"Amanda Johnson's #1 BESTSELLER lifts the lid on the perils and pleasures of parenting. True, hilarious confessions from parents worldwide. You'll never look at children the same way again!"
Sacramento, CA (PRWEB) March 04, 2012
Mommies’ Priceless Moments, the new book from Supermom Amanda Johnson, has a simple, universal theme. Struggles, unfair bargains, and opportunities to peel cereal from the walls will one day become priceless memories of times we spent with our kids.
Having married her dream man and suddenly becoming a Mother to three children, Amanda Johnson had to learn about parenting from the get-go. “It was sink or swim,” Amanda says, "so I made like a mermaid!"
The invaluable skills she quickly had to learn prepared her well for when she gave birth to her own child in 2009 – or so she thought.
Having got through the sleepless nights with no more damage than a few grey hairs, Amanda now finds herself bringing up a super active baby boy. Not wanting other parents to feel alone, Amanda wrote Mommies’ Priceless Moments to share parents’ stories in a humorous way.
The book, Amanda’s first, is a golden collection of funny stories from parents up and down the country. Each and every one of them is true, and as Amanda explains – will one day become a priceless memory:
“My basic aim was to expose the real challenges that come with being a parent, and to showcase them in an amusing light. There was no better way to go about this than speaking with parents up and down the country and compiling a book which contains their crazy, courageous and sometimes almost unbelievable stories!” says Amanda.
Amanda’s intent is to help parents to understand that they’re not alone in their experiences. The book has been a huge hit since first hitting the shelves, as Derek Thompson – Senior Editor at The Atlantic, shares:
"This book made me laugh out loud, opened my eyes and very occasionally made me shudder! I love the fact that these stories are all drawn from real life experiences. I have friends who are expecting a bundle of joy and they'll be getting a copy of Mommies' Priceless Moments to get them into the zone. Speaking as a guy, I'll never look at motherhood - or children - the same way again” he says.
Reflecting on her book, Amanda truly believes that there’s really nothing to fear when taking on the responsibility of becoming a Mom or Dad:
“I often dive into my own book to have a giggle at the stories that contributing parents shared. When all is said and done, parents everywhere are both proud and overwhelmed with love for their little ones. Whatever people say to try and scare you – it is never as bad as they make out!” Amanda reveals.
Mommies’ Priceless Moments is available online through the book’s official website, as well as in Ebook format through Amazon and Barnes & Noble.
