Review: Who Peed on My Yoga Mat?


I just finished Lela Davidson's new book Who Peed on My Yoga Mat? It's a collection of humorous essays about marriage, parenting, and dealing with the other kids' parents. I found myself laughing out loud at several points.

Her perspective on some things is quite different than mine, but our children are different ages. I may have a different perspective on how much time kids spend with their parents when my daughter is nearly a teenager too!

My favorite essays in the book are about marriage. She has been married for 17 years, which I consider quite an accomplishment. She writes about trying to schedule romantic weekends away, and even romantic evenings at home. Her Google calendar trick is worth trying, even if it did not work for her.

Her essay about women's undergarments helped change my mind about a shopping trip I had a few weeks ago. Since I have young relatives who read my blog, that's all I'm going to say about that.

The book is due to be released on December 4. (I received an advanced reader copy, but the opinions expressed here are my own.) If you are a mom, especially with kids between 9 and 14, definitely check out this book.
