Overview

Each page of 101 Haiku for Moms contains at least one delightfully irreverent, but far from irrelevant parenting truth. Author Faith R. Foyil pokes fun of everyday parenting topics from sibling rivalry, runny noses and play group socializing to family vacations, carpool nightmares and postpartum weight gain. Like traditional Haiku, these poems are structured into compact, three-;lione, 5/7/5 syllable schemes. And that's where the "traditional" stops:

I remember when/ caffeine kept me up at night/ not baby with croup.

What People are Saying About This

Linda Sharp
"Faith R. Foyil has managed to reduce parenting down to its basic components and being a Mom, Dad, spouse or caregiver has never been as funny. Would make the perfect gift for those brand new parents for whom free time is at a premium."

¿So he¿s got a straw. It¿s still not polite to say `You suck¿ to your friend¿ (p. 69) Faith R. Foyil is a woman of many talents. She can raise a family of turtles. She can write a mean humor essay. She can take care of sick children, make it to a play date, and start up an emergency generator all at the same time. And while she¿s at it, why not write a few haiku? 101 HAIKU FOR MOMS is a collection of Foyil¿s haiku which is amazingly often both introspective and hilarious. Foyil¿s ability to boil down frustrations and elations of parenthood into just a few well-balanced syllables makes 101 HAIKU FOR MOMS such a pleasing read. Here are a couple of my favorites: ¿Booger. Ha! Barf. Buurrrp. Weeeee. I¿m not making this up! Early Dave Barry¿ (p. 67) ¿Caution up ahead! There ¿ lurking in the still of night: Lego on tile floor¿ (p. 37) 101 HAIKU FOR MOMS is a book all moms must have for a glance, quick pick-me-up, or end of the day reflection. In true hilarious Foyil style, this book will be a beloved book on all moms¿ (new, old, or in-between) bookshelves.
