Moms Go Where Angels Fear to Tread
Adventures in MotherhoodBook - 2009
New York Times best-selling author Joan Wester Anderson, in the tradition of Erma Bombeck, shares funny, wise, wacky and faith-grounded experiences of family life. Hysterical one minute and touching the next, the book's bite-size chapters contain hilarious personal stories and observations about the everyday experiences of motherhood that culminate in unexpected insights. Joan Wester Anderson uses humour from her own life to help make sense of a mom's everyday chaos and has readers laughing out loud in the process. Joan tells stories that run the gamut from the day to day high drama of trying to do too much in too little time (balancing kids doctor appointments, car repairs, pre-vacation planning and her own part-time career) to trying to find a life beyond motherhood. The truth can hurt (the first party I ever threw as a newlywed was so dull that even my husband left, Joan admits) but sometimes it can set you free as in the free therapy of monthly lunch dates with fellow mums. What else can you do after you have talked the children out of a dog and instead get a low maintenance gerbil which immediately gives birth to 14 baby gerbils! This is a delightfully funny and touching read that will inspire you one minute, and have you laughing out loud the next. For every woman, mother-to-be, mother, grandmother, and anyone who had a mum.
