Crave: Postcards From Yo Momma, The Book!
One of our favorite blogs from the past year is Postcards From Yo Momma, which features reader submitted notes, emails, letters, and texts from real mothers. And as is the trend these days, the blog has now been turned into a book called, Love, Mom: Poignant, Goofy, Brilliant Messages from Home, edited by Doree Shafir and Jessica Grose. It’s the perfect gift for Mom this Mother’s Day, obviously, but it’s also great for a laugh, especially if you’re lucky enough to have a mom who emails gems like:

Okay, I’ll stop now.”
