The Mother of All Meltdowns!

Every mother, at some point, inevitably becomes her own worst enemy. In a millisecond, her halo crumbles and she has a moment so crazed it is forever known as the one…The Mother of All Meltdowns.

Today, I’m excited to tell you about a new book call just that…The Mother of All Meltdowns.


I’m certain you’ve experienced your own meltdown. I know I have. You can’t predict when it will come, except that, it will probably be at the worst time e-ver.

This books lets you know, you are not alone!

Written by 30 moms who have experienced the worst of the worst, it’s a great read.

And, it makes a great gift for a new mom.

Remember those days?

I do…

My first son was colicky. Cried for hours everyday. His first day care provider called me at work to tell me she’d have to charge me $10 extra per week because he cried so much. Not kidding.

Of course, I left immediately from work, picked him up and never went back again. What is $10 really going to do to help you cope with a crying baby??

My worst meltdown with his crying though was when I put him in the middle of our queen-size bed, surrounded by pillows, and went to the basement to cry myself. My only companion, my dog. Who licked my face as I wept.

I wish I would have had this book than – when I couldn’t believe people actually had more than one child. Why?

The Mother of All Meltdowns, lets you know…you’re not alone!

I also love the reaction of the husbands when these meltdowns occur. It may not be what you think.

For example, what does Lisa’s husband do when her birth “plan” does not go according to plan and she has a complete meltdown?

a. Leave the hospital

b. Tell her to hold own because he’s getting stomach pains from the coffee he had earlier

c. Support her literally and figuratively

Or, what does Jennifer’s husband do when their son takes apart their old dryer and breaks the glass (who even knew that was actually glass?), then locks her out of the out house pushing her to a complete meltdown?

a. Explain to her why it was her fault it happened

b. Clean up the mess while she leaves the scene

c. Have a sandwich while she cleans up the mess

Or what about Dana’s husband? What does he do when their daughter has crying fit at the happiest place on earth which causes Dana to literally break down into meltdown rage?

a. Yell at her in Disney for not acting appropriately

b. Talk to her daughter patiently without making Dana feel badly about her meltdown

c. Go on a few rides until the smoke clears

And one more for good measure. What does Tamara’s husband do when she accidentally flushes her beautiful wedding ring down the toilet with her daughter’s first poop?

a. Make her wear a twist-tie as her wedding band.

b. Check the house until they are sure the wedding band is actually flushed

c. Withhold all gifts for three years until the new wedding band is fully paid for

What do you think?
