From the Back Cover
When Rachel Balducci looks for material for her writing, she doesn't have to look far. Her subject matter can be found climbing through the window, hanging on to the edge of the roof, and rummaging through the refrigerator. Here she chronicles the exuberant, awesome life of boys through bizarre conversations overheard, unbelievable rules she's been forced to make, and the many episodes of boy behavior that continue to mystify mothers worldwide. From the care and feeding of her team, to travels out in public, to their wide-eyed adoration of Chuck Norris, this laugh-out-loud celebration joyfully explores the sweetly wild side of boyhood.

How Do You Tuck In a Superhero?: And Other Delightful Mysteries of Raising Boys is a collect of stories written by a mom of five boys. Rachel Balducci is a delightful writer and has an amazing way with words. The book contains approx. 100 mini-stories of life around the Balducci home. She proves that with boys there is never a dull moment.
Even though the title is "How Do You...", this is NOT a parenting book. This is key. In reality, this book is just stories of life with boys. The crazy, unthinkable, scary things that boys do and say. This book is set up more like a gift or coffee-table book.
Momma C's Thoughts: As much as I hate it, I couldn't get into this book. I didn't laugh at the stories or chuckle at raising boys. I really wanted to. But it didn't come. Here are a few reasons why, I believe I had this reaction. With three kiddos five and under, I am tired. Reading some of these stories was like reliving them. Some of the things boys do, I would rather forget! Also, as Moms we tell stories about our kids that are really funny to us and our immediate family but other people just don't get into them like we do. Lastly, boys are boys. They truly are Wild at Heart: Discovering the Secret of a Man's Soul. With that said, unless you like to read stories about other families, I can not recommend this book.
Contradictory of my last comment, there are a few moms who might find this book helpful.Read more ›
The antics of the boys and the way the author writes about her parenting journey make for a hilarious read; whether you learn anything from it or not. I will definitely continue to recommend this book to other parents.
