Rebecca Eckler’s newest book chronicles the hard truth of what it’s really like to make a blended family.

Blissfully Blended Bullshit is a witty, engaging, refreshingly candid chronicle of a modern family’s journey as they blend households. We follow Eckler as her partner and his two children move in with her and her daughter. Then, thanks to a reverse vasectomy, they add a baby to the mix. Readers go along for the ride in this poignant, often hilarious tale, as everyone attempts to navigate their new roles: the children, the in-laws, the exes, the ex-in-laws, and even the dog.

Lighthearted and intimate, this is an indispensable story about a family determined to make blended splendid, and the juicy truth of what it’s really like behind closed doors in what is rapidly becoming a typical family makeup. Still, if Eckler had to blend again, would she?

  • An honest look at the difficulties of blending two families into one
  • Topic is at the forefront of many peoples' minds, as divorce and re-marrying rates soar and new couples must navigate blending lives and families together
  • Author is a journalist, columnist, blogger, and bestselling author of nine books, including Knocked Up: Confessions of a Modern Mother-to-be and The Mommy Mob: Inside the Outrageous World of Mommy Bloggers. Eckler is also the executive editor of Savvymom.ca, Canada’s largest parenting website.
