Erma Bombeck

Erma Bombeck is someone who could always make me laugh and became my emotional role model. Her book, "Family-The Ties That Bind...And Gag!" rescued me one day when I was so frustrated and discouraged with being a mother. I remember being in my room feeling like such a failure, and I started to read this book. Erma talks about family life in a humorous, sarcastic way with a lot of honesty and love. Pretty soon I was laughing and decided I would keep my family after all. I learned from Erma that there is usually a humorous side to life and especially living with an interesting family.

My grandma gave me one of her books about housecleaning and children. Very funny! You need some comic relief, especially with your wild bunch
