A few weeks ago, the team treated Mom Potato to a much needed night off. She decided to see New York City-based writer Amy Wilson read from her book, When Did I Get Like This? The Screamer, The Worrier, The Dinosaur-Chicken-Nugget Buyer & Other Mothers I Swore I’d Never Be at the Auburn Public Library.
Amy, who is the mother of three young children, writes about her parenting experiences with equal parts humor and insight. When Did I Get Like This? is a joy to read because her stories are wonderfully relatable, especially to mothers (MP included) who over-analyze everything from choosing the right preschool to managing meltdowns.
MP chatted with Amy after the reading, and she graciously offered a signed copy of her book for one lucky, Cute Potato reader. All you need to do is tell us: what is the one thing you’ve done as a mother you swore you’d never do before becoming one? We’ll pick a winner at random Wednesday, June 16. Good luck!
