LOVED this book! Honestly was laughing out loud on every single page. I'd get looks from my boyfriend for disturbing his reading time because I could not keep silent. Not only is this book funny, but there are tear-jerker moments as well. I could not wait to come home and rush to read another anecdote about Cathy's fun and lovable Nana and daughter. This is a MUST, MUST read for anyone who likes to laugh, fondly remembers their children growing up, or their grandmother's sage advice.

Cathy is a very very funny writer. Her stories are fantastically funny (and true) and really capture the humour in everyday life.

I met Cathy and bought her book after hearing her delightful keynote speech at the 2017 National Caregiving Conference. Her Ted style talk had me laughing and I knew this diary style memoir of when she was sandwiched between caring for her toddler and her Nana in her 90s would be a great way to focus on the humor around caring for others.

Sikorski documents the challenges present when caring for a 92-year-old women with mild memory issues while also caring for a two year old. When her grandmother comes to stay for 180 days, Sikorski finds that her Nana and her toddler daughter conspire against "the boss" to lobby for more treats, fewer naps and frequent capers. Many would find the situation frustrating, but Sikorski does her best to find the humor.

Yes, the problems become overwhelming at time, but through writing therapy of sort

If ever there was a situation where a sense of humor should be a prerequisite it is in caregiving. Cathy's sense of humor is evident in one story after another yet through the humor you get the real sense that she is a loving granddaughter, daughter, mother and caregiver.
I read showering with Nana in two sittings and read most of it out loud to my husband. Neither of us have laughed that hard in a very long time.
Cathy is a powerful writer and I look forward to her next book.

Caregiving: We will either be the ones to do it or the ones to receive it. Cathy Sikorski's humorous and sentimental memoir allows us to laugh at life in all its stages. It is amazing to watch how this caregiver becomes the "monkey in the middle" between a two year old and 92 year old who join forces against her. The book is so funny and so honest. Just a joy to read again and again.
