Giveaway: Ketchup Is A Vegetable And Other Lies Moms Tell Themselves [closed]

So you might have heard that my friend Robin O’Bryant wrote a book. And you also might have heard that it is ABSOLUTELY HILARIOUS.

Want proof? Here you go.


From the chapter entitled Holy Chit And Other Faux Cuss Words You Don’t Want Your Children To Say: 

“The bottom line is this: If you don’t want to hear your toddler say it, you’d best keep your lip and your attitude to yourself. Because you can just rest assured the one time you let a real stinker slip out of your lips, your child is going to hear it and save it for a special occasion (probably Vacation Bible School or a PTA meeting) and all the parents are going to know she heard it from you when she uses the “f-bomb” in context and with the right inflection.”

From the chapter entitled In Sickness And In Health:

“The thing I miss most about my life B.C. [before children] is the luxury of being sick all by myself. Gone are the days of sitting luxuriously on the toilet as the latest gastrointestinal bug rips its way through my body.”

From the chapter entitled Road Trips:

“You would think, seeing as how my kids are strapped in their seats with a five-point harness, that it might be a vacation of sorts. No hitting, no pooping in the sink, no rifling though Mommy’s makeup. Sadly, that is not the case. One particular road trip to Alabama to visit our families stands out in the O’Bryant Road Trip Hall of Shame.”


(Admit it, you’re DYING to know what happened on that road trip.)

What I’m saying, people, is that you NEED TO READ THIS BOOK. My husband, who gets terribly sick when he reads in the car, made the mistake of reading the table of contents as we were pulling out of the driveway one day. Naturally, he HAD to see what the actual content of the book consisted of.

He could not stop reading. Not even as the threat of imminent nausea overtook him like a hawk swooping down on an unsuspecting kitten. Do you hear me? HE COULD NOT STOP READING.

And my husband is neither A) a woman nor B) capable of birthing children, yet he found it hilaaaaarious. 

Seriously, I don’t laugh out loud at things, and this had me doing the Ugly Laugh-Cry.

    1. I have my copy and have planned to give 4 for gifts. I hope to win to give to another person I know that can’t afford to buy it. Such delightful reading!! I read and have a scrapbook of her articles in the newspaper. I think she is on the way to many awards!

  1. Between you and Jodi I seriously need to read this book.

    I’m like your husband when it comes to reading in the car, good to know to avoid that situation 🙂
