MARY MARY QUITE On Raising Children (And Other Mind-Altering Substances) by Mary Huckstep Review

MARY MARY QUITE On Raising Children (And Other Mind-Altering Substances) by Mary Huckstep
Step right in to this beautifully illustrated book with short stories about marriage, household pests, children, holidays, teenage driving, bedtime antics and many other matters of domesticity. Each story has a subtle message and is peppered with wit and plenty of laughter.
Mary and her hubby, old Hunk raised five kids, assorted grandkids, three dogs, two cats, various reptiles, rodents galore, a boatload of fish, and a Mexican tarantula named Mad Max. It was crazy. But their drug of choice has always been laughter. Enjoy the stories taken from their experiences.
Sneak Peek: "Why oh why can't mamas live their kids' lives for them? It would solve so many problems before they even started. And it would save so many kids from making mistakes. Big, hairy, dumb-dumb mistakes. Dear God, life would be so simple if only we had a Mama On Board, magical, instantaneous, high-powered panic App - otherwise known as the MOB App. Think about it . . ."

My Review
This is a great book to read when I want to escape from adulting! I always liked Erma Brombeck, and this author has that sort of feel to this book. This is a fun read! I am giving this book a 5/5. I was given a copy, all opinions are my own.
