This book is for mothers and anyone that has ever had a mother. Erma Bombeck has a lot of insight and uses humor to convey her message. You will find that you identify with many of the mothers in the book. The stories are short and each can be read in 1-2 minutes. This book will make you laugh...and maybe cry.

Humorous and clean. None of us are perfect parents and there was only one perfect child and he wasn't mine.
