When author and teacher Jane Bedard shifted from working mom to Stay-at-Home Mom, her eyes opened to a brand new world, so different from the one she returned home to each night. With her autopilot control turned off, she was surprised to find a vegetarian, a carnivore, a pescetarian, and two nuggetarians at her kitchen table. When did that happen, and what else awaited her?

Join Jane as she addresses daily dilemmas so many of us face, such as:

When is it a good idea to tell a stranger to stick a piece of garlic up her ass?

Why is Batmom better than Supermom?

If you unexpectedly find yourself in a Thai brothel for a massage, how much do you tip?

Is it irresponsible parenting if a game of catch accidentally lands your kids at the edge of the Grand Canyon?

How do you say goodbye to the people you love?

THERE'S NO PLACE LIKE HOME celebrates that most domestic and exotic of all professions: The Stay-at-Home Mom, yet embraces women from all vocations with poignant and hilarious commentary on motherhood & childhood, sisterhood & daughterhood, wifehood & friendshiphood... all from within Toronto's hood and beyond.
