my poor daughter called me half-awake and practically hallucinating with exhaustion. she's such a diligent Mommy, she has been up for about a whole day and night now with my Grand Wendy. i realized one of the things that kept me sane during these types of parenting situations was my stack of Erma Bombeck books.

i was shocked that she had never read one.

how many other Mommies have heard of this author?

 My mom gave me one of her books, If life is a bowl of cherries what am I doing in the pits, I loved it. Helped me realize that I'm not alone.

I totally love Erma!!

I actually first started reading her books when I was young, teenager young.. LOL

My mom and my grandmother had her books. So I just picked them up one day and started reading them.. They were awesome books. Full of cute gems, great outlooks on life & motherhood, and just an overall enjoyable read.

I have! She was hysterical! I read her columns and books all the time. Lewis Grizzard was great too. Remember him?
