Crazy Daze of Motherhood & Contest

I was once told that I should keep a journal of all the funny things our family did so one day my hubby and I could look back on it and smile as we relive those memories together. It was excellent advice, too. Well, one mother, Jane Isfeld Still, has gone a few steps further. She compiled some of her funniest motherhood moments into a book to share with everyone!

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.

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 Review

Crazy Daze of Motherhood has some seriously funny, laugh-out-loud stories! When I read Jane's first book, Mother's Daze, I thought, "There is absolutely no way one person could be this clutzy and off-the-wall funny." That is, until I actually met Jane in person and realized how true to life the stories in her book are! It reminds me something I read from a book I have reread multiple times called Guilt Free Motherhood by Joni Hilton. She said that no matter what your personality style is, YOU are the perfect mother for your children. Well, Jane's personality is just right for her family . . . and is a great example of taking difficult situations and findig the humor in them. This is a book I recommend for giving out to all the ladies you know for Mother's Day! But even if you aren't a mom, but like to read funny escapades - this is the book for you!
