Mother, Can You Not?
Mother, Can You Not?: And You Thought Your Mom Was Crazy... | Kate Siegel
There is nothing more special, frustrating, loving, or fraught than a daughter's relationship with her mother. Kate Siegel understands this delicate dynamic all too well - her own mother drove her so crazy that she decided to broadcast her hilarious text messages on Instagram. Now, Kate pays tribute to the woman whose helicopter parenting may make you forgive your own mother's eccentricities. If fans think Kate's mom's texts are insane, they will laugh out loud at the anecdotes her daughter shares in this collection.

I totally forgot that a friend of mine loaned me this book and already started another! Should I put my (900+) page book on hold for this one? Anyone else read it? The excerpts she shared with me do look pretty funny! 📚🤓

Dollar Tree haul.
They had like seven boxes they weren‘t opening and stocking. Maybe I opened them myself. I hate waiting.

KathyWheeler I love how you do these posts of what you listen to while you walk. This is when I do most of my listening. I may start doing posts like this as well if you don‘t mind. 2y

The last message is: No, not really. Don't ignore my texts.

This one just came into the library today. I opened it to the part where her mother busts a rescue cat out of the humane society...including hiding it a purse, running, and a squealing tire get away. It looks hilarious. 😆

SaraFair Looks so good! 3y

I'm pretty surprised by how much I liked this. Yes, it is a fun, easy, light read but I actually felt inspired by the end. While I don't want to drone parent nor do I have the cojones to pull have the stunts Kim did, I greatly admire her 💯 support of her daughter's dreams, even the wacky ones, and she reminded me that life is what you make it. I need to remember and to teach my kids to grab what I want and not be afraid to fail. #LitsyAtoZ

Be warned: lots of posting is about to happen. My tree is now bare and I have some quiet time so I'm catching up on reviews, etc. I'm thinking it would be nice if the next @Litsy update could maybe include timed/delayed posts.

raelaschoenherr I would love that too! 3y

This was okay, I was having issues with Overdrive which made it a frustrating read. I just didn't find it to be a CRAZY read, yes her mother is a Smother...but so is Beverly on the Goldberg's. I chuckled a couple of times but nothing hilariously funny

A funny, light, and very quick read. I've been following her instagram account for a while now and the book is just as amusing. Although if my mother did some (most) of these things, I would die of embarrassment!!

A perfect cozy Saturday night in, with my boo watching his tv shows and me reading a hilarious book about an overbearing Jewish mother. 💙

DebinHawaii Sounds perfect! 😀👍 3y

Wonderful back story on the mom who started it all. A choice read for anyone with a close family, follower on Instagram, or who just want a few laughs about a larger-than-life woman.

Reading this has made me realize that the famous CrazyJewishMom is really my father.

I don't follow Kate Siegel's Instagram but I had heard good things about this book. So glad I picked it up! There were parts where I could not stop laughing! As crazy as Kate's mother is, it's obvious they're very close. It's too cute. As a mother, I hope my daughter loves me for all my crazy too.

This book was hands down a great read. Everyone would want Kim Friedman to adopt them!

I devoured this book in an afternoon. Kate is super witty and genuine, and her stories are relatable (even if the exact events they detail aren't). I'd highly recommend it to anyone looking for a quick, lighthearted read!

BookBerries Sounds SO HILARIOUS!!! Added! 4y

Absolutely loved this book! My favorite chapter being the cat-stealing one 😂. It's honest, hilarious and extremely entertaining.

Sue Just read the title to my daughter who said 'she must know what she's talking about'. I hear these three words a lot! 😂 4y
Lupita.Reads @Sue 😂😂 I often say it to my mama as well! Especially when it comes to the biological clock ticking 😂😂 she wants grandkids like yesterday! 4y
