Motherhood May Cause Drowsiness: A Momoir


Confessions of a Scary Mommy meets Chicken Soup for the Soul in this “momoir” anthology by 40 mom lit and parent humor bloggers!

MOTHERHOOD May Cause Drowsiness: Funny Stories by Sleepy Moms is now available.

“Sleep when the baby sleeps.” That’s what they always tell expectant mothers.


What they neglect to share is that sleep will never be the same again. So a group of sleepy moms banded together to share some of our most humorous stories – behind the editing prowess of Lisa Nolan.

Motherhood May Cause Drowsiness is a collection of “momoir” written by 40 mom lit/parent humor bloggers who blog to keep their sanity. Momoir is a mom lit/parent humor blog post combined with the elements of memoir, creative nonfiction, and the conversational style, immediacy, humor, and ranting of a mom blogger.

Ultimately, we are here to make you laugh, shed a tear or two, and feel connected to other moms who are going through the struggles of everyday life with children: a messy house, boredom, cabin fever, depression, guilt, anxiety, drinking, self-doubt, elation, joy, laughter, love, and happiness. And although we live in different parts of the world, in different houses (and we have different hair styles), we have one common thread: WE DON’T GET ENOUGH SLEEP! Welcome to our world, and yours!

I am honored to have one of my tales included in this anthology amid some seriously awesome writers. (They think I’m a humor blogger! My mission here is complete!)

Check out the grand adventures of Search and Destroy as they lead a naptime rebellion in a way only possible the muppets you’ve come to know and love. (It involves poop.)

Forget sleeping when the baby sleeps. Embrace the insomnia caused by not being able to put a book down. Discover some hilarious new writers.

Order your copy now. And don’t miss page 183. Because I’m published. In a real book!

Think I’m crazy? You’re on point. I’m excited to note I’ll also be featured in the upcoming anthology, “Surviving Mental Illness Through Humor.” (Maybe there is something to that humor blogger label.)
