#ThrowbackThursday I Had “write a parenting book” on my to-do list

Fortunately I forgot to do this and now the idea bores me but you have to admit these titles I came up with a couple of years ago are brilliant. The third one is my favorite. 


I’m thinking about writing a parenting book because there simply aren’t enough of them and everyone would benefit from my wizened experience and success at raising two young men. I should probably write a book about successful heterosexual marriage, too. I did such a great job with that. Such a great job I did it twice. Here’s the top five titles I’m considering:
Mommy’s Busy Having a Nervous Breakdown
Because I Said So
Hold My Cigarette While I Spank Your Brother
I’m Mean Because You Ruined My Body
You Can’t Watch Barney Because Elmo Killed Him


I’ll be anxious to hear what y’all think. Make sure you type your comments in all caps and use a lot of abbreviations if you have failed to grasp the satire of this post.

About Laura

When my nest emptied I moved from the big city to a little big town to tend to a ramshackle yellow house on the edge of town. These are my Yellow House Days.

    Here are the ones I could write ~
    “I’ve Never Had One Myself But I’m Sure I Could Do It Better Than You”
    “Stop Whingeing, It Can’t Be That Hard”
    “Where Did You Say You’ve Got Stitches?”


  2. Hahaha! I loved them all but #3 is my favorite! How about “They’re still breathing Aren’t they”, “10 Ways To Insure Your Child Will Need A Therapist”. What fun! Glad you’re feeling better!
