

      I’m 71 years old and have already raised my four kids, but I SO love revisiting it all through you! If I were to win this book, would it be okay to give it to my daughter-in-law of first-child four year old? She worries SO much!

    • Sanj says:

      Woah…Lisa, you knew about the new book? And you were first to post a comment. That’s two examples proving you’re really an Insider! Wait, are you one of the essay writers? (That would be cool – and I’ll bet a bunch of us are a wee bit envious.) Can’t wait to read the new book!

  2. Kbee says:

    If you’re in, I’m in!

  12. Eilidh Smith says:

  16. Nickol says:

  17. Sarah says:

    Sounds cool!

  18. Leeann S says:

  25. Ceryle says:

    I just discovered that Facebook doesn’t give me all of your posts. Apparently, it thinks I don’t need all of your funny 🙁

    • amber says:

      Yeah, only about 10% of people who “like” FB pages actually SEE the posts now. Facebook changed things so that pages have to pay $ for everyone to see. It’s a bummer. Best way is to email subscribe which is over on the right hand column.

  144. Stephanie says:

    fun book!

  240. kimberly says:

    Yay for a great new book to read!

  241. Jen says:

    Sounds great!

  242. Stephanie says:

    Sounds great!
    As a teenager, I wanted to grow up to be like a mom I saw at a park for about two minutes. She just seemed to have it all together. Funny how we set standards for ourselves based on strangers.

  243. Melissa V says:

    Sounds like a great book.

  244. Sarah says:

    This sounds interesting. I’d love to read it.

  245. Katie M. says:

    Sounds interesting! I’m curious about trader joe’s now….

  246. LisaC says:

    As much as I’d love this book for myself I would pass it on to someone who I think needs to read it …. for many reasons.

  247. Sarah says:

    I love your blog and can’t wait to read this book!! 🙂

  248. Merritt says:

    Always a good thing to read another mom’s point of view. It has a way of showing you that no matter what you might think you are doing wrong, there are other moms out there with the same fears. We are good moms regardless of our “mistakes”.

  249. SJH says:

    Could be some fun reading… Mostly I’m just curious about your entry. And I want the sketch!

  250. Fuzzy says:

    I really enjoy reading other parents’ thoughts!

  257. Tory Dresser says:

    Totally sweet book give away!

  258. Em says:

    You were shopping at Trader Joe’s, which makes YOU awesome. Because they sell, like, organic cookies and stuff, right? I am not shopping at Trader Joe’s, so I’m jealous.

  259. YX Tan says:

    Would love to win a book for the new year!

  266. G says:

    Looks like a good book!

  267. Jessica Sellers says:

    I want to win!

  268. Nancy says:

    ooh! would love to read another book by you.

  269. Lauren Elysia says:

    Comparing yourself to another mother is the funniest thing to do to yourself! For all you know, she is probably doing to same thing with you and her own insecurities! Would love to read this book!

  270. Tricia says:

    Sounds interesting. I’d like to hear what being a mom is like from other mothers.

  271. Lisa says:

    Sounds like an interesting book! I’d love to win, and you can draw all over it. 🙂

  272. andrea b says:

    I would love to read this! What a great giveaway!

  276. kylie says:

    I’d love to win one just so I could have a signed front page with a drawing! I have your book & it was supposed to come with one of those first page sticker intro thing’s…but the sticker never came…
    Looks like a good book.

  277. Carolyn says:

    Well, we don’t have trader joes in Canada, so that can’t be me you’re comparing yourself too :-). Can’t wait to see who it was

  278. Lisa says:

    Can’t wait to read this book!

  279. Lexie Buttrey says:

    My thumb is sore from scrolling to the bottom so I could leave a comment so I could have more points to possibly win. I am a mother with depression – would love to read this!

  286. Linda Kish says:

    Sounds great. Count me in, please.

  287. Amber Knibbe says:

    So…. priority to the non Americans? 😉 (the smiley is to appear cute. And charming)

  288. Amanda says:

  295. Doreen says:

    another book for me to read!

  296. Lindsey says:

    yay sounds so fun! If I win I’ll move this book to the top of my (much too large) to-read stack. 🙂

  297. Michelle lloyd says:

    I could use a good laugh!! Can’t wait to read it

  298. Rachel says:

    I was just reading yet another article about a mom who decided to never yell at her kids, and feeling annoyed bc while I think it’s fairly basic that not-yelling is way better than yelling, it’s also much less realistic given the depths of crazy our children often get to, so instead of feeling inspired, I just feel bad. This book feels very welcome right now!

  299. Michelle says:

    Omg! I’d be so excited to get this! I have your book and would love this to add to the collection! If you vouche for these ladies than they have to be awesome just like you!! 🙂

  300. KimCS says:

    I’m soon to be nursing a newborn and entertaining a toddler. This sounds like the perfect book.

  301. Erin C. says:

    Two of my favorite bloggers are in this book!

  302. Laurie says:

    Always love “I Can, Because I Do!” It makes me happy to think and say it. There was hardly anything out there when I was a new mom except T. Berry Brazelton and Dr. Spock. Altho. my kids are now adults, I love to read parenting blogs like yours and welcome “The Good Mother Myth.” It’s so important for us all to know we’re not alone.

  303. Mindy Dyce says:

    Love the idea of this book! Can’t wait to check it out.

  304. Rebecca H says:

    This looks like something I definitely need to read.

  305. Deborah Bottcher says:

  323. courtney cahoon says:

    Want it!!

  324. Jessica says:

    You are hilarious and I love reading your stuff.

  325. Kristine says:

    Sounds like a good one!

  326. Sanj says:

    35 years ago, I knew a young mom who vowed never to say” NO” to her baby daughter, because that word was ..ahem…. so negative. She wanted to avoid the whole screaming NO thing that was looming in the future when the kid would turn two.
    Instead this thoughtful mother said, “Stop.” Stop was not negative, she reasoned. It was a helpful command that would keep her child safe. Right?
    Guess what her child did with that?
    I wonder how that kid turned out? (Probably just fine….)

  327. Julia C K says:

    Sounds great!

  328. Lo says:

    Sounds interesting. Hope those 2 copies reach new owners who will appreciate them 🙂

  332. Jill says:

    Can’t wait to read the book!

  333. Karen says:

    Want want want.

  334. Jenni McKay says:

    This mama hasn’t read much of anything actually, so a real tangible book sounds awesome!

  335. Stacy says:

    I’d love to win!

  336. mark says:

    would be a wonderful read to get an insight into the mind of the most important people in the world. mothers

  337. Sally McGouran says:

    While reading this post I couldn’t help but think about “mothers past”… did everyone (Grandma, Great Grandma, etc) feel like we do? Did they care? Or did they just go about their business, dropping babies on their heads and not giving a damn because nobody else gave a damn? I’m very interested in this book, if I don’t win I certainly hope my local library picks it up. I know I want to know how other mothers feel!

  338. Nydia says:

    It’s on my wish list! But I’d love to win it. I never win these things!

  339. Ally says:

    Sounds like a great book! And the TJ’s story sounds funny!

    sounds like a good read!

  342. whitney says:

    Sounds like a book I would love

  343. MrsJennyK says:

    This sounds so interesting! Obsessively comparing yourself to a mom you saw in Trader Joe’s? You have no idea how relieved I am to hear that I am not the only one who has done that. “What would TJMom do in this situation?” “I’ll bet TJMom wouldn’t have fed her child that McDonald’s hamburger.” “How does TJMom have it so together with three kids? I’m such a loser!”

  344. barrie says:

    would love to win and read this. thanks for the opportunity!

  345. Susan Micieli-Voutsinas says:

  346. Stacy Hill says:

    Me! Me! Me! Please

  347. Claire says:

    I think we can all get caught up in the myth of a good mother. It would be nice to read some other mom’s experiences with it.

  348. Pam Zercher says:

    Can’t WAIT for your book! However, a signed copy WITH a picture drawn by you-Priceless!

  349. Jenny Mercieca says:

    I can’t wait to win!!! 😉

  350. Allie says:

    OMG I NEED THIS BOOK! I don’t just compare myself to ONE mother, I compare myself to every mother, in every store, in my neighborhood, at work, on tv, in books, in movies…you get the picture.

  351. Krystal says:

    Fun! Sounds like a good one!

  352. Rochelle says:

    Love reading real mom books. Sounds like a good read.

  353. This is a TOTALLY non-crappy giveaway and I can’t wait to read it! I just started up my blog (again) and this made me realize I can add you to my blogs-to-read list. BTW, I loved the Crappy Baby Running Away post! Every time my daughter wants to run away, I tell her that we will miss her too much and will never stop crying when she’s gone – at which point she tell me that we can go with her. Next time I’m going to make sure she wants to run away to somewhere with room service.

  354. Amanda Hernandez says:

    Wow. Didn’t think of ever get to the end of all those comments to leave a comment. Whew!

  355. Kelsey S. says:

    It sounds fascinating! I’ll have to see if I can pick this one up somewhere.

  356. Amy says:

    Seriously? Who has time to read with kids? Guess what will be the bedtime story choice if i (I mean WE) win? 😉

  357. Megan says:

    Sounds interesting. I don’t enter these sorts of contests very often. Love your blog – thanks for making me laugh.

  358. Karla says:

    Sweet. I’ve heard good things about this book.

    This would be the first parenting book I own! Would love to start with such a winning collection!

  360. Susie says:

    Raised five, now gramma to five, would love to read this!

  361. I like to read! For, like, 30-seconds in the bathroom before someone starts screaming for me.

  362. Julius says:

    A frequent topic in our household, would love to read it!

  363. Nicole says:

    I can’t wait to read this book. Congrats Amber!!

  365. Erin says:

    Looks hilarious! 🙂

  366. Maureen says:

    That was probably me at Trader Joe’s. Ha ha – just kidding. Sounds like a great anthology of True Stories from the Trenches!

  367. Jody says:

    So many of us compare ourselves to other moms – me included. I think we should all remember we play for the same team and should do as mush as we can to help each other at this crazy game called Motherhood!

  368. Sally says:

    Looking forward to a good read :0)

  369. ktustl says:

    Can’t wait to read this whether I win or not!

    Love your blog! Thanks for sharing the book news- will keep an eye out for it in Canada! 🙂

  391. Jade says:

    The concept of this book made me think of the movie “Phoebe In Wonderland.” If you are close to any moms with special needs children, I strongly recommend it. We all have our flaws, but we do our very best to be good moms. Perfect is an impossibility. I’m excited to check out this book!

  392. Jen says:

    Oh awesome! Been looking forward to this book coming out since I found out another great blogger ( was a contributor as well. So cool!

  393. Lindsey says:

    Thanks for giving us the opportunity! Being a “good mother” is hard!!

  405. Amber says:

  425. Summer Sheldon says:

    Me me me!!!

  426. Emily says:

    Selfishly commenting hoping to win a book. I love your blog, in fact it’s the only blog I love! 🙂

  427. liz says:

    sounds amazing. I love real pictures of motherhood rather than the ones that have been played out to us for years.

  428. tyra says:

    Want this!!! Please 😛

  429. Brenda says:

    Even though my kid is grown, I love reading the crappy adventures of a crappy family! I have younger friends that are now having babies and I ALWAYS send them here for some real world information.

  430. Amber says:

    I’m excited to read this!

  431. CC says:

    Great giveaway!

  432. cecile says:

    I am a diamond mother so, of cours no Facebook no Twitter. And I am not sure what to do anyway to win 😉 or how it works.
    But hey, I am French and leave in Amsterdam, wouldn’t it be cool ifo send your great book here ???

  433. jessica says:

    looks great – hope i win!

  434. mrs. p says:

    So how many times CAN you bump your kid on the noggin (inadvertently of course) and still be a good mom? I need this book to know the answer!

  435. Therese M says:

    I totally love your blog – normalises the insanity that is motherhood – can only imagine that this book would be as therapeutic!!

  436. Delia says:

    I’m mostly done raising my 3 but love everything you have to say!

  437. Melissa Ewing says:

    This book sounds great!

  441. Jo says:

    Oh, I’d LOVE to win, sounds like a great book.

  442. Genevieve says:

    I’m very much looking forward to reading this (either a won copy or a library copy…which will probably get returned when my overdue amount is $12 or $13 as is my habit lol)! We put ourselves on such high pedestals that we end up knocking ourselves down when really ours is exactly the same height as everyone else’s! I felt TERRIBLE when I gave my kids canned sweet potatoes mixed with brown sugar, butter and chunks of turkey ham. Why? Cause the sweet potatoes were canned and the turkey ham was PRETTY processed. They didn’t die of it and in fact they loved it! Looking back it was not the lose/lose situation I thought it was. It’s funny the things we bat ourselves up about because it’s so hard to just believe in our abilities to be the parents our kids need us to be!

  443. Alex says:

    Sounds interesting. But now all I can think about is trader Joe’s chocolate. Mmmmmm.

  444. Kristen Jarvis says:

    I’m not even a mom and this book sounds awesome.

  445. I think I want to become best friends with you. LOL

  446. Sarah cantine says:

    That Trader Joe’s, has it all together, dressed in jeans not sweats, hair done mom… she is annoying and imaginary.

  490. Mikkismail says:

    You are so funny and I would adore reading about other “normal” moms. Though to be honest most of the reading will probably be done in the bathroom since that is the only time and place I can get any reading done!

  491. Doranna Benker Gilkey says:

    Reading other mother’s stories really helps me when I’m feeling so inadequate myself. I know I’m a great mom, but sometimes, I don’t.

  506. katie says:

    I like to know I’m not on a mom-island by myself. Also, on your TJ’s anecdote, I had a similar experience at Target, but not. When I was walking in, wearing workout clothes, wearing one baby and pushing another, I saw myself come out. Or someone who used to be me. She had great hair, dressed awesomely for her work day and had no smudges of anything anywhere on her person. And she was only carrying a person and 1 Target bag. It made me actually stop in front of the store and take a moment.

    • katie says:

      carrying a PURSE. not a person. One purse and 1 target bag. Geez. I can’t remember the last time I carried just a purse and any other bag.

  507. Jessica S says:
