If you have ever wondered what to get your mom for Mother’s Day, wonder no more. Mother, Can You Not? may be the gift that keeps on giving. Are you wondering what on earth am I talking about? Let me explain…
Kate Siegel has one truly Crazy Jewish Mom. If you don’t believe me, follow her on Instagram. Read this article. Or this one. According to Kate, she started to realize that her texts from her mom may be seen as really funny (odd, strange, weird) to others and started an Instagram account, which she called, aptly enough, Crazy Jewish Mom.
The texts from her mother, Kim Friedman, to Kate are beyond excruciatingly painful. Oh. My. Goodness! This woman has NO filter! Kim Friedman, AKA Crazy Jewish Mom, is seriously concerned with the fact that she has no
Kim Friedman is more than just a mom, she’s an Emmy-nominated Hollywood hotshot director and producer. Star-Trek and L.A. Law ring any bells?
Anyway, the messages from Kim to Kate, which Kate screenshots and uploads to her account, have more than anyone’s fair share of concern over Kate’s ovaries, eggs, and uterus. Seriously! Practically hourly she worries about these things. And I find myself shaking my head and laughing at every one of them!
Kate then wrote somewhat of a tell-all book, Mother can you NOT? which delves deeper into Kate’s life with Kim. Trust me, it took years for Kim to perfect her crazy! I cannot figure out how this woman never got arrested. Or maimed. Or killed. With her very long-suffering husband and Kate dragged along for her unbelievably ridiculous antics. Seriously.
This book will keep you laughing. It will make you see that you are not the only person in the world with a hover mother. Actually, Kim calls herself a drone mom. And after you use this hilarious book, you will certainly understand why.
In all honesty, though, Kim really does love Kate, as only a mother can. (But she might love her more if there were grand-spawn.) And she truly has Kate’s best interests at heart. After you read the book, you may want more proof, so you may want to read this interview.
I highly recommend this book!
