Book Review: Days of Derangement, by Jackie Papandrew

Motherhood is truly a roller-coaster ride. Some days, we’re convinced it’s the best thing that ever happened to us. Other days, we wonder why we ever wanted children! On those days, it’s often helpful to see the humor in life with kids. Jackie Papandrew is a genius at laughing at herself when she just can’t seem to get the motherhood thing down pat. Fortunately, we can now read all about her adventures in the new eBook: Days of Derangement: Side-Splitting Stories from a Loopy Life!

Award-winning humor writer Jackie Papandrew created this book with stories from her hilarious syndicated column, Airing My Dirty Laundry, as well as several new yet-to-be-published stories. She covers topics such as…

The Desperate Dad’s Guide to Getting Some
Fruit and Fannies
Stylish Skivvies
Horses on Porches
Bathing Suit Blues
The Hairy Truth
The Five-Second Rule
Minivan Mentality
And much, much more!

I could really relate to her story called “High Maintenance Woman” about the difference in the amount of time required in the bathroom by men and women. The solution? Every married couple should have separate bathrooms! In “Backpack Black Hole,” I could definitely sympathize with her end-of-the-school-year foray into her son’s backpack. Toxic! And, having raised two teenagers already, any story about Jackie’s teens sounded like it could have been written by me!

If you’re a parent, you’ve really got to read Days of Derangement! These short stories can easily be squeezed into your busy day and bring a smile to your face when you’re feeling the stresses of motherhood and marriage.
