Confessions of a Completely (In)Sane Mother by Kersten Campbell

Confessions of a Completely (In)sane Mother

This book is highly entertaining and indeed humorous. My only problem with the book came from my own discomfort at the realization of how much I had in common with the author. A couple of the chapters caused me extreme embarrassment and shame at my own lack of organizational skills. I laughed out loud over the zucchini chapter having tried to put several gargantuan zucchini "up for adoption" when I was a child. I wanted to cry with the author over the depth and breadth of disasters than can occur in one household (I probably have her beat in this category). I did enjoy this book thoroughly. I would not hesitate to share or recommend it to any mother who feels overwhelmed and overworked. To know that I am not alone is invaluable. The best consequence of reading this book was that I was finally motivated to clean out my church bag!
