Do the words “What’s for dinner?” make you cringe? Are you tired of one-word answers from the teenager in the house? These hilarious stories are a laugh-out-loud look at everyday life. From “A construction company…what were we thinking?” to “My Big, Fat Tongue,” you won’t be able to put this one down.

Because I Said So! by comedy author Michelle Hoppe is a look into the ups and downs of raising a family, while attempting to become an author. Take a peek into the family life of the Hoppe clan and discover how Michelle turned everyday life into delightfully funny stories.

Michelle was blessed with the ability to view life through rose tinted glasses. Unlike Claire Tomalin, who said “My life was a sort of series of random disasters,” Michelle’s life, with her twisted sense of humor and a madcap home crew, is more a series of random “by the seat of your pants motherhood”.

Growing up, Michelle loved to read books by Erma Bombeck; books like If Life is a Bowlful of Cherries, What Am I Doing in the Pits and Motherhood taught her to look for the humor in life. Michelle’s favorite Erma quote “When humor goes, there goes civilization!” seemed like a call to action, so this comedy autobiography is her contribution to the continuation of mankind, oops…personkind!

This hilarious book contains humor about family life, motherhood, and parenting, and is sure to keep you laughing from beginning to end.

Why Mommy Drinks is the brilliant novel from Gill Sims, the author of the online sensation Peter and Jane.

Boy Child Peter, Girl Child Jane and Daddy have exciting adventures with Mommy. Daddy likes gadgets. Peter and Jane like starting fires, trying to kill each other and driving Mommy to drink. Written from the point of view of an exhausted mommy at the end of the day, it’s honest, it’s funny, and it’s a little bit sweary.

It is Mommy’s 39th birthday. She is staring down the barrel at a future of people asking if she wants to come to their yoga class, and book clubs, where everyone is wearing statement scarves and they are all ‘tiddly’ after a glass of Pinot Grigio. But Mommy does not want to go quietly into that good night of women with sensible haircuts who ‘live for their children’, boasting about Boy Child and Girl Child’s achievements. Instead, she clutches a large glass of wine, muttering FML over and over, and then remembers the gem of an idea she’s had…
