Pressestimmen

“Get ready to ditch those Prada shoes (and anything else nice you own) and face reality--you haven't had a brutal boss until you've had a baby. Confessions of a Scary Mommy is hilariously, outrageously truthful about the hardest job I know. Put this book at the top of your diaper bag!” (Lauren Weisberger, New York Times bestselling author of The Devil Wears Prada, on Confessions of a Scary Mommy )

“Jill offers up the perfect antidote to overly earnest parenting guides. It's like comfort food for anxious moms, served with a side of snark.”

(Cynthia Copeland, author of The Diaper Diaries and Really Important Stuff My Kids Have Taught Me, on Confessions of a Scary Mommy )

“Jill has blown the lid off of what should and should not be said when discussing the experience of motherhood, using her sense of humor and the occasional “F-bomb” — and in doing so, Scary Mommy, has actually made motherhood a little bit less frightening… [Confessions of a Scary Mommy] dares to say the things most mothers have thought, but few have had the courage to admit.” (ABCnews.com on Confessions of a Scary Mommy )

"Smokler’s “scary mommy” version of motherhood makes no apologies, which is precisely why it succeeds ... If motherhood is starting to feel like a story without a plot, my advice is to pretend you’re sick and lock yourself in the bathroom with this book. Highly recommended." (Library Journal on Confessions of a Scary Mommy )

“Hilarious, brutal honesty about parenting.” (New York Times bestselling author Michael Ian Black on Confessions of a Scary Mommy )

“Funny . . . speaks the truths about motherhood when other mothers aren’t willing to admit it.” (Parenting on Jill Smoker's Scary Mommy blog )

“Any mother who doesn't stifle a million knowing laughs while reading Confessions of a Scary Mommy needs to make sure her funny bone wasn't accidentally sucked into the diaper genie.” (Julie Klam, New York Times bestselling author of You Had Me at Woof, on Confessions of a Scary Mommy )

“It’s the same kind of honest, heartfelt wisdom that has lured thousands of readers to Smokler’s Scary Mommy blog and given untold numbers of parents the comforting knowledge that they’re not alone.” (Baltimore Magazine on Confessions of a Scary Mommy )

“Thousands upon thousands of mothers grasp onto her every word.”

The Baltimore Sun on Jill Smokler’s groundbreaking blog

"If you need an irreverent, hysterical and oftentimes too-close-for-comfort look at motherhood, you need Scary Mommy." (The Huffington Post )

Kurzbeschreibung

From the New York Times bestselling author of Confessions of a Scary Mommy and the wildly popular blog ScaryMommy.com, a hilarious new essay collection that exposes the “vicious lies” that every parent is told.

Newly pregnant and scared out of her mind, Jill Smokler lay on her gynecologist’s examination table and was told the biggest lie she’d ever heard in her life: “Motherhood is the most natural thing in the world.”

Instead of quelling her nerves like that well intentioned nurse hoped to, Jill was instead set up for future of questioning exactly what DNA strand she was missing that made the whole motherhood experience feel less than natural to her. Wonderful? Yes. Miraculous? Of course. Worthwhile? Without a doubt. But natural? Not so much.

Jill’s first memoir, the New York Times bestseller Confessions of a Scary Mommy, rocketed to national fame with its down and dirty details about life with her three precious bundles of joy. Now Jill returns with all-new essays debunking more than twenty pervasive myths about motherhood. She’s here to give you what few others will dare: The truth.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Why You Need to Lock Yourself in Your Room and Read Jill Smokler's New Book! 9. April 2013
Von Jackie Hennessey - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Gebundene Ausgabe|Verifizierter Kauf
I received a small package in the mail and it made me grin from ear to ear. Surprisingly, it was NOT a pound of chocolate. It was NOT an airline ticket. And although it was an adorable shade of blue, it was NOT a new pair of spring sandals.

IT IS an all-new book written by my friend and fellow author, Jill Smokler. After the kids went to bed, I pulled a bottle of beer from the fridge, ripped open the box and devoured Motherhood Comes Naturally: And Other Vicious Lies in a matter of hours. Like having drinks with a childhood friend, this book makes you nod in agreement and cackle out loud. This little blue book by Jill Smokler single-handedly debunks more than 20 myths about motherhood, giving you what few others will dare: The truth. With enough Scary Mommy sarcasm sprinkled in to keep you laughing.

From the New York Times best-selling author of Confessions of a Scary Mommy and the popular blog ScaryMommy.com, Jill has written a hilarious new essay collection that exposes the "vicious lies" that every parent is told.

Newly pregnant and scared out of her mind, Jill Smokler lay on her gynecologist's examination table and was told the biggest lie she'd ever heard in her life: "Motherhood is the most natural thing in the world."

Instead of quelling her nerves like that well intentioned nurse hoped to, Jill was instead set up for future of questioning exactly what DNA strand she was missing that made the whole motherhood experience feel less than natural to her. Wonderful? Yes. Miraculous? Of course. Worthwhile? Without a doubt. But natural? Not so much.

All I can say is, you need to read this book.

If you wish you could give a eulogy to your pre-baby body...you need to lock yourself in your room and read this book.

If you wish someone would come out and say what's really on their mind without fear of being de-friended by every mother you know on Facebook.... you need to lock yourself in your room and read this book.

If your children are driving you crazy and you wouldn't dare drown your stresses away in a Betty Draper-style mid-day Martini....you need to lock yourself in your room and read this book.

God bless this woman, I promise you will giggle yourself to sleep, thanking her for writing out loud (and in her familiar Scary Mommy way) what many moms really think but are too afraid to admit.

Warning - this book is not appropriate for children or mothers who lack a sense of humor.

5.0 von 5 Sternen It'll make you pee in your pants! Or the toilet. 11. April 2013
Von Baby Sideburns - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Gebundene Ausgabe
Aggggh, I can't even write this review without being interrupted because my F'ing rugrat won't stay in her bed. I just put the lock on her door so hopefully this time I can finish typing. Yeah, there I said it, the lock on her door. I can say that because I've read Scary Mommy's new book and now I know that all of the thoughts I have about my kids are normal. Well, maybe not normal, but at least I know that I'm not the only person on earth who's having them. She tells it like it is. That motherhood isn't all unicorns s***ting gumdrops (how's that for an image?).

I think the line in the book that sums it all up is:

"My rule of thumb: if you don't know what a labia is, then you shouldn't wear clothes that expose yours to the rest of us."

Well, technically it doesn't sum it all up, but it's pretty damn funny. And there are like a million lines that'll have you peeing in your pants. Unless you're like me and the only way you can ever read is by locking yourself in the bathroom, in which case it'll have you peeing in the toilet. How convenient.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Swallow That Diet Coke Before Reading "Motherhood Comes Naturally" 9. April 2013
Von Anne Flournoy - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Gebundene Ausgabe
I live to laugh. And Jill Smokler (AKA Scary Mommy) has a new book out which is a cause for celebration: Motherhood Comes Naturally made me howl. In the same way that John Stewart and Stephen Colbert can give you a stomach cramp laughing about very real and serious stuff, Motherhood Comes Naturally rips the cover off the secrets of motherhood and by extension, the mental health of the people who are still, for the most part, raising the future of the human race.

Smokler covers a lot of territory, unmasking the myth that everybody else innately knows how to do this and is doing it right. With a hard-boiled hilarity that rings true on every page, she gives the low-down on what we all know is going on but refuse to accept, blaming ourselves and our real and imagined inadequacies, while secretly figuring that everyone else is somehow avoiding going through this particular circle of hell.

There are bullet-point charts which I warn you to swallow that Diet Coke before reading: Tips for Mortifying Your Children (Talk in made-up foreign accents to their friends.) and on Decoding Momspeak (Oh dear, (s)he's quite a character! / Your kid is a brat.)" and a particularly hilarious one on The Tragic Evolution of Motherhood.

It's a very visual book and I suspect that we'll be seeing the movie soon in a theatre near you. There's dialogue for whole scenes and the hilarious voice-over of a woman, ground into surrender and acceptance of the fact of her indentured servitude: "I didn't expect that at thirty-five years old I would be watching commercials for Depends with sincere curiosity." In one passage, Smokler describes herself, hunched forward, smiling bravely in the suicide seat of the shopping mall's van, her three kids under four buckled into the back while the elderly security guard motors around the mall parking lot, looking for the car she's too sleep-deprived to find on her own.

If it isn't already, I bet this'll soon be the must-have Mother's Day AND baby-shower present: a shiny blue, gem-like manual which will help to maintain sanity, a sense of humor and more than a shred of self-esteem ... at least until the kids get into high school.

5.0 von 5 Sternen How do you know you are a Scary Mommy? 10. April 2013
Von L. Read - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Gebundene Ausgabe|Verifizierter Kauf
Are YOU a Scary Mommy?

Do you:
1) Never have the chance to have bowel movements in privacy?
2) Do cheerios or small plastic objects fall out of your clothing at random moments?
3) Do you rely on coffee in the morning and/or wine in the evening to make it through the day?
4) Have you fought, begged, cajoled, or otherwise attempt to corral tiny terrorist-like people who barely reach your waist?
5) Have you finally come to the realize that MOTHERHOOD IS EXTREMELY HARD!?!?!?!

If you answered YES to any one of these....YOU TOO are a Scary Mommy, and Jill Smokler's new book will have you rolling on the ground laughing. This book is not for the mother afraid to admit her own faults, and certainly not for those who think there is a "right" way to do everything. This book is for all the women out there who fully understand that motherhood is HARD, that raising children is not just a job, but a way of life that can be your biggest joy, and your largest challenge all at the same time.

By cleverly weaving personal anecdotes with basic "truths" and community confessions, Smokler aptly tells the story of the modern mom- overworked, over-pressured, over-exerted, but both capable and confused all at the same time. Smokler tells the story of so many of us out there, and allows us to laugh not only at her own stories, but also at our own. Failure becomes triumph as you realize...yes...your kid DID just leave through the day. And that right there? That is a mommy win.

Cheers to Smokler for truly making motherhood more honest, more realistic, and way, way more hilarious.

5.0 von 5 Sternen The REAL truth! 9. April 2013
Von Avid Reader - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Gebundene Ausgabe|Verifizierter Kauf
WARNING: this book is NOT for the faint of heart, the queasy, or those of us with poor bladder control after childbirth, so grab your Poise pads and start reading!

Motherhood Comes Naturally (and other vicious lies) is roll on the floor funny!!! This is the down and dirty truth of being a mom: it's NOT always hugs, kisses, and smiles; it's quite often screams, poop and puke everywhere, no sleep, no personal time, never ending 24/7 365 hilarity.

If you aren't laughing at the mishaps of being a mom, then read the book and re-locate your funny bone because being a mom is the best thing in the world, DESPITE all the lies...and NO NO NO, it DOES NOT come naturally!

Just had one of those "moments:" can't even have five minutes to write this review, so I'd better get back to my reading! Is it vain that the first thing I did on opening the book was to go through and look for MY confessions?
