Being A Mother
by Amber Dusick, author Parenting: Illustrated with Crappy Pictures
You ever think about what it is like to be a mother? How would you describe it?
I’ll tell you how I’d describe it. And I’ll even tell you the truth.
It is exhausting.
Sleepless nights. Early mornings. Bed intruders.
Yawn. What was I talking about? Let me take a sip of my coffee.
Oh yeah. Motherhood.
Hold on, my toddler just asked me for a glass of water.
Motherhood is frustrating.
Kids don’t always make sense. And they tend to not make sense loudly.
There are lots of things that motherhood is. Rewarding. Fulfilling. Exciting. Crazy making. Laughter inducing. Grey hair producing.
But one thing is for sure.
No matter what you’d put on your list, there is one thing we can all agree on.
Motherhood is definitely worth it.
Happy Mother’s Day!
“The drawings aren’t very good, Mama.”

Of course you love being a parent. But sometimes, it just sucks. I know. I’m Amber Dusick and I started my blog Parenting: Illustrated with Crappy Pictures because I needed a place to vent about the funny (and frustrating) day-to-day things that happened to me as a parent. Turns out, poop is hilarious! At least when you’re not the one wiping it up.
This book won’t make your frustrating moments any less crappy. But these stories about my Crappy Baby, Crappy Boy and my husband, Crappy Papa, will hopefully make you laugh. Because you’re not alone. And sometimes the crappiest moments make the best memories. Parenting is wonderful! And also, well, you know.
