“She brought you forth out of the cloud of genetics and fed and clothed you and taught you to wipe yourself and say Please and Thank You and never expected you to pay her back, only that you behave appropriately and try to make something of yourself and not land in prison but if you had, she’d love you because after all she’s your Mother.”
      —Garrison Keillor

“[Motherhood] is a hoot!! Beginning with the first story of Dwayne receiving a phone call from his meddling mother and continuing on and on....this close look at motherhood is poignant while hilarious. Give it to your mother, your grandmother, your aunt. And hey, Mothers, give it to your children so they can walk in your shoes! The perfect gift!”
      —Book Vault

“Lasts longer than flowers, has far fewer calories than chocolates and is definitely more entertaining than either.”
