NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER
Has it been months since you’ve read a book with actual adult words that had nothing to do with farm animals or superheroes or going potty? Well then, it’s time to take a break. Pour yourself some wine. Put on your comfy pants. All good? Ok, welcome to the party.
Kristin Hensley and Jen Smedley, the creators of #IMOMSOHARD, know that you probably didn’t get to shower today and that the last thing you need is more advice on how to be a better parent. Instead, they invite you to join their laugh-out-loud, best friend banter on the eighty bajillion ways moms give their all every day—including:
I KEEP IT TOGETHER SO HARD
I BODY AFTER BABY SO HARD
I HIT THE TOWN (AND AM IN BED BY 9:30 P.M.) SO HARD
I BUST MY ASS SO HARD
I KEEP FOOLS ALIVE SO HARD
Come for the laughs, stay for the kinship with two friends who are just getting it right, getting it wrong, and leaning on each other for a laugh at the end of the day. They don’t care if your house is a mess and they won’t judge you if you pee a little when you sneeze. So kick back, relax, and enjoy. You deserve it.

About the Author
KRISTIN HENSLEY and JEN SMEDLEY have been performing, teaching, and writing comedy for a combined 40+ years. They have been moms for one quarter of that time and it shows. From Pinterest-induced panic, to trying to get your kid to eat just one damn green bean, to wondering why it feels like you disappeared the day you became a mom, they get it. They get you. Kristin and Jen know firsthand that parenting is a hard job and they invite you to join them in taking it all a little less seriously. After all, Jen currently has four days of dry shampoo in her hair and Kristin’s keys are still in her front door. They try, they fail, they support each other, and they mom as hard as they can.

A beautiful book about friendship and womanhood. #IMOMSOHARD will have you laughing out loud within the first few pages. Kristin and Jen share stories that all women- Mothers, Grandmothers, Sisters, Aunties- can relate to. This book will have make your sides cramp from laughter one minute and have you crying the next. I have never hard so many "me too" or "Hey, I'm not alone in this" moments as I have had while reading this book. They are the two best friends a girl could ask for and will leave you feeling empowered and inspired. This is not a book to be missed!
What can I say? These ladies are so fabulous and everything they said rings true. I can’t wait for the next book. I know you just finished this one, but I’m ready for more belly busting laughs.
