Summary, etc.:
"Candid, hilarious, and maybe just a bit R-rated, YouTube sensations Cat & Nat share their stories and insights to lift moms when they're feeling low, reassure them when they're overwhelmed, and make them laugh like they're talking to their own best friend. With seven kids between them, Cat and Nat know a thing or two about parenting. They've connected with their fans by sharing their completely real take on the stress, guilt, and joy of being moms, covering everything from sleep (or a lack thereof) to the hilarity (and struggle) of family vacations. They let us in on the hard stuff, and make us laugh with their Mom Truths; you may not have realized why clubbing is the best preparation for having kids, but they have! (Because the night always ends up with someone random in your bed and a girl crying in the corner.) Loosely structured around the stages of being a mom, Mom Truths features never-before-told stories from Cat's and Nat's lives. Short and digestible for a crazed parent, Mom Truths is peppered with advice and insights. Their goal is to help moms let go of their guilt. And their method is humour. Cat's and Nat's individual voices and the feeling of their close, no-holds-barred friendship is captured on the page, making this the essential companion for moms who feel overwhelmed, and are in need of an honest, funny pick-me-up."-- Provided by publisher.
