They Just Want to Pee Alone.

You get it, right?

You know what it's like to close the door and know they're coming for you?

Whether it's your kid, your dog (or like me, your dogs AND your cats - when your kid is in school!), or your other half calling out to you, "Honey!?! Where's the _____?" Fill in that freakin' blank, my friends. I'm with you.

Well, a bunch of amazing bloggers have written a book. And the title?

I Just Want to Pee Alone. 

*affiliate links throughout this post to help me buy ALL the books - thank you for using them to shop!*

For realz, people. How awesome is that?

Best. Title. EVER. As in of ALL. The freaking. TIME.

I was so excited when my friends Lisa and Ashley over at The Dose of Reality posted about their incredible upcoming Oprah moment that I almost peed FOR them. With joy. I mean.

And I've read Jen (of the well known People I want to Punch in the Throat)'s first book, and had to hear more.

Then my Facebook feed kept going.

Honest Mom is in it, too? Did y'all just see her on Katie recently? *yes, as in Katie Couric, THAT Katie* She rocked it.

And Baby Sideburns. Pee-worthy.

So these amazing writers and a truckload more?

Yep. All in one book.

I downloaded it to my Kindle and started tweeting and professing my love. For the people. The book. The whole deal. And you can buy your copy today. Right now. Go. Do it.

And guess what? I rock. Y'all have to love me.

I'm giving away a copy.

Like right now.

Today.

Well, not TODAY, but in a week - give or take.

So you need to enter.

You want this book. And I want to get you a copy.

Because not only do you want it ... you NEED it.

It's so funny I cried tears from laughing so hard.

Lookit:


The cover rocks mah socks. See why you need it for yourself?

So - enter here and I'll get your copy to you when you win. M'kay?

Just one winner - and ya' gotta be in it to win it.

And I'm lazy and so not going the rafflecopter route right now. I just want a comment from you that says why you need this book. Share a moment of insanity of your own so I know you need people you can relate to. That's it. That's all. Easy as Pi. Pie. 3.14 = 4.13 It doesn't look right on the screen. Le sigh.

So, enter away! Tell all your friends! And good luck!

Oh, also, you can tweet, if you'd like, just a simple:

YOU rock mah socks! Thank you for the awesome words about the book!

Raine said...

I need to read this book because this morning my 5 year old was telling my boyfriend that he drinks too much coffee, and he was not having that. Yesterday, my son suggested that my boyfriend eat out for lunch so that he can "stop ruining our stuff." What is even going on here?!

Baby Sideburns said...

I'm currently ignoring my crying child to write this comment and THANK YOU SOOOO MUCH for this AWESEOM review of our book. You rock!!! Okay, off to care for my child. Just as soon as I pee alone first.

stilladuranie said...

I need this book because I survived raising a child! Or should I say that my kid survived being raised by me? I want to share it with my BFF who is the mom of a 4 and a 2 year old who didn't believe me when I told her she never pee alone again for at least the next 18 years & who constantly calls me and asks "Did you tell me about this?" (her kids were never going to do that, or this, etc. - HA!) If I don't win it, I'm gonna buy it anyway :)

Johi Kokjohn-Wagner said...

Thank you for this fabulous review!!! And I LOVE your blog title, for the record. ;)

Fiona Plunkett said...

I need to read the book because I need to live vicariously through it because I live alone. But I have six cats. Most of the cats do follow me in to the bathroom because three of them like to jump in the tub and have me turn the water on for them to lick the drips. A fourth one can't get in the tub, so he stands on his hind legs watching them looking sad. The fifth one sits on my foot demanding attention, because why not, I'm just sitting there right? The sixth cat couldn't give a rats ass, so she stays downstairs. I love her.

DrMommyPT said...

I had no idea other moms felt this way when my kids were little...and I am trying to make up for lost time! I'm STILL waiting to pee alone. Thanks!

Bekki Babineau said...

I need to read this book because I need a good dose of laughter. Although it's not like I don't already get it from quips from my 6 year old, such as this: "Mom, don't breathe on my pillow. You need a mint. I'm not trying to be mean. I'm not saying it smells like garbage. I just want you breathe to smell like beautiful angels and roses." I wonder who makes a mint that smells like that.....

boxercindee said...

I'd love this book. I have 2 dogs that NEVER let me pee alone and I also raised a little "woman" by myself until I men my fabulous husband 4 years ago. She is now 18 and for sure knows everything. She moved out 2 days before x-mas and broke my heart but now its just the hubs and I and the 2 drooling boxers and I still don't get to pee alone. I need some real humor in my life...and quick! :-)

Jenn @ Mommy Needs a Martini said...

So, here's the thing, you see. I have two girls under 3, both in diapers. Which means someday, I'll have two girls on the rag. At the same time. So, now I'm dealing with teething and potty training. Later, I'll be dealing with PMS and attitude. So, now I need this book to collect my sanity so that later I don't snap. K? Thanks :)

Meredith said...

So glad you read it and loved it! Thanks for this review. Here's hoping you can magically score one of those peeing alone moments--a true vacation!

Michelle said...

Didn't know you before and now you are my favorite today because of this FANtastic review AND a giveaway to your awesome readers! And I'm totally not just saying that to get my blog name in there....
Excited to keep reading! THANK YOU! :)

Andrea said...

I need this book because the only time I get to pee alone is at 5am, before they wake up!

Kate said...

I love those bloggers and haven't bought a copy yet...so I'd really like to win one.

Eric DeBlackmere said...

Single parent with two small boys and a dog and a bathroom door that does not lock or close properly. Enough said. :)

Kristi Arnsdorff said...

I have 3 noys, so not only do I not get to pee alone, I have to clean it first!

The Dose of Reality said...

You are the BEST ever!! Seriously, just seeing the title of this post made us cry...and then seeing our shout-out and well, cue the full-on Oprah ugly cry!! Thank you, thank you, thank you! :)-The Dose Girls

JD Bailey @ Honest Mom said...

Oh em geeeee! Thanks for the fab review. And for saying I rocked when I was on Katie. I was so nervous. I can't believe my voice wasn't shaking! :-)

Anyway, I really appreciate your support of the book. Big hugs to you! :-)

Brandi Fleming said...

I need this book because I NEVER PEE ALONE! I have an 11 yr old, a 4 yr old, and a 22 month old. Things that have happened to me on the toilet....nursing a baby (she had FINALLY latched on), them hugging/kissing me, sitting on my lap!!!, the comments they make... DON'T EVEN GET ME STARTED ON THE COMMENTS!
So, pretty please. I would very much like to win.

Bethany said...

Thanks for the sweet review!!

Jennifer R. said...

I need this book because not only can I not pee alone, I can't exercise alone! If anyone has ever seen the movie, Major Payne, then they can relate to how children can recite the harshest lines from a movie and be a MAJOR PAIN while trying to do sit-ups. With each sit-up, my 7 yr-old son recites, "one tubby tubby, two tubby tubby, etc..." Don't get me wrong, it's kind of good motivation to keep going. LOL.

Nicole Shaw said...

Thanks for the great review! You are my new favorite.

Elizabeth Kendig said...

I would love to win this book! It would be a great distraction from my 2 yo stabbing me with confiscated knives that I never understand how he finds! I'm pretty convinced he is the "real" Baby Stewie from Family Guy...either that or Chuckie. It's a toss up depending on the day of the week and what I fixed him for breakfast. PS: I may be losing it... lol

Patti Ford said...

Thank you! Much appreciated! xoxo

I did both, lol! I'm an internet overachiever... but that's it.

Adrienne said...

I need this book, well, b/c I want to pee alone!

Samantha said...

I haven't peed alone in 15 years, sigh, and I am sure I still have a few years left my youngest is almost 8.

There was this time my then 4 year old middle child threw a temper tantrum in Walmart because he wanted flip flops to match his underwear. And called the fat guy fat to his face all on the same day.

Umm and another temper tantrum by the youngest who flipped his noodle because I was buying a small jar of Kraft Miracle Whip and not the bigger one. That one I caught on video it is called Instant Birth Control.

I love all the bloggers in the book. I read them when I can find "mommy time".

Thanks for the chance!

Katy @ Experienced Bad Mom said...

I need this book because today I told my kids we were going to the library in 10 minutes and an hour later we still hadn't left. Oh, and I need this book because I want to worship all the awesome mommy bloggers in it!

LawyerMama said...

I need this book because not only do I never get to pee alone, but I also have a 7 year old child with autism who only pees alone if he is peeing in an in appropiate place (his pants, the floor in his closet, etc.).

Kristin said...

I need this book because, thanks to 1 husband, 2 cats, 2 dogs, and 3 boys, it has been over 16 years since I was guaranteed time to pee alone.

JP said...

I need this book because I was just diagnosed with an autoimmune disease and have done not much more than cry for the last week. I need a good laugh, and this book looks amazing!

Justine said...

You mean it isn't a requirement that my kids come into the bathroom with me? I had forgotten that the original goal was privacy. So yes, I need this. Thanks!

Justine said...

Sounds like a great read. Love the cover lol.

Ms. Trisha said...

I so need this book!! I can't go potty during the day cause I can't take my students with me and at home it is either, Keira, Charmander or Caesar and now Lexi. Watch next time I will be followed by a snail. :)

Kara said...

I need this book because not only do the kids join me when I pee, so does the dog :P

Stephanie, aka Scattermom said...

Me! Because as the only vagina up in here I may never pee alone again!

sheshe said...

I need this book because at this point, I will accept.the group bathroom visit as long as I can stop sitting on the gross white toilet bowl. STOP LEAVING THE SEAT UP! !

christine said...

Because, well, I desperately want to pee on my own. Also because I wrote about always having company in the bathroom on my blog. And because I hardly ever get to pee alone. I want to win the book! (even if I may never have the time to read it.,....)

Sorta Southern Single Mom said...

I NEED it because I love Lisa and Ashley and want to see what they have to say and I know it will be forever before I see you and can "borrow" your copy! :-)

Susan said...

Oh, I need this book because my toilet actually looks just like the cover of the book at the moment. Which is sad. Or hilarious. I can't tell. ;)

Jenn said...

Because I have 2 teenage daughters & a 4 year old son. I NEED all the humor I can get!

Tracy Winslow said...

Thank you, thank you, thank you for this kind review! You are a giant pile of awesome.

mymomismmoments said...

I need this book because if I don't laugh, Im going to cry! 3 boys ages 6/6/2, a husband who drives and is only home 4 days a month, when we are lucky and bills to the sky. Yeah, my weekend just looked up.

KathyMorelli said...

Hey Andrea! I LOVE the idea of this book! and I NEED a copy of this book! I remember going to get my hair done (its prematurely grey) and my mom came with me to help out with my infant son. I was nursing, so i had to stand up with hair dye on me! and walk around the salon with him UNDERNEATH the plastic cape and nurse him! Pee alone! HA! Anyway - now I counsel ALOT of new oms and I'd love to have this book to add some old levity and empathy to their lives! Love Kathy

KathyMorelli said...

I tweeted but have no idea how to get the URL of a single tweet!

tranquilamama said...

I love, love the title. This is my wish on a daily basis. Thank goodness for work where I can pee alone.

Mrs4444 said...

I need the book because we got another three inches of snow today, and I'm starting to get cabin fever :)

So, I've been trying to think of some happy/funny story to tell. And I really can't. Why? Its not because I have a lack of stories its...its....*frowns* Its because I am depressed and sad...I try to hide it...and I do a damn good job in front of my 6 yr old son and my husband, but when they are gone all I want to do is sleep....I need this book, because I need the happiness in it the stories and to know that I am not alone. So, that my husband can read it and maybe it will help him understand that he too is not alone with raising a son. I am afraid that when I die, my husband will lose his temper and my son will suffer...(you are probably thinking...stop being such a sad sack you are young and have lots to look foreward too) Here's my story.... I have a genetic disease that cause pre cancerous growths to grow in your digestive track, I have had many surguries to slow it down, but you can only take so much out before there is nothing left to take out. Right now, my body is acting as if I have cancer, yet all of my tests show up negative, so I spend my days nauseated, in pain, and usuallly at some point in the day I will find myself "praying to the porclien god" (the toilet). I need the smiles I am sure "I Just Want To Pee Alone" would hopefully bring to my face. And when my husband reads it (as I would make him) maybe it would help him with his patients with our son. Yes I know the book is not a self-help book, I know it is full of true stories and we NEED that. My son is ever afraid of his dad, esp. when the Husbands temper flairs,, I am constantly having to step between the two to defuse the situation, but what will happen when I am not there to help? I won't be around forever, esp. with days that seem long a dark, even though the sun shines happily outside and bounces off the snow (oh how I loathe snow, but I am Canadian I live here so I grin and bare it like I grin and bare the days when I want nothing more than to lay down and sleep and sleep and never wake up....I also fear the my son will hate me, because he too has what I have...How do I know? Because I had him genetically tested, and sure enough he does have it...maybe he will be lucky and it won't start to truely effect him till he's in his 40's and it won't start at 12 yrs old like it did with me, or 18 yrs old like it did with my dad...his sister raised him (my dad's sister) Because his dad was an alcoholic, because his wife was sick (with what I have) and she died in her 30's, my dad died in his 30's (he was 36) -but thats another story (his death that is -and how I came to be when he never wanted kids beccause he was afraid of passing on this horrible disease and how I came to be was my a woman who tricked him, the one who gave birth to me and kept me from him...now I am rambling and I have written a book) Maybe you will choose me maybe you wont....I am 28 as of sat. march 16...
I am sorry if I have depressed anyone...I am also sorry for any spelling and grammer errors I may have made, as I am tired and do not feel like changing any mistakes, I also hope this all made sense
