From the Publisher
This book hits home in the passage about The Mother Mystique. The one passage I'd love to share is my mother's metamorphosis with her physical appearance through the years. Of course, she had her role models, and by judging from her fashion tastes and family photos, my mother was carbon copy of the following women:
Betty Crocker (apron and waffle iron included).
Doris Day. This phase included a beehive do, box suits and pillbox hats. Que sera, sera
It's a story of a lady who looks like Carol Brady.
Schlemiel, schlamazel look at me I'm dressing like Penny Marshall.
Nancy Regan reds. Alternating with Barbara Bush blues. (Hairstyles not included).
Golden Girl wanna be. Mom's outfits include Bea Arthur gray hair and designer seat suits.

From the Inside Flap
you can read a paragraph without laughing out loud."
The enchanting lady of laughter has done it again--this time taking a hilarious swipe at husbands, honeymoons, tennis elbow, marriage, lettuce, the national anthem, and a host of other domestic dilemmas.
"It's fun from cover to cover."

This book made me laugh and made me cry. I think my absolute favorite chapter would be: I am Laughing So Hard that I Can't Stop Crying. I think I cried and laughed throughout that whole chapter. There's one where the father grumbles about the grass being torn up because of the wading pool, the sledding parties and beach parties. Then there's the one where it says, I love you enough to say no .... truths that my parents have always said to me and truths that I plan to pass onto my kids.
This book is heartfelt and witty. I wish there are more writers like Erma still out there. Sometimes, it seems like not everyone has a sense of humor anymore about life ~~ and even though life was hard, Erma made it all worthwhile. It still rings true today.
