Are You Kidding Me? Is A Best Friend That Fits In Your Bag

Gustafson_Cover_FRONT_reduced (2)When you are in the trenches of motherhood surrounded by kids, chaos and fluctuating hormones the most important thing to know is you aren’t the only one suffering. Misery loves company like a woman love shoes.

Do you ever lie awake at night thinking, “Surely these crazy things don’t just happen to me? Are there others that dread parent teacher conferences, unintentionally turn Spanx into thigh tourniquets and get shunned by their first born on college move in day?”

Stacey Gustafson’s book Are You Kidding Me? My Life With An Extremely Loud Family, Bathroom Calamities and Crazy Relatives is just the handbook you need to validate you are not alone.

It’s like reading your best friend’s diary. You will tear up when her daughter rushes her off during move in day and then you will almost pee your pants when she gets stuck trying to get into her first pair of Spanx and makes the tough decision in a bathroom stall to go commando and stuff them in her purse. I ask who amongst us has not at one time or another had panties in our purse?

Stacey’s stories are the trifecta of talent: funny, heart warming and sarcastic. She’s the best friend and therapist that you carry in your bag or on your Kindle and pull her out when you need her.

The very funny Stacey Gustafson is an author, humor columnist, and blogger. Her book, Are You Kidding Me? My Life With An Extremely Loud Family, Bathroom Calamities, and Crazy Relatives is available on Amazon and Kindle. Click here to purchase on Amazon.
