Motherhood Comes Naturally Pub Day!


Someday, I will get through every tweet and every message and every text and every Facebook post and every missed call and thank you each of you personally for your support. But because I can barely keep my eyes open, it won’t be tonight. Until then, an enormous mass thank you to every person who bought the book, spread the word, shared my excitement and supported me today. From the bottom of my heart, thank you. 

In case you missed them, here are the Today Show clips. The first one is from the eight o’clock hour where I took questions from Today fans who seemed to think I was some sort of parenting expert. Um… sorry folks!


And then the ten o’clock hour where Kathie Lee once again proved to be a huge Scary Mommy fan

She can barely contain her excitement. Also? I’m pretty sure she was wasted.

I did find Matt in the green room and demand that he take a picture with me. He looks a tad frightened as well.

Maybe it was the random sketchy guy behind me my bodyguard who scared them.

(Best freeze frame ever.)

But, really, it was a blast. Thanks again for the good wishes and for tuning in!

    Saw you on the show at 840. It was hilarious! Those poor people. I pre-ordered the book and it looks like it’ll be delivered to me on Thursday. It’s always a pleasure to support you, Jill!

    Yay for the little (and HUGE, #67??!?) things in life!!! We love you Jill, screw Kathie Lee. She’s an uptight bitch. Too bad for her she has no sense of humor.

    So excited about the new book and so happy for you!

    OK I get that this isn’t the point but YOU LOOK FABULOUS. Seriously – hair, makeup, the whole package. Also you speak SO WELL on camera. No nervous ticks (like…um…well), no awkward hand gestures. You look like a pro. I mean it!

    WooHoo… how stinkin’ exciting. I would totally flip if I got to be on the Today show, esp. with KLG and Hoda.
    Enjoy every last minute of your stardom, you deserve it. Congratulations.

      Wasn’t she horrible? She has totally lost touch with what it’s like to be in the trenches of motherhood. OR she had nannies for the tough stuff? Ugh. But, Jill handled her like a pro!

    I devoured the book today while ignoring my children. Loved it, even more than the first, which I never thought I’d say. Congrats – couldn’t be happier for you!!!

    You did GREAT! I LOVE you! I LOVE the clips! And I LOVE how it bad it made Kathie Lee look. I realize that she wants to appear perfect, but I bet that she hides in the shower to eat a Snickers just like the rest of us!( A snickers…a bag of snickers…whatever).

    So I watched you this morning, the first interview (DVR’d it in fact so I can watch it again LOL) and you’re AWESOME. I just now watched the clip with Kathie Lee and ugh. I dislike her even more now. Someone should dislodge the stick from her ass. >_< Could she BE any more RUDE?? It's not like she parented her kids anyway, I'm sure she had a nanny for her precious kids. ugh. I can't figure out why NBC keeps her on, she's so RUDE to every guest on the show, especially if they dare be real people.

    Anyway, you did an AWESOME job Jill!!! As always, you're keeping it real, making sure we all know we're not alone out here!! Keep it up, my dear!!!

    You rock!! And I so cannot wait to read your new book.

    And yes, playdates are awful. I even cringe at the word playdate. Can’t it just be, “Hey I’m going to McDonalds, wanna join my kid?” But then again, most parents would be all, “Le gasp! NOT McDonalds! Think of all the fats and the oils!” Parenting in 2013 is exhausting, yo.
