9780449208342: Just Wait Till You Have Children of Your Own!

"She goes a long way with her book to prove that humor is the best -- possibly the only -- way to keep the world on an even keel."
CHICAGO SUN-TIMES
Remember the things Mother used to say? Erma Bombeck remembers them all and now she's using them on her own kids! With clever illustrations by Bob Keane, these really funny, too-true observations on family and kids and why it shouldn't work but does, is a wonderful antitdote to the daily problems and crises that every family faces. With Erma Bombeck in your corner, laughter is the best coach you can have....

From the Publisher:

Though not a parent myself, I am actually watching our mother's curse (as indicated in this book's title) work on my kid brother. My brother, George, and his wife have a four-year-old terror, Briar Anthony. One evening while on the telephone with my brother interrupted my conversation saying, "hold on a sec, bro, I've got to tend to someone." Then came mutters that nostalgically reminded me of my father, "Do'oh! God! Hey! How many times do I have to say no! Quiet!" My brother came back to the phone, "Lou, you still there?" I said, "Yes." My brother continued, "I think mom's curse worked about having kids just like ourselves. I swore I wouldn't be like mom or dad in dealing with my kid, but I'm finding myself turning into dad more and more each day!" Chalk one up for the mother's curse. --- Louis Mendez, editorial.
