Jill Smokler, aka Scary Mommy

Jill Smokler, aka Scary Mommy (Kim Hairston, Baltimore Sun / August 10, 2011)

I met Jill Smokler for coffee this morning for a Q&A that's scheduled to run in our Scene section on Mother's Day. She's the Scary Mommy blogger and author of the bestseller "Confessions of a Scary Mommy" and the new book "Motherhood Comes Naturally (and Other Vicious Lies)."

I won't steal my own thunder here but will say two things: She is not so scary that I wanted to call child protective services, and that she probably had the pleasure of looking up my nose way too many times as I threw my head back in laughter.

Stay tuned!
