YOU WANT THIS BRAND-NEW BOOK. It's the 4th in the New York Times Bestselling I Just Want to Pee Alone series, I JUST WANT TO BE PERFECT ( get it here: http://amzn.to/1WZJvDV ). But that's the joke, right? That we all hilariously fail miserably at trying to be perfect--so let's learn to embrace those perfect imperfections! Bonus: I'm in it!

I love laughing on a Saturday night.
Yoo-hoo! Are you the spouse, adult child, or too-old-for-handprint-crafts child of a mother? Then you probably feel a tickle at the back of your mind, a whisper telling you you're about to screw up. What could it be?! Have yo...
