Review

"A charming romp through some of parenting's funnier moments." -- Stacy DeBroff, author of The Mom Book and founder of MomCentral.com, March 2, 2004

"A laugh out loud connection for all parents. I love it!" -- Jodie Lynn, author of Mommy-CEO and syndicated family expert of Parent to Parent, March 9, 2004

From the Author

A license is needed to drive a car and get married. College prepares men and women for professions. The Army trains its recruits at Boot Camp for weeks. No one ever requires a soon-to-be mother or father to pass a test, and that's a good thing!

Parenting is hard work, and with most hard work, is extremely rewarding! The opportunity to sit back and reflect on the gifts children give adults each day is a moment in time many parents do not have. Misadventures of Moms and Disasters of Dads is all about taking the time to realize that parenting is fun and rewarding.

I am certain you will enjoy reflecting on your parenting ups and downs as you read a chapter here and another there.

How absolutely fantastic to have these wonderful slice-of-life, anecdotal parenting experiences edited so beautifully into a book that even has an exquisitely designed front cover. Adding to the entertainment that this comprehensive humor package provides is the fact that proceeds from the sale of each book will go to breast cancer research. Humor that delivers AND a social conscience. Now THAT'S good stuff. Forget those "how to" parenting books and come on over to the funny side with MISADVENTURES OF MOMS and DISASTERS OF DADS. It'll be the only regret you'll never have!

This anthology of real-life parenting experiences is a wonderful book. As a mother of four boys I enjoyed reading about how other parents deal with potty training, sickness, birthday parties and laundry. Apparently they use HUMOR because this book had me laughing out loud! Buy it, read it, share this book with other parents.

This is a true to life account of some of the funny experiences
we have all experienced with our children. I laughed out loud while reading many of the essays in this book. It brought back memories of the years I spent raising my five children. A book any parent or grandparent will enjoy reading.

With every essay in Misadventures of Moms & Disasters of Dads, you'll step into universal parenting shoes. You'll not only find comfort but also large doses of humor as you relate to the shared anecdotes. This compilation is a chorus of delight with the contributions of many parenting authors.

After a long day of being a stay-at-home mom, you would think the last thing I would want to do is read a book about parenthood. But these stories are a great reminder of how precious our children really are and why I left the workforce in the first place to be home with them. Very funny!

A delightful rendition of parents true thoughts of the joy and mishaps of raising children. Great easy read, especially for those times when you think only your children could create such havoc. It's nice to know others experience similar 'fun' of parenting.

This book is a must read for couples considering parenthood!
Children are, indeed, a gift from God but the reality of their being in one's life is something else all together. This book gives prospective parents a sneak preview of what their lives are about to become when a child becomes part of it. The misadventures and disasters make you smile in spite of the serious nature of some of them. I couldn't put the book down once I started.
The stories are written by everyday Moms and Dads. I was amazed that most of them had more than one child. None were discouraged with whatever story they were telling. They just wanted prospective parents to be aware of some of the possibilities that will more than likely arise when a child enters your life.
Can't wait for the sequel!
