Stop feeling like sh*t for being a mom—laugh-out-loud affirmations for every parent
Guess what? This “parenting book” is not designed to make new parents feel bad. Authors and co-hosts of the popular comedy podcast One Bad Mother, Biz Ellis and Theresa Thorn, know firsthand that raising kids is tough. They also know that, most likely, parents are winning more than they’re failing. This book reminds parents that it’s okay to have a low bar. Celebrate what did happen, not what didn’t, including gems such as:
- Did you get up this morning? Great! You’re doing an awesome job!
- Your kid fell asleep? Even if it was just for two hours, that’s amazing. Good job!
- Has your kid eaten? That’s probably your doing, so yeah, you’re a winner!
The perfect gift for the growing family, You Are Doing a Great Job! is the much-needed reminder to screw all expectations and advice. It belongs on the shelf next to Go the Fu*k to Sleep and Let’s Panic About Babies. Or better yet, tear out the pages and hang them up.
