Embarrassing Moms Get Tipsy Before Church

WINNEPEG, Manitoba (Wireless Flash - FlashNews) – If you think your mom is embarrassing, think again.

Colleen Sydor is the author of My Mother Is A French Fry And Further Proof Of My Fuzzed-Up Life (Kids Can Press), a book about a teenage girl who’s convinced that her embarrassing mom is the reason life sucks.

In the book, the teen’s mom gets a job as a mascot for a fast food restaurant sporting a five-foot rubber foam french fry costume.

While Sydor insists she’s never embarrassed her own kids by being a french fry, she admits the embarrassing mom in her book is based on herself.

Sydor has embarrassed her teenage kids many times by being “too friendly or outgoing with strangers” – and then there’s the whole drinking before church incident.

She laughs, “One Christmas Eve (Dec. 24) I had way too much wine before midnight mass. My kids were overcome with hilarity that their mother was tiddly at church. They laughed at me for months!”

Sydor also leaves her kids red-faced with her hobby as a “backlane treasure hunter” but adds, “I get some of my funkiest stuff digging through people’s trash!”
