This is a book about motherhood and all the crazy feelings that mothers have towards the children in their care, whether they are their own children, adoptive children, grandchildren, or nieces and nephews. Its about families, but its about mothers, too – these creatures who speak a weird, annoying language that can only be understood by women who become part of the club. Dont worry, though; this isnt a book of complaints. Its quite the opposite: these are funny, simple, true stories. If youve read "Dad is Cool," come and read about the more intense part of the journey. "Mom Rocks" has no filter; it features the most fun and moving juggling acts that a modern couple has to practice every day while raising their two daughters. What readers said about MOM ROCKS "I read it in one seating while at a doctors appointment. The doctors assistant even asked my husband whether he was married to that woman laughing at the book." I really saw myself in these stories." "I woke up at 5 a.m. today and couldnt go back to sleep. I made myself some coffee, picked up your book?which I had left on the kitchen counter?and went into the living room. I sat on the couch, opened the book, and started reading it. I laughed and I cried. I laughed more than I cried, though?but I did cry out of relief. I didnt feel so alone after reading your words. Thanks! "I loved this book. It fits me like a glove. Its realistic and makes great social commentary."
