Book Details:
Feeling under appreciated, Mom? Mothers everywhere will relate to this author’s attempt to stay sane while trying to raise righteous, successful children. In Confessions of a Cereal Mother, popular author Rachel McClellan provides an insightful and sometimes hilarious view of a mother’s journey as she tackles everyday situations such as getting her children ready for school or going on vacation.
You’ll discover many useful tips, such as:

-Don’t throw your pregnancy test away before the full three minutes is up.
-Unless there is a rush on the grocery store pending a zombie-virus outbreak, never take your kids shopping.
-If your toddler is going to chew on a Band-Aid, hope that it’s one found inside the chlorinated community swimming pool and not one found in their locker room.
-And most important, the moment one of your children is seriously ill, forget about everything else and be a mom—you have the greatest honor in the world.

Mothers everywhere will relate to this author’s attempt to stay sane while trying to raise righteous, successful children.

My Review:
I haven't laughed so hard from a book in a very long time!
I LOVE the sub-title:  True Stories to Let Every Mother Know She's Not Alone in the Craziness
You will LAUGH, you will CRY, and if you are a mom you will UNDERSTAND!

Filled with stories of being a mom and all that goes into that from the bad to the good, from the ugly to the beauty, this book will help you understand the five-letter word called ~ Mommy.

About the Author:
Once upon a time, in a wonderful and carefree world, Rachel McClellan fell asleep in a warm and spacious bed, her long hair in great locks around her, and not a single blemish upon her face. Outside her window, bluebirds sang and the cloudless blue sky was full of promise.

However, when she awoke she discovered gum in her now ratted hair, a tiny, chocolate fingerprint smeared across her forehead, and four very wiggly children crowding her bed. There were no bluebirds singing outside her window (or perhaps she couldn’t hear them anymore), only a tornado, pulsing with thunder and lightening. Her world was in chaos, a raging storm on all fronts.

But what a perfect storm it was…
I love ranch dressing, the homemade kind. It makes everything taste better. Coming in a close second are Mayo and real butter. Second, I want to buy Willy Wonka’s Chocolate Factory and turn it into a sauce factory using the items I mentioned above. And I’d keep the Oompa-Loompas. I can tell by looking at them that they like the sauces as much as I do. Third, I would bring to life some of my favorite literature characters, such as Odd Thomas, Dr. Jekyll (Hyde can come too), Frankenstein, Elizabeth Bennett, and Sherlock Holmes (because someone’s sure to die in this crowd), to break bread and dip the pieces into my Oompa-Loompa sauces.

A few other random things you may or may not want to know: I’m a member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Later Day Saints, aka Mormon. I love to run. I love music just as much, dark, moody stuff. I love my TV shows, dark, moody stuff. I currently live in the New England area and am obsessed with its forests and cemeteries. I am married and have four young children. They are just as strange as I am, but they love the sauces, so we get along. I like sports. I especially love to play volleyball and racquetball. One day I’d like to get back into theater. And run for President. Of the world. But above all…I love to write.
