Book Review: Who Peed on My Yoga Mat? by Lela Davidson

When an author contacts you and ask you to review her book, and you just downloaded one of her books, but haven't read it yet, you start sensing some greater force at work! This happened to me this past month and I still haven't gotten over the Twilight Zone music in my head! But I am glad Lela did contact me, because I am now a total convert of hers!

 Who Peed on My Yoga Mat cover


SynopsisLela Davidson doesn't like to brag, but her children are clean and fed, her husband likes to cook, and she is rarely referred to as Troll Toes at the yoga studio. In other words, she's got it all. WHO PEED ON MY YOGA MAT? peels back the curtain on family life to show that happiness is really a matter of perspective. Between watching adorably annoying toddlers transform into text-obsessed teens, and facing inevitable moments of marital "for worse," a girl's got to carve out time for inner peace. As she did in BLACKLISTED FROM THE PTA, Davidson shows us once again that laughing at yourself and your family is the surest path to tranquility -- or at least the most fun.

Review:
a. read this book near the bathroom
b. make sure you have a box of tissue handy
c. do NOT read this book around husband or children
d. be prepared to spend some money

Why?

Because a) you will probably just about pee on yourself from laughing so much, b) your nose will be running from said snorting and laughing, c) due to the extreme fits of snorting/laughing/hysteria, the hubs n kids might think you are demented (hello, you're a parent, of course you are!) and d) you will want to buy extra copies of this book, so that you can give them to all your friends who are parents.

Now having said all THAT, this is a followup book to Lela's Blacklisted from the PTA, but it can stand on it's own. What I really liked was her take was for the over 40 crowd, yet all her 'mother' tales are universal- you may not be trudging the kids to hockey or volleyball, but to football, baseball, horse shows or the like, and you will KNOW what she is talking about!  I found myself turning down pages to share with friends and family.

Go check out her excerpt page on her website and you will see exactly what I mean!

I can only hope that when Miss Grace gets to be a pre-teen (ack the horror), I can handle it with as much humor and subtly (HA) as Lela did with her kids!
