LIGHTNING RELEASES (5/8/2014) – A daughter’s moving account of her mother’s Depression era childhood, conveys the transformative power of a mother’s love for her children. is a Humorous Life and Style Blog written by Seattle Humorist, Celeste Garcia Ramberg. “Sentimental prose has not been a strong feature of my blog. I was thinking about funny anecdotes for a Mother’s Day post, and found myself constantly reflecting on my own incredible mother, and the sacrifices she had made for her family. The result is this tribute, straight from the heart.”

Garcia Ramberg is a self-proclaimed “de-motivational speaker” and “underachievement coach”. “I felt bombarded by media messages of perfectionism targeting women, and knew that I was not alone in my bewilderment. Decorate and run a stylish and ultra-organized household, prepare healthy and delicious gourmet meals, raise brilliant children, be a powerhouse executive, entertain in your beautiful home, look perfect at all times, and keep romance alive in your marriage. What gives? I know a lot of women who feel bogged down by unreasonable expectations. I launched to help alleviate some of the pressure that makes women feel stress and frustration. I strongly believe humor is imperative to surviving the madness of 21st Century parenting. Underachieve with grace and aplomb. Embrace imperfection, because it’s never going to be perfect.”

Napadaisical has been resonating with readers since its launch in the summer of 2013. Followers have called Garcia Ramberg the “female David Sedaris” and compared her to Erma Bombeck. Comments from readers often express relief to see they are not alone in the clutter and chaos of modern family life. “They love that I am proudly displaying my parenting foibles and mishaps.”
