Praise for the book…
“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. . . . Put this book at the top of your diaper bag.” — Lauren Weisberger, #1 New York Times bestselling author of The Devil Wears Prada
“Any mother who doesn’t stifle a million knowing laughs . . . needs to make sure her funny bone wasn’t accidentally sucked into the diaper genie.” — Julie Klam, New York Times bestselling author
“Jill has blown the lid off what should and should not be said when discussing the experience of motherhood. . . . [She] dares to say the things that most mothers have thought, but few have had the courage to admit.” —ABCnews.com
“A spot on hysterical look into the world of mommyville. Had me nodding my head in agreement and holding myself like a restless toddler because I didn’t want to put it down. Which, I do not recommend since you may actually pee yourself.” — Baby Center
“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
“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
“If you need an irreverent, hysterical and oftentimes too-close-for-comfort look at motherhood, you need Scary Mommy.” — The Huffington Post
