While preparing to give birth to her first daughter, actress Jenna von Oy, known for her roles as Six on Blossom and Stevie on The Parkers, looked for a book, a best-friend’s guide to motherhood. But what she found were clinical guides to pregnancy and beyond. She addressed that with Situation Momedy: A First-Time Mom’s Guide to Laughing Your Way through Pregnancy & Year One.
Now entrenched in the toddler years with her two daughters, she knows that each year of motherhood brings even more comedy and chaos! Situation Momedy: A Very Special Episode in Toddlerdom is an introduction to the adventures a mom can look forward to as her child moves into toddlerhood. A few chapter examples are “This Is a Test of the Emergency Tantruming System,” “Potty Training . . . It’s a Crap Shoot,” “Working & Harried with Children,” and “Independence Day Isn’t Just a National Holiday.”
Filled with the humor and reassurance only a best friend can offer, this book will guide moms through the topsy-turvy world of life with toddlers. Hang on to your hats, and get ready for Situation Momedy: A Very Special Episode in Toddlerdom.
