ain't nothing but a teen thang!For those of you who have “grown up” with the Lose the Cape community: We wrote the first book when our children were in elementary school and younger. As our kids have grown, we’ve grown as parents as well. We wanted to provide a book for other parents who are also transitioning into this point with their oldest child and don’t want to go it alone. (We’ve got your back!} We’ve included stories and practical advice. We come to you with our experiences and our history in the hopes that you will feel like you are not alone, and certainly not judged for the decisions you make. We do not come from a place of judgment, but in true Lose the Cape! spirit, we come in solidarity. We will survive this phase together too! Teen Thang Features over 20 Co-Authors to bring diversity and many points of view. We tackle difficult to talk about topics, like sex, what we allow our kids to do and at what age, puberty, and all of those fun subjects that make us squirm. So what are you waiting for? Whether you already have a teen or you’ll be there soon, the time is NOW. Grab your copy today!


never will I everMost of us had grandiose ideas of what we would be like as parents; what we would allow our children to do and all those things we would never allow. We swore we would never let our child watch more than 30 minutes of television, or sleep in our bed, or eat chicken nuggets or God forbid, guzzle cheese from a can (gasp!). Yet, the moment those little bundles of joy entered our lives, reality took over. Soon enough, we realized that before children, we knew nothing about being parents.From breastfeeding to co-sleeping, pledging to feed our children all-natural, home-cooked meals and so forth, there often comes a point in time where surviving parenthood supersedes your views and your “nevers” slip away. Right? Never Will I Ever is a collection of essays by mothers (and one brave dad!) who share their stories of how they evolved as parents and learned that when it comes to raising children, we can never say never. This is a a special anthology not only funny stories, (and there are some laugh – out – loud – funny stories!) but also some that are so moving and touching. Grab your copy now!


This mothering gig is serious stuff. There’s no handbook on how to deal with your kid, yet many moms feel pressured to be “supermom.” Sure, there are parenting books and websites and Pinterest, but it’s overwhelming. There’s so much to do, and despite our best efforts, we likely feel guilty for not doing more, doing better, doing it all. This book is an attempt to reach out to all moms and let you know you’re already super. You don’t need the “cape,” really. Still, who couldn’t use a little help? Lose the Cape features resources galore – including suggestions and tips from a diverse group of moms to make life run smoother. Organization, meal planning, morning and evening routines, battling new mommy worries, and so forth are all tackled in one place to provide a handbook for any mom looking for some relief. We’re not experts. We’re like every other mom – trying to survive and show our kids some love. But, we’ve learned along the way to cut a few corners, to learn some systems to gain control of the chaos, to form support groups to lift us up, to find a way that works for our families and ourselves. We try to be super every day, but we don’t aspire to be “supermom” because she simply does not exist. We think it’s time for all moms to join together and Lose the Cape.  Buy your copy today!
