The Fireside Grown-Up Guide to the Mom

Sold by Simon and Schuster
Free sample

The international publishing phenomenon and ridiculously funny new parody series that helps grown-ups learn about the world around them using large clear type, simple and easy-to-grasp words, frequent repetition, and thoughtful matching of text with pictures.

Have you been having trouble with the How, Why, and Wheres? Well fear no more. The Fireside Grown-Up Guide series understands that the world is just as confusing to a forty-year-old as it is to a four-year-old. We’re here to help and break down the most pressing and complex issues of our day into easy-to-digest pieces of information paired with vivid illustrations even a child could understand.

A mom has two very important jobs: to look after her children and to do everything else well. In this Fireside Grown-Up Guide to Mom, we learn about what moms like (making toys out of corks from her many, many wine bottles), what she hates (the sound of her own voice, which now sounds just like her mom’s), what she’s really thinking about when she leaves her children with a babysitter (whether or not the babysitter can handle these little monsters), and many other enlightening facts.

MY MOTHER SENDS ME EMAILS IN ALL CAPS SO IT ALWAYS SEEMS LIKE SHE IS YELLING. SO IN HER STYLE I WILL SAY, I LOVE THIS BOOK!!!!!
-Margaret Cho Love, Mom is a hilarious look at what happens when interfering, maddening, kvetching, querying, and loving moms push the `send' button. This is a great book for anyone who ever looked at her email inbox and said, `Oh, no--it's from my mom.'
-Amy Dickinson, author of The Mighty Queens of Freeville, "Ask Amy" syndicated advice columnist, and NPR contributor This book is hilarious and smart--a wittily organized collection that proves, without a doubt, that our moms are humankind's most natural comedians.
-Mike Albo, author of Hornito and The Underminer I'm much older than my computer--are you suggesting that the older something is, the more uselss it becomes Because that's what I'm hearing (although I'm not hearing it very well.....)
Love,
your old mom Yes, I am a pest, but I just looked at Iowa weather and it will be 5 below Tuesday night. Hope you have a hat with ears. Love you, Mom Sweet, funny, endearing, slightly technologically inept, and always just a little nagging, emails from mothers to their adult children are much more fun to read when it's somebody else's mother. PostcardsFromYoMomma.com is proof of that--when it launched, this repository of reader-submitted missives from Mom received more than 100,000 unique visitors in just the first two weeks. In Love, Mom, editors Doree Shafrir and Jessica Grose have assembled more than two hundred of the best never-before-seen submissions. From school, sex, technology, and appearance to health, work, holidays, and food--and complete with a selection of celebrity emails (including Oscar-winner Diablo Cody's mom on her daughter's "blob"), and sidebars throughout--Love, Mom is ultimately a reflection on how our moms are always our moms . . . no matter how the message is sent.
