Review: The Fireside Grown-Up Guide to the Mom


It's not all wine and diapers. (4 stars)

If you enjoy a good parody book that pokes fun at parenting you're sure to enjoy this one. It's a little painful because it's weirdly spot on at times, though other times I found myself raising my brow at the questionable wording. This could make a cute gift for a new mom with a good sense of humor or a terrible gift for your own mother, gift at your own risk.

The Fireside Grown-Up Guide to the Mom by Jason Hazeley and Joel Morris

Humor, Parenting, Parody
Digital/Print (64 pages, TOUCHSTONE)
Have you been having trouble with the How, Why, and Wheres? Well fear no more. The Fireside Grown-Up Guide series understands that the world is just as confusing to a forty-year-old as it is to a four-year-old. We’re here to help and break down the most pressing and complex issues of our day into easy-to-digest pieces of information paired with vivid illustrations even a child could understand.
A mom has two very important jobs: to look after her children and to do everything else well. In this Fireside Grown-Up Guide to Mom, we learn about what moms like (making toys out of corks from her many, many wine bottles), what she hates (the sound of her own voice, which now sounds just like her mom’s), what she’s really thinking about when she leaves her children with a babysitter (whether or not the babysitter can handle these little monsters), and many other enlightening facts.
