Crazy Daze and Other Things

The Crazy Daze of Motherhood

Product Description
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.

From the Back Cover
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."

I found this book refreshing and full of fun. I read it on a short trip we made as a family, so it's a fast, easy read. It made me giggle as I related with some of the adventures she shared about her children. I don't think I stopped smiling the entire read. The illustrations added just the right touch to the anecdotes. It's the perfect Mother's Day gift.
