The Mothering Heights Manual for Motherhood, Volume 1:
What we wish we knew before we becoming a
short order cook
, shuttle driver, laundress Mother

This achingly funny collection celebrates the modern mom with wit, wisdom and a whole lot of love. -Jane Porter, Easy on the Eyes

If motherhhood did come with a manual, this would be it. The Manual for Motherhood is a must-read, must-share book for all moms. -Carrie Williams, Editor Coast Kids

The essays are honest, and many are a hoot.


Thirty-two women and one man answer the question, “What do you know now that you wish you knew before becoming a parent?” in this collection selected from the Mothering Heights Mother’s Day Essay Contest. This wonderful mix of essays and poems from everyday moms, best-selling authors and Hollywood producers will delight you with its candor, humor and good will.

In The Manual for Motherhood, you will learn how to:

1. Do a “mommy drive-by”
2. Parent with a coffee can
3. Dump laundry on a teenager

A perfect gift for an expecting mom or veteran mom in need of a boost, The Manual for Motherhood will make you laugh at the insanity and cry at the beauty of what it means to be a modern-day mom.

Christine Fugate began writing the syndicated column, Mothering Heights, to stave off the insanity resulting from getting married and having two kids within a twenty-month period. An award-winning filmmaker, she has successfully embarrassed herself in front of George Clooney and Kate Hudson.
