written by Jane Isfeld Still
This book is filled with essays about the hilarious moments of being a mother that we don’t quite realize are hilarious until years later. Stories of children locked in bathrooms, overflowing toilets, bad hair days, and kids who try to help cook. The list goes on and on. As I read each story, I found myself chuckling out loud, nodding, and saying, it’s funny, because it’s true.
This would make a great mother’s day gift, as it an easy book to pick up a read even if you only have a few moments. I know this because I read it while waiting for my kids to finish school, basketball practice, piano lessons, and doctor appointments.
Here’s a little more information about Jane:
Jane is married to Rick Still, who she believes has the distinction of being the only man in history brave enough to give her earwax candles for her birthday. They had six children in eight years, and while her children were growing up, she discovered she had a great sense of humor. At least that was her take. Rick once said to her, "Honey, you know all those real corny things you say all the time? Who ever thought you could make money at it?" Her son Adam once told her, "Mom could you please stop telling jokes to my friends? It's really embarrassing." One of Jane's philosophies is, "You're not doing your job unless your children are worried about being seen in public with you."
