For years, Melinda Roberts has chronicled her adventures in motherhood and life on her Mommy Blog that she adapted into this book.  She has gained a very loyal following of fans because she tells a story that any mom can relate to, but makes it wildly entertaining with her unique mix of brutal honesty, optimistic humor, and sarcastic wit.  Roberts shows readers what happens when you take a woman fresh out of college, plop her down in Silicon Valley, saddle her with a mortgage, let her ride the tech boom, give her three kids, disintegrate her marriage, end her career, and then hand her a computer.  Mommy Confidential is an endearing tale of family life beset by disaster on many fronts. And Roberts keeps her family together through it all.  Roberts has since appeared on Oprah and Mommy Confidential is one of Lulu’s top sellers.
