Miserable Moms is a giggle worthy, fast paced book about the dreaded day your child leaves the nest. Obviously every parent wants their child to excel and go to college, I mean we spend 4 years of high school making sure there on the right path! We pay money for SAT/ACT and when it’s all done we have PTSD! We know sending them off is really what they need and what we want for them but no amount of preparation makes it easier. I haven’t had a child move far away to attend college but I know when my daughter moved out it was still life changing. I also remember when my mom drove me to my dorm ( only 30 minutes from home) and pulled away I sobbed. ( softy here)
Author Sharon L. Brecher shares her experience of sending her first born to college. I loved her humor and honesty about how the experience broke her heart but warmed it at the same time. The book is broken down into Do’s and Don’t’s with cartoon re-enactments throughout that had me smiling. I’m going to be in Sharon’s shoes next year and I’m trying not to think of it, but will definitely try and use some of the tips from this book and keel my cool.
Thank you Sharon for a silly retelling of one of your hardest days…leaving your baby to start her new college life!
