Book Review & Giveaway: No thanks, Mommy, I peed yesterday by Sandy Appleyard

No thanks, Mommy, I peed yesterday

By Sandy Appleyard

60 pages
Do you have kids? Do you sometimes want to send them to their bedroom until puberty? And other times, do you want to hug them until they burst?

What about those moments when they say something so innocent and incredibly cute or hilarious that you wish you had a pen and paper so you could remember it?

Well, that’s exactly what I did. My children have given my husband and I so many gifts, but the most precious has been laughter. I made a record of each funny or cute thing that they said since the moment they could speak.

It’s all here in this short yet unforgettable ‘Kids Say The Darndest Things’ style memoir.

No thanks, Mommy, I peed yesterday is a witty, side-splittingly funny comedy that can be enjoyed by both young and old.

The humorous comments, explanations, and kid-thoughts will stay with you for years to come!

Victoria was sporting a really cool pair of light-up shoes that she got for her birthday.

Victoria: “Mommy, are these shoes really cool? Do you wish you had a pair?”

Me: “Of course, I didn’t have shoes like that when I was a kid.”

Victoria: “Why? Because there was no electricity?”
I never quite understood what being a mommy was or the weird stuff I heard parents yelling until I became one. Our son will be three next month and I'm still baffled by many things he does...  the insistent need to watch the Mighty Machine's train episode again being one. The sweet hugs, beautiful hazel eyes, and "choo choo"s of Joe make it worthwhile though. It's amazing to watch your child grow up and especially when they develop speech...

In her lovely short, but sweet read, Sandy Appleyard, conveys the hilarity, frustration, and just plain weirdness of being a parent by reminiscing quotes of things her kiddos have said, asked, and answered. Highly recommend to anyone who works with or has children to be reminded of why we do what we do.

Sandy Appleyard writes both fiction and non-fiction: memoirs, self-help, suspense, romance and mystery/police-procedural.

When she isn’t writing books, she writes blogs, reads, exercises and obsessively cleans her house.

Sandy is also an animal lover and gives regularly to local Humane Societies. She lives in Niagara Falls,Canada with her husband, two daughters and her cat.
