Bad Parenting Moments: There's some SWAG in Santa's bag!

Thursday, November 15, 2012

There's some SWAG in Santa's bag!


When I was a child, my originally Jewish but, by then, formerly Mormon father used to take us to Grandma's house for some good old fashioned, Christmas Eve merriment. Wait, didn't you just say your dad was originally Jewish? Stop being so smart, readers! Yes, my dear Grandma Ada would buy a tree, decorate it, make cocoa and buy a red, Santa hat. She did this because she loved us even if Christmas wasn't her speed and was outside of the festively decorated box she considered "normal". We wanted Christmas. Grandma Ada made it happen. That's the kind of lady she is. But, this story isn't about my badass, Jewish Grandma. (HI GRANDMA! I LOVE YOU!) This is about the holidays. It's about families, stress, drinking, eating and trying not to punch people directly in the throat.

Want some goodies? Have you been naughty or nice? Guess what, we don't care. Naughty, nice or anywhere in between, you can win!


Nineteen of your favorite mom humor bloggers had a meeting and we all agreed. There's a brand new book that we think you NEED to read this holiday season. The title says it all:




Click HERE to see what folks have to say about this new age Holiday Classic. Yes, I can call it a classic. This is my blog. It's a classic to me.

Spending The Holidays With People I Want To Punch In The Throat is a heartwarming (yes, really!) collection of hilarious holiday-themed personal stories and observations written by none other than Jen of the well-known blog People I Want To Punch In The Throat.  If the holidays have you stressing about gift giving, cookie decorating, or where in the world to put your Elf on the Shelf, then you need to take a parenting time out and read a chapter or two. And now you can have a chance to peruse the pages for free. Consider it our holiday gift to you. We are teaming up to give away 19 copies of the book. All you have to do is enter the giveaway using the Rafflecopter link/form below for your chance to win an AUTOGRAPHED copy! BOOM! THROAT PUNCH!

Jen generously donated an autographed copy to every blogger participating in this giveaway so that we could increase your chances to win. This giveaway is open to US residents only. "But wait, that's not all!" we say in our best Price is Right announcer voice. We couldn't get a bunch of tech-savvy moms together for a book giveaway and not bring you an eReader, right?




SO, we are also giving away a Kindle Fire!


NINETEEN winners will receive a copy of Spending The Holidays With People I Want To Punch In The Throat and ONE lucky Grand Prize winner will receive a Kindle Fire! What are you waiting for? Get clicking!

As I said on Paige's blog, "Since I am well aware of my usual luck, I went ahead & bought a copy!"

I rarely, rarely enter these things - but this one called my name.....that means I WILL win....right? ;-)

I'm the same way. In fact, this is my first giveaway on this blog because I'm picky, but, how could I say no to this amount of awesome? Spoiler alert, I couldn't. Good luck, Gigi!

Exactly. This is the gift that keeps on giving, PIWTPITT.

I never win! BOO. You are always funny.

Me too! If I end up even 1/8th as awesome as her, my cause of death will be: Exploded From Awesome.

But, you COULD win. And now, because you never win, I'm hoping the sweepstakes Gods (they exist, right?) makes you a big winner, winner Holiday Throat Punch dinner.

Your grandma sounds like quite the amazing lady! :)

She's is truly my idol. Without her, I would never cut the excess plastic off of bread bags, put batteries in the refrigerator, always use one extra egg (regardless of how much the French Toast recipe calls for), grate my onion into my potato salad or be even 1/16th of the person and mom I am today. She's amazing. Everyone needs a grandma Ada.
