My Thoughts About The Book: I have to admit that I was less than thrilled about the title of the book. I believed myself to be a good parent....but had to admit that babies and children do not come with an instruction manual. It was because of that that I chose to review this book. It was hilarious! It was a humorous group of anecdotes at how to survive life with a baby in the house. The preliminary quiz brought tears to my eyes. One of the questions was, "if your kid does have a 100 degree fever do you debate keeping him at home. I was laughing uncontrollable at that moment. I had a child who thought of every illness under the sun to come home from school and one day I told the teacher, "don't call me unless she has a fever of 105 and is writhing in the floor in convulsions." The teacher did not appreciate my sarcasm. I thought I was a scream. This book was my kind of book.
Disclaimer: I received this book from the Net Galley Publishing Groups in an exchange for a fair and honest review.
I am a woman who wears many hats and loves them all. I am a singer - I sing with the group Still Magnolias. I was part of the original First United Methodist Church Arbor Praise Team until we moved. After 24+ years of teaching English 11 and Spanish I - II at Benjamin Russell High School I decided to take a job closer to home. I now teach Spanish I & 2 at Randolph Co. High School and Wadley. I thought I was getting close to retirement and looking forward to it, but decided to move my cheese and try something different. I am a preacher's wife and a preacher myself. My husband Frank is the pastor at Rock Mills United Methodist Church and I am the pastor at Midway (Wedowee). It has made our conversations interesting, to say the least.
