About the Author:

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.

My Opinion:

I have ten kids myself, so the stories in The Crazy Days of Motherhood seemed all too familiar.  Jane has a delightful sense of humor as she recounts some of her experiences with motherhood.  Her lighthearted look at the foibles of motherhood made me decide not to take myself so seriously.  Jane's positive attitude about life shines through in every story.  I loved it!  

This book was so much fun to read.  It would be the perfect Mother's Day gift for the women in your life and is sure to put a smile on their faces.
