Book Review – Caution: Children Should Come With Warning Labels

Children have a natural tendency to explore, and their quest for discovery often takes them to unexpected places. While they may start out tugging on your leg, eventually making one leg of your jeans a few inches longer than the other, they ll wander from the task at hand and wind up in unfamiliar territory. I had never visited the space between the refrigerator and the wall until the day Sam got stuck in there. How she wedged herself in there, I ll never know, but I had to physically move the refrigerator to free her from her newfound confines. Then, Heather got her little head stuck between the rails of the banister. I also cannot explain how that occurred, but it is a phenomenon I believe should be added to the seven wonders of the world. The fact that we managed to pull her head out has to be the ninth wonder. Meridith got stuck, too. It s frightening to know that your child is stuck and needs you, but you can t pinpoint her location. The kids were outside playing, and their dad was with them, doing odd jobs and going back and forth from the garage to the yard. Walking out of the garage, he heard, Daaadddyyy! I m cruck! Right away, he knew it was Meridith, because she was the only one who mispronounced the word stuck. Meri was cruck, but just where was she cruck at? – Amazon.com

 

The Reviews

 

All In a Mom’s Life – Patti did an amazing job compiling her kids’ (four daughters…yikes!) shenanigans. She writes about where she went wrong and got “played” by her first daughter and how she caught on to their tricky ways and learned to maneuver the situation to her advantage. Notice I said maneuver in lieu of manipulate. Because parents never manipulate our kids…lol! Sure we don’t.

The first few chapters reminded me of things my sweet and innocent daughter has done. I enjoyed the flashback of those crazy days…especially in the first months of mommy hood. There is one story of Patti’s that had me laughing my ass off. It involves alarms, ringing phones, sirens, paramedics, and Patti…topless. Sounds like one of my fantasies (Umm… me instead of Patti of course). But trust me when I say it was a nightmare! – Continue…

Tara’s View of the World I definitely enjoyed this book. It made me laugh out loud several times and I was probably smiling and nodding the whole time I was reading it. This would make an excellent gift for the mom-to-be or new moms in your life… but even those with slightly older kiddos would likely enjoy it. My youngest is 2 I still enjoyed it immensely! The book is absolutely packed with stories that every mom can relate too- it’s always nice to know you’re not alone. Continue…
