Bob Schwartz reminds us of the necessity, no matter how harried or confusing things are, to appreciate the humor in the day-to-day nature of family life. Bob gives parents a reason to laugh as he navigates the unexpected twists and turns of parenthood every mom and dad has experienced — such as that feeling of panic when you hear the toilet being flushed and immediately followed by your child’s less than reassuring yell of "Uh-oh!" Or the admonition to your five-year-old of, "No, you can’t have the leftover cotton candy for breakfast, even if you do pour milk over it."

Perhaps parents also need the reassurance that Bob offers. In looking back on his initial years of parenthood, Bob writes, "There was one word that sprang to mind — Naïve. That’s French for ‘Buddy, you don’t even have a clue.’ " If you, like Bob, are entirely clueless at the beginning of parenthood, there’s hope for the future.

For while imparting crucial information to his children like "the shower curtain goes inside the bathtub; don’t put marbles into the garbage disposal, and it’s not a great idea to see how many peas you can stick up your nose," Bob did learn things like how to navigate the challenging world of school carpool pickup without infuriating the power hungry fifth grade Safety Patrol. And you, like Bob, might also make some headway with the linguistic parental challenge of cracking the grunt communication code of teenagers. Bob Schwartz tackles these problems and more. He tells us that the purpose of his essays is to have us embrace the humor of parenthood and the fun of family life. "Let laughter be the fuel for this thrilling, and yes indeed, sometimes pandemonium-producing journey."
