This is one funny book Thank goodness It s so disappointing when something which is touted as humor, isn t Divided into four parts, the first Familiarity Breeds got a chuckle right off the bat, not only the title , but especially the second chapter, where I learned a little Latin right off the bat, Extra Vomitum, Nulla Parens which must mean something to do with being thrown up ona rite of passage which generally occurs by the time one has a two year old It puts a slice of giddy humor on an occu [...]
Light hearted Catholic encouragement for the frazzled homeschooling mothers out there.
I didn t enjoy reading the book It wasn t overly humorous to me It didn t follow any sort of organization It was like I was reading random thoughts seemingly tied together Disappointed.
Humor is tricky If we all thought the same things were funny, gross out comedy would not be a movie genre Even so, the essays in this book seemed pretty hit and miss The first few were very strong and made me laugh as they pulled me into the book But others, like the Hollywood Saints bit, felt like the author had run out of ideas I was looking forward to some Catholic humor and while there was some, it seemed that nearly half the book dealt with homeschooling than anything else And maybe I just [...]
This second book by Susie Lloyd is equal to and even rises in hilarity above her first one, Please Don t Drink the Holy Water In Bless Me, Father, For I Have Kids, Susie relates the ongoing drama and change in her family, along with the eldest going to college and the long awaited arrival of a son Susie Lloyd truly has a sense of humor that will not be easily forgotten Can t wait for her third book
I love the tag line the uninterrupted life is not worth living As someone who gets irritated by interruptions, I found that Susie Lloyd s hilarious stories lent a much needed perspective to the constant interruptions of family life Whatever the size or age of your family, you ll relate to the experiences in this book, have a great laugh and see things in a new light.
If you like Susie Lloyd, you ll like this one too I didn t give it the full five stars because, well, it didn t seem to me like she had much new to say Yes, it s good, funny, encouraging, supportive of homeschooling and husbands who try their best but still miss the mark on occasion There was some about reaching middle age, but most of it could be part of her other book.
I got this book last year for my birthday or maybe it was even Christmas 2010 I had started reading it but then it got lost behind must be read books that had to be reviewed by deadlines I m so glad that my basket was almost empty and I refound this it was quite funny esp the many chapters related to homeschooling I think the author has been peaking in my window
Hilarious My husband, Jay, and I read this book together on a road trip and we laughed and discussed our own children stories Thank you Susie for writing the truths about parenting, homeschooling and life that we can all relate with Ginette THomeschooling mom 3 girls
I love Susie s funny take on living a very Catholic life in the modern world This book made me laugh Thanks Susie
Book club selection.
I love this book We are not homeschoolers and my husband isn t even Catholic, but he and I get a kick each time we read a chapter out loud A great read for any family with kids
A good book to pick up, read a chapter, smile, put the book down, and continue on with the day to day care of many children because we all need to smile in the midst of chaos.
I nearly peed myself while reading this in bed Best parts are about her husband who resembles mine in many ways
