Do you have any idea how hard it’s been for me to keep this a secret?? I mean, I am amazing with secrets about real-life-super-important stuff but THIS. Is. Too. Much. I have wanted to just blab it and blab it and blab it.
But I haven’t.
I have waited.
I have been patient. And now I get to tell you. But first, I need a few more lines of text so that all you people on Facebook can’t CHEAT and just read the first few lines and see the title. Nope. I’m gonna make you click a link. Don’t be lazy. It’s just one click for crying out loud.
That should do it.
DRUMROLL PLEASE… (BRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRR!! I don’t know how to type how a drumroll sounds. Obvs.)
Ketchup Is A Vegetable And Other Lies Moms Tell Themselves
BOOM! Fireworks! YAAAAAAAY! Who’s excited?! THIS GIRL!
If you read the blog or my columns, you can expect more stories about motherhood, my family and a little about faith– but also, y’all– I talk about lady bits A LOT. It’s sort of Robin Gone WILD and it’s less censored than anything else I’ve ever published either online or in print.
Which may explain why I have been stress eating chocolate and breathing into a brown paper bag seven to twelve times a day– it’s more me. I was trying to explain to Rachel Hawkins, a writer friend who had been there, done that, how I felt and she said, “Yes! You feel like you are about to be IN YOUR PANTIES ON THE INTERNETS!” And I was like, “Yes! THAT exactly!”
Because I am going to be naked in front of y’all. (Lord, I can’t wait to see the spammers I get out of this post.) I’m showing you more of who I am, exposing more of my weaknesses and making a lot of jokes about genitals. Hey– you have kids and you have to talk about body parts a lot. Like a lot, a lot. (A lot. Prepare yourselves.)
I’m excited and I’m scared and that’s the truth. I was telling Zeb how I felt and he said, “Well, just remember– I’ve seen you naked before and I like it a lot.”
The book is funny so unlike if you were to ever ACTUALLY see me nekkid? Pointing and laughing is highly recommended.
Release date is scheduled for November 12, 2011. Check back for more updates.
