'Earthy, matter-of-fact, and simply hilarious.' - Midwest Book Review
When Dallas Louis decided that all she wanted was to meet and marry her Prince Charming and become a mom, she had no idea what was in store for her. But she would soon find out. After only seven months of dating the love of her life, she married him, and within the course of twenty-six months, she gave birth to three children. Her husband knew her longer pregnant than not pregnant!
In this laugh-out-loud book, Dallas shares highlights of what happened in her world once all her dreams came true. She would like readers to find comfort in knowing they aren't the only ones suffering from post-traumatic stress disorder or buyer's remorse. And, yes, it's okay to admit that both of these conditions apply to parenting, though hopefully not all the time.
Channeling Erma Bombeck, Dallas will tell you the things your friends won't and the things other books are too afraid to print. With her irreverent humor and brash "tell it like it is" style, she'll help you laugh at everyday situations, easing the pressure of the toughest job in the world: being a mom.
