Photo of MotherFumbler book coverThere’s always one gal in a female posse who dares to say what the rest of us are thinking.

You know the one: she makes you cringe or gasp, and laugh so hard you snort wine through your nose.

Vicki Murphy’s MotherFumbler is based on her blog, motherblogger.ca. This little paperback is the antidote for those of you struggling to be perfect when baby crash-lands into your world. You are not alone.

Murphy is a natural comedian, but she also writes beautifully about life and loss.

The love she has for her family reminds us of ourselves, but she knows that shit happens and she’s not afraid to point it out.

With chapters like “Reflections of a Broken Vagina”, “Ugly Baby Alert” and “Kids are Really, Really Gross,” it’s a perfect baby-shower gift for the new mom-to-be.

Really, really.
