Friends with Books

A flashback to August 2007.

The little dude was examining the letters on my t-shirt and started spelling them out.

Toddler: M-O-M
Mama: (smile)

Toddler: I-N-A-T-R-I-X
Mama: Hmmmmm.

Toddler: What's that?
Mama: It's a picture of, uh, bracelets.

Toddler: With a key!



Two and a half years later, Kristen (a.k.a. The Mominatrix), has published The Mominatrix's Guide to Sex. In addition to wishing that I came up with the name first, I can't express just how exciting it is to see friends getting book deals.

I'm participating in the Silicon Valley Moms Blog book club today, but I paid for this book myself a couple of months ago, because Kristen is as funny as ever. One of my favorite quips is in a chapter about birth control, where she prints a table comparing methods, effectiveness, and side effects. Under the Counting method (sometimes known as rhythm), the side effect is, um, babies.

Speaking of SV Moms Blog, my last post (Confessions of a Scrapbook Drop-out) got picked up for syndication! Sacramento Bee and Charlotte News-Observer, here I come.

Babies are a great side effect, though! ;)

Aw, I remember that. I can't believe it's been that long.

Okay, I guess I can but still. WEEEHOOOO!

I'm personally acquainted with a couple of those Counting babies (not my own, though!). I haven't read the book yet, so I'm excited to read your review.
