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.

I only have until September 19th to get this book done. It's good though and I should be done in no time.

I'm also posting early for two reasons, 1; work, and 2; a review posting tomorrow. Watch for that!
