Welcome to Mommy Land. Meet the Mean Moms of Hysteria Lane.
So I wrote Mommy Land, a satirical look at new motherhood which focused on the mean moms I met while pregnant with my first child. I also included a few of the run-ins I had throughout the pregnancy of my second child. Sadly I could only fit a handful of those competitive moms in the book. And while I didn't name names, I did give them names. I introduced new moms across the country to the mean moms on Hysteria Lane; including my favorite -- Breastfeeding Betty who gave me the Scarlet Letter B for bottle feeding my daughter after a few weeks.
Mommy Land came out in November 2005 and I received rave reviews from moms and critics alike. One of my favorite chick lit authors even gave me an endorsement! But then vicious criticism came in .... Not just about Mommy Land but about me and my children (and even the way I look!). Bugaboo Beth actually tried to get me to move out of Manhattan. Run me out of my own neighborhood.
Well, that's not going to happen. Although I tell new moms on a daily basis to "Beware of Mean Moms", I am not afraid of them or their insane attempts to ostracize my daughter from the birthday parties they also attend.
Here's your chance to read what the mean moms don't want you to know exists when you become a new mother. Because the cliques we thought we left behind in high school still exist and they are taking over the playground!
I have a deal for all of you nice moms out there:
If you are one of the first 250 people to purchase a copy of my book, Mommy Land (Entering the Insanity of Motherhood) through this website ($17 - includes USPS priority shipping) before July 15th, I'll throw in a tank (pictured below) for FREE as long as you promise to wear the shirt proudly. You don't have to write down the promise and no one will be watching to make sure you wear the shirt instead of using it as a burp cloth; but by wearing it you will be doing your part to educate new mothers.
And if any of you run your own online business and want to help educate new mothers by sending bookmarks promoting Mommy Land with your website orders, email me and I will add your site to the nice moms list below and send out the bookmarks to you today.
Even better, email me a picture of yourself wearing your shirt (with or without your child in the photo) and I will add your photo to the nice moms photo gallery. We nice moms have to stick together!
