TDM Table of Contents & Winners

Pin It Now!
And the winner of not $20,000 and a "Mom" t-shirt and a copy of my upcoming book
is . . . Joy!

She was sent to my blog via a friend of a friend of a friend. Through facebook. Serious social networking power. I must give a shout out to my friend, Kendra Tomcik for bringing us Joy! Joy, please email me with your mailing address and what size shirt you would like.

And because Derek Walker seemed so anxious to win the mom shirt and because he said he would wear it on stage (he is a worship leader at Cornerstone Fellowship) at the risk of being fired . . . well, Amy and I would like to see that. Not the getting fired part, but mom shirt on stage in front of thousands of people. Congratulations Derek.



If you are wondering what's in the book besides hidden secrets about weight loss, the history of nuclear disarmament, secret codes to save the Princess in Super Mario Brothers, tips on how to peg your pants, and my social security number . . . here you go. The Table of Contents. At least that's what it looks like for now. I am not settled on the title of chapter 8 so don't sue me or make jokes about my mom if I change it.

In a few weeks I will show you the sections within the chapters so you can get an even better idea of what you're in for if you've pre-ordered the book. And you can then decide if you want to un-pre-order it.

I clicked on the 'un-preorder link'... hilarious:)

I'm super excited to read this even though I'm a pre-Mom... I know I'm going to be a TDM when it finally happens! So, thanks in advance:) You are amazing!

p.s. You MUST let us know when the Mom shirt is on stage at Cornerstone!!

wendi, i can't wait to read your book! i actually think the title of chapter 8 is perfect. i might only add "flip flops". it was so liberating when i gave up that battle and stuck with the "natural consequences" approach. anyway, i always love reading your posts and tweets and again, am looking forward to the book!

best,

mollie

I cannot wait for your book! You are hilarious and now I know we share a similar pregnant/hemorrhoid story {and while I'm grateful for you sharing yours I will be keeping mine all to myself!}
