Briefly, it’s a very funny collection of inter-related essays by a mom of two girls, aged five and three, about her life, her family, and a three-month vacation spent with her in-laws in Mexico. The author is a columnist and radio broadcaster in Boise, Idaho.
Comments: I had a day off, completely to myself, and planned a long walk in the park. But the weather was terrible, so I stayed in… and read this whole book in one morning. It’s ages since I’ve given myself permission to do something like that, and I loved it! According to Amazon, the book is 224 pages long, but it felt much shorter. I guess that’s because I enjoyed it so much. I’m glad I broke my own “no more free Kindle downloads till I clear my backlog” rule to pick up this one last week!
