The Mother of All Meltdowns by Crystal Ponti

Every mother, at some point, inevitably becomes her own worst enemy. In a millisecond, her halo crumbles and she has a moment so crazed it is forever known as the one�The Mother of All Meltdowns. The following anthology was written by women who have had their moments. Together we have experienced the anguish and frustration of the adult-sized tantrum. We have shed the tears, dropped to our knees in agony, and asked the age-old question, �Why me?� From poop-decorated rooms to having our liquid gold scrutinized and confiscated by TSA, we�re not afraid to share our collection of thirty tell-all stories. We are survivalists and know that within every meltdown there is a silver lining.

I had the pleasure and privilege of being contacted by Crystal to read and review this book.  I have to tell you, it is the best parenting read in a long time.  Most of the time, mothers are worried that they are the only ones out there that get upset, and get all crazy.  Totally not true.  In this book, there are stories of Moms who get real about the difficulties of being a parent.  Stay-at-home Moms, Working Moms, even grandmothers will get a belly laugh out of this book.  The most amazing thing about this book is the contributors brutally honesty about how it feels to be a Mom.  We think that we are the only ones out there that have ever felt this way, or gotten upset with their children.  We all have war stories of those first days alone at home.  My absolute favorite is the story by Andrea Moore entitled "Stranger Than Avocados".  We all have had that moment where our children have truly pushed us to the limits in the grocery store.  And we have all been that judgmental shopper that gives the meltdown "one of those eyebrows".  There is also a great chapter entitled "The Dirty Dozen" which has some practical tips that I wish someone had given me as a new, and experienced Mom.  All in all, The Mother Of All Meltdowns is a wonderful book, and I am so happy that I was able to review it.
