I bought this book thinking it was like a manual about marriage and parenting, but thank God it wasn't! I don't think I've ever laughed so much at a book in my life! Lynn Connolly deserves to be a bestseller because her book is beyond funny. I hope she writes another soon! Anyone who enjoys a laugh will be in heaven with this book. At first you think it's another do it right book, but it isn't, it's real, it's funny, and it's one of those books you'd read when you're fed up and need a good laugh. I've told all my friends about it and they've all said the same. Buy it!

Had one of those moments? As a mother of a 9, 8, 4, 2, and 1 year old, I feel your pain. My goal is to create, with my sisters in motherhood, a gift quality book that can be given to any mom to help her realize she’s not alone. We’re all constantly laughing at our situations, but often have no other adult to share our stories with or the time to reflect on the events of any given day.
Re-live your funniest mom misadventure in descriptive and emotional words . As in, been there, felt that crazy!. Stories should be between 400 and 1500 words in length. All stories must be true, but also hard to believe!
Misadventures of Moms is published by Moms In Print. The anthology is non-paying for contributors; but $1.00 of each sale from the first edition is being donated to the Susan G. Komen Foundation to fight breast cancer. The same donation is planned to be made for second edition sales.
Deadline for second edition submissions: May 30th, 2004
Lynn: I would be delighted if you considered submitting an archived piece for this collection!
