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.

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:

“I know you don’t much like Oprah, but she had an interesting segment last night about “gas”, and what can be done about it. Two things I remember are eating more slowly (that lets less air in through your mouth when you are in the process of eating), and cutting down on carbonated beverages while you are eating…. Okay, I’ll stop now.”

Next time your mom emails you to remind you to take your vitamins, or your grandma sends you a little note from her AOL account saying that she hears the weather is horrible in your area, head on over to Postcards From Yo Momma and submit them for public consumption.
