Editorial Reviews - Saralee Perel
Jackie is my favorite writer, and not just for humor. She has a way of weaving the sweetness of life into her humor writing. Although I've never met her, when I read her stories, I feel like she's sitting right next to me on my couch telling me about her life. And the thing is - nearly everything she says makes me feel like she's been writing all along about my life too. When you read Jackie's work, you'll quickly understand why she would be anyone's favorite story teller. She's simply the best. - R.L. Vogt
I can't remember laughing more while reading a book! A laugh out loud look at, well, life! Easy to read recap of things we can all relate to in day to day life with hubby, kids, and all that come with being a mom and wife while trying to keep a sense of self. LOVE IT - James Adams
The reader can most certainly LIVE the fun-tastic memoirs of a mother and wife in this memorable frolic through parenthood! Loved it. - Mary Oliansky
Totally enjoyed this book! Made me laugh (out loud) about real life situations that can happen to any of us. We can all relate to what she writes about! There are also stories about her kids growing up and changing. Her memories of them when they were younger evoked the same bittersweet feelings in me because my son is now a teen. Definitely a great read, and I enjoy Jackie's posts on Facebook!
Susan Heim on Parenting - Susan Heim
Motherhood is truly a roller-coaster ride. Some days, we’re convinced it’s the best thing that ever happened to us. Other days, we wonder why we ever wanted children! On those days, it’s often helpful to see the humor in life with kids. Jackie Papandrew is a genius at laughing at herself when she just can’t seem to get the motherhood thing down pat. Fortunately, we can now read all about her adventures in her new book.
