Reading these emails is somewhat like taking a tour through "cyberspace," circa the 1990's. In many of these notes, moms make goofy allusions to various forms of technology. In others, they find new and invasive ways of keeping up with their children. Some are very short and sweet, and others reveal things that moms might not be able to share with their adult kids in any other form. It's a perfect gift for a mom (or grandmother, even), but what's genius about it is that even the most tech-savvy blogger type will also get a chuckle or five out of these motherly mash notes. You're very likely to recognize your own mom in these emails...or be grateful you were spared some of these probing "I've been reading your blog" type notes.

Fans of Postcards from Yo Mamma and new readers will enjoy this; seeing all the entries together is a reminder that checking up on one's kids is pretty universal, as is mothers not letting propriety or anything else stop them from having their say.
