Non-Crappy Book Review, I Just Want To Pee Alone

So I thought I’d take a break from talking about my own book and talk about someone else’s book today. You know, spread the love around a bit. (I haven’t been that annoying about my book, have I? Don’t answer that.) 

Whose book? Only like a truckload of funny bloggers.

The truckload got together and wrote I Just Want to Pee Alone. Jen from People I Want to Punch in the Throat drove the truck and picked up how many bloggers to contribute? 37? Wow, that really is a lot. Anyway, it is a collection of funny mom essays. And funny it is.

Jen sent me a copy so I sat down on the couch a couple nights ago and read the whole thing.

Remember Susan from Divine Secrets of a Domestic Diva? The one wearing a pink unitard from this collaborative post we did together? She is in it.

When I got to her story in the book, I had to read a line to Crappy Papa because I kept laughing and he wanted to know what I was laughing about.


Course he had no idea what I was talking about. Just like you don’t right now.

See, that is the trouble with writing about a book like this. I’d love to tell you all my favorite parts. Like the part about the elephant, squirting your hoo-ha, shit central, cookie smacking, cougars, bubble baths, funeral ashes, pregnancy denial, poop eating, traveling in first class, number of kids scorecard, Mickey Mouse ice cream bars and enemas but then I’d be giving the milk away for free and I wouldn’t do that to this cow. This cow is worth it. Mooooo! Get it right here.

Some of my favorite funny mom bloggers contributed to this book. Like these gals:

(In addition to Jen & Susan from above) Kim from Let Me Start By Saying, Teri from Snarkfest, Tara from You Know it Happens at Your House Too, Andrea from Underachiever’s Guide to Being a Domestic Goddess, Karen from Baby Sideburns, Rebecca from Frugalista Blog, Patti from Insane in the Mom-Brain,  Julianna from Rants from Mommyland, Nicole from Ninja Mom Blog and 26 more. That is a lot of funny packed into one book.

Here is the link again to I Just Want to Pee Alone. You know you want it. They had you at the title, right?



By the way, my book and this book like to hang out together. No really, they get along really well. Especially in the bathroom. Just sayin’. (You know I had to slip it in there at some point, right?)

  16. Jen says:

    I’m saving both books for a girl trip to Vegas in May (requires a lot of restraint). I can’t wait to be the loud laughing lady sitting pool side (in the shade, of course) enjoying her books and a sports bottle full of daiquiri.

  17. I feel like our book is finally legit now that it’s been crappified. Thanks a million for the review!

  30. Lisa says:

    Thanks for the suggestion, always looking for books to read!

  31. teagansmomma says:

    Kudos on your Bloggie Award !

  32. I love a good crappy review 🙂 Thank you so much for the love and I am mid-crappy book. I have to stop every-so-often to rest my out-of-shape abs thanks to the laughter. Many thanks and here is to great success!!! xo

  33. Ninja Mom says:

    Wow, lady. Thanks!

    Not only do I suddenly feel much cooler than I did before reading your review, I also pre-ordered your book on Kindle, so by tomorrow I will feel cooler and more laughy.

    I should mention I’m high on Sudafed. Does this comment make me look stoned?

    Seriously, thanks for the review and for the mention. I’m really flattered you like the book.

  34. Noey says:

    IJWTPA is completely hilarious. I may have done the one click order/pay/have it delivered to my Kindle thing when it came out. I’ll get yours on my Kindle, too, when I’m less broke. (My kid’s science fair project ate all my money.)

  35. Thank you for the review and the craptastic pictures to go along with it. xoxo

  36. Charlene says:

    Are these books available only in the states? I have been looking for both in stores here to no avail.

    I ordered your book along with “I just want to pee alone” on your recommendation for my wife. We both religiously follow your blog and she swears you get some of your stories from spying on us. Anyway, we got them both last night and I’m half way thru IJWTPA and my wife hasn’t let me touch your book yet.
