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.

REVIEW:
Calling all mommies!!
This cute, tongue-in-cheek look at mommyhood is one that all moms can relate to. Jenna has a way of sharing her stories, while giving some great pointers for new moms or moms to toddlers. She may not have all the answers, but she tries to handle life and children in a way that is positive, loving and at times hilarious.
Reading her story, even though I had not read the first book, had me looking back on my own experiences as a mom to babies and toddlers. I also had two kids in diapers at the same time, so I know the struggle is real. Seeing that all mothers go through this is one thing, but to know you aren't alone with the tantrums or toddler antics is a another. Often when the going gets tough, we feel alone. Reading this book was almost like attending a support group. Albeit with a few more laughs.
I may be long past my diapering days, with my children grown and adult now, but I hope Jenna writes more momedy books. Her humor shines through those poop-filled moments like nobodies business, and it's nice to go back in time to when I had those moments too.


4/5

Never Let You Go by Chevy Stevens #EarlyReview (64)

The author of Still Missing targets her readership with a novel that hits all the notes they come to expect from her―and ratchets up the stakes even more. Lindsey Nash has left an abusive relationship and her ex-husband was sent to jail. She has started over with a new life, her own business, and a teenage daughter who needs her more than ever. When her husband is finally released, Lindsey believes she has cut all ties. There is no way he can ever find her and her daughter again. But she gets the sense that someone is watching her, tracking her every move. Her new boyfriend is threatened. Her home is invaded. Even her daughter is shadowed. Lindsey is convinced it's her ex-husband, even though he claims he is a different person and doesn't want to do her any harm. But can he really change? Is the one who wants her dead even closer to home than she thought?

7th Blogoversary! (#Giveaway)

Back in 2009, I decided to start this blog for book reviews. I had my other blog for photography, but didn't want to mix anything with it. So Freda's Voice was born.

I deleted the first post I ever wrote. It was just a bunch of blathering on about starting the blog. Much like the first paragraph here.


So let's get to the good stuff.
You know I can only celebrate how far Freda's Voice has come by giving back to you, the readers. Without you, this would be for me and me alone, and what would be the point in that?!

There will be one US and one Canadian winner. They can each choose a book from Amazon valued at $10 or less. 

Easy enough, right?!
