's review

really liked it

Jen is from Kansas and her husband is from New York. They met online years ago, bought a house in Kansas, got married and had a couple kids. This book is a collection of essays about their lives including how to deal with a young female bully, the relationship they have with their cleaning lady, realizing their three-year-old son might be a racist, discovering her co-worker is a swinger and getting their son into the right play group.

I hadn't heard of Mann before reading this book. The title caught my eye and I hoped it would be funny ... and it was. I liked the writing style and despite not having kids, I did enjoy most of the stories, which are exaggerated for comedic effect (at least I hope they are). I liked her sense of humour. As a head's up, there is swearing.
