Publisher's Summary

Based on the wildly popular Instagram account @CrazyJewishMom, Kate Siegel's essay collection is about life with the woman who redefined the term helicopter mom.
There is nothing more wonderful than a mother's love. There is also nothing more annoying. Who else can proudly insist that you're perfect while simultaneously making you question every career, fashion, and relationship decision you have ever made?
No one understands the delicate mother-daughter dynamic better than Kate Siegel - her own mother drove her so crazy that she decided to broadcast their hilarious conversations on Instagram. Soon hundreds of thousands of people were following their daily text exchanges, eager to see what outrageous thing Kate's mom would do next.
Now, in Mother, Can You Not?, Kate pays tribute to the woman whose helicopter parenting may make your mom look like Mother Teresa. If fans think Kate's mom's texts are insane, they will laugh out loud at the anecdotes her daughter shares in this collection. From embarrassing moments (like her mother's surprise early morning visit, catching Kate in bed with her crush) to outrageous stories (such as the time she moved cross country to be near Kate's college) to hilarious mantras ("NO STD TEST, YOU WON'T BE GETTING SEXED!"), Mother, Can You Not? lovingly lampoons the lengths to which our mothers will go to better our lives (even if it feels like they're ruining them in the process).

Mother you are awesome

Since stumbling upon @crazyjewishmom back when there was just a handful of other people following I have been entertained constantly. The book provides the same humor, and is so incredibly laugh out loud funny that I had to touch up my mascara twice. I highly recommend this to anyone and everyone ...except those who are offended easily because they have no sense of humor and wouldn't get the jokes.
