Reviewed by Rosie Malezer for Readers' Favorite The Toilet Is Over-Flowing & The Dog Is Wearing My Underwear is a book of witty anecdotes by Debbie Roppolo about the challenges and rewards of motherhood. Debbie initially discusses how her mother had warned her, many years ago, that Debbie’s children would turn out just like her if she isn’t careful. Rolling her eyes, Debbie goes out into the world and, after several mishaps, meets and marries John – the man of her dreams – who also happens to be the police officer in attendance at one of said mishaps. Debbie asks her husband twice, early in the marriage, if they can buy a puppy. Both times she becomes pregnant. Before she realizes it, Debbie is the mother of two beautiful baby boys and is determined that they will not drive her crazy, as she had done to her mother when she was a child. Debbie embraces both of her children with a mother’s love, and cherishes every experience that comes her way with her children and her husband. After finally getting a puppy – a Dalmatian – her children decided to play connect-the-dots with permanent markers. Debbie’s trials and tribulations with her family are shared in hilarious narrative compilation. I tend to read new books at night, while my husband is fast asleep and snoring next to me. Debbie Roppolo’s words had me laughing so hard in places that my husband gave up on sleep pretty quickly. The Toilet is Over-Flowing & The Dog is Wearing My Underwear! is one of the funniest collections of anecdotes about watching your children grow up and adapting to each day as it comes. I will be reading this book each time I need a good laugh, because Debbie Roppolo certainly hits some home-runs in this wonderful, hilarious book.
