The Crazy Daze of Motherhood gift book is packed with anecdotes about Jane's experiences as a mother, told with a very dry wit. From overflowing toilets to broken collar bones, she always finds the hidden humor in the situation.
A mother's day is filled with all kinds of emergencies, from bumps and bruises to hospital stays. Find the perfect way to recover from your own family's little emergencies with Jane Isfeld Still's latest book on the hilarious daily challenges of a mother in the fray. You're sure to laugh and cry as you celebrate the joys of motherhood.
Jane is married to Rick Still, who she believes has the distinction of being the only man in history brave enough to give her earwax candles for her birthday. They had six children in eight years, and while her children were growing up, she discovered she had a great sense of humor. At least that was her take. Rick once said to her, "Honey, you know all those real corny things you say all the time? Who ever thought you could make money at it?" Her son Adam once told her, "Mom could you please stop telling jokes to my friends? It's really embarrassing." One of Jane's philosophies is, "You're not doing your job unless your children are worried about being seen in public with you."
Among the 20 stories included in this slender book, my favorite has to be "Fashion Faux Pas." I laughed. I cried (mostly from laughing too hard). I shook my head as I related to the horrible dilemma of what to wear to the doctor's office. I giggled as I didn't relate to being immobilized because my coat was caught in a door--with a nervous, half-dressed male patient on the other side. Very, very funny!
If you don't get this book for your mother this year, shame on you! If you only remember your mother this May 8, get the book for yourself, or a daughter or daughter-in-law (or all of the above).
