About Laurie Sontag and Manic Motherhood

I used to be a functioning adult with a brain. Then my son, Junior, came along. It took about 5 minutes in Junior’s company for me to realize I knew nothing about kids. So, numerous backward diaper changes, parenting mistakes, and several mental breakdowns later, I began to write about all the calamities in my life in a weekly newspaper column. These are my stories. The names have been changed to protect the innocent and the manic mommies in all of us.

Where Else Can I find Laurie?

Since 2001, I have been a humor columnist for the Gilroy Dispatch, the Hollister Freelance and the Morgan Hill Times. I’m also a parenting guru over at Yahoo on Shine. I guest post on websites once in a while, but I usually let you know where and when. If you can’t find me anyplace else, check under the sofa. I’m not there, but I like it when somebody else tries to find the lost socks and freak out the dust bunnies.

What About Books?

My work has appeared in six Chicken Soup for The Soul books, as well as Misadventures of Moms and Disasters of Dads. All are available at Amazon.com. I think.

Anything else?

Yes. Before you read anything, you should read this: 25 Things You Don’t Know About Me. When I say it explains everything, I mean it.
