I think there's a huge opening for this kind of "tell the kids the awkward truth" book:

"Why is my Daddy Now My Mummy?"
"My Daddy Lives in Prison"

And so on.

The Awkward Truth Series...coming soon from Wheatland Press.

Only I might have Ben write them to, you know, double the trauma, double the fun.

Thank you, Newsweek, for singling out this particular piece of vanity press ISBN-less crap as though there weren't huge steaming piles of similar books out there. Not that most people know about them, because you can't buy them except from the author and the vanity press.

Yeah like that would work. My kid hates it when I put on lipstick. I'd hate to think what coming home with silicon lips or a nose job would do to him.

I found it quite funny and at the same time sad.

I'm sick of seeing people who want to look pefect I wish they could come up with surgery on brain and make people a bit wiser.
