Welcome to Shut Up About Your Perfect Kid

Therapy and sanity for ordinary parents of special kids.

Announcing… A new imperfect contest that speaks volumes

Now that our Imperfect Valentine’s Day Contest is over, it’s time to introduce our next  contest. This one was developed by our friend, Darcy, who is well aware of our love for goofy pictures and shameless self-promotion. By the way, did we mention we wrote a book? Your  mission (if you choose to accept it) will be to take/stage/Photoshop a goofy picture that features the new white version of our book. You can have people in the picture with the book or just do something funny with the book alone. To give you a sense of what we’re looking for/how twisted we are, we have provided some sample photos below that feature our old book. (NOTE: The two women in the pictures are professional imperfect models.)

The stakes are high.

The winner of this imperfect contest will win…a new car! Of course,we are kidding. The winner will receive a signed autographed copy of both the new and old version (orange one) Shut Up books. To enter, just submit the picture to our Facebook page and we will select the top finalists and put it to readers of this Blog to select the winner. P & G (Patty and Gina, not Proctor and Gamble), our imperfect judges,  will be looking for creativity and overall imperfectness. Bribery is also welcomed  (we both love wine and chocolate).  If you are an astronaut, please feel free to take the book with you on your next journey; it travels very well. Also, if you don’t have the book, feel free to draw one that resembles it.

All entries are due by Monday, February 21.  What are you waiting for? Let the imperfect promotion/fun begin.

What do you think? Are you in? Are you a player or a spectator in the game of life?


Employees of Shut Up Industries (Patty and Gina) and their family members and dogs are ineligible. Shut Up Industries is not liable if you get a paper cut while reading either book, nor are we liable if you decide to beat a bragging parent over the head with one.

    If only this contest started when I was in South Carolina, standing in front of a 20 foot monkey. Dammit.

    Emma that’s Ok, you can just take a white piece of paper and write the title of the book on it. We’re flexible.

    It’s just as well. You might have fallen off the monkey while monkeying around.
