The Meltdown - The Giveaway

mommy meltdownsSo remember that book that I co-authored with 29 other super awesome mom bloggers where we all dug down deep and wrote about our not-so-finest moments?  Well I'd love to giveaway a copy to one of you awesome readers.

You'll want to win this book because it's totally relatable.  It's like sharing stories with your best girlfriends over a cup of coffee, or more than likely if you're at my house, a glass of wine. It's all about honesty.  Our children, while adorable, can really drive you to drink because that's their job and every now and then even the coolest of cool moms can really loose her ish if you know what I mean.

So if you'd love to read the book you can buy it on Amazon, on your nook, kindle, or Barnes and Noble or you can win it here.


a Rafflecopter giveaway

Winners will have 48 hours to respond before a new winner is chosen.  Good luck!

Since of one of those mommy's having a very real meltdown, I suppose I shouldn't enter. Here's to hoping the winner will love the book as much as I do.

I, too, love how you went back and told the woman exactly how you felt! I had this happen many years ago and just suffered in silence in for days. :)

One of my meltdowns was me wanting to quit college five times, but overcoming it each time. Still not graduated yet, but I am still hanging in there trying to raise my family the best I can

I have meltdowns on a regular basis. Perimenopause is no joke. My moods can change in the blink of an eye!

A mommy meltdown or a personal meltdown?
I'm usually ready to let that smart-ass who doesn't have kids, have mine for a week...then let them tell me how to raise children.

Meltdowns occur all the time! We're all supposed to be Super Moms now, right? We have to do it all...So sometimes when I feel like there's way too much on my plate, I'll freak out, of course.

I have had several meltdowns within the last year or so. I have major medical issues, and my son is autistic. I married a teacher, and he and I are great, but I usually lose it with my son. One time my son was misbehaving by touching other boys inappropriately. We have had experiences where family members were reported and taken away for similar behaviors. I panicked. I took my son in the bathroom, kicked him hard in the groin and asked him if he liked it. After he said no, I told him I would take everything he owned if he ever did anything like that again. This is after talking, and other consequences, and I was at my wits end. My husband told me I would have left him if he had done the same thing. I then proceeded to have a panic attack and became quite hysterical. The best part is this all happened at my son's theater class.

It was stepping in a pool of cat vomit for the 6th time in 8 hours....I just lost it.

Lesley said...

my meltdown was walking into a incredibly cluttered house that had been spotless before i left for work. my poor husband got an earful :)

Cassandra Kelton said...

We live on a tight budget... TIGHT. Occasionally I will cry to my fiancé about how I hate being poor and everything sucks. Good to get it out once in a while. Still wouldn't trade time with my daughter for more money though!

Tara Carlson said...

I hate to admit it, but after one VERY challenging evening with my infant son, I laid him down to change his diaper and he started crying as soon as I put him down... so I mimicked his crying back at him. In a convenient turn of events, that startled him out of his crying fit and actually made him laugh, so it worked out for everyone!
