Description:

Brandi Haas is no domestic goddess . . . but she’ll tell you that motherhood is probably the hardest gig in the universe: “The pay is horrible, the wardrobe is pathetic, and your boss (although utterly adorable) is usually a tyrant."

Brandi brings her trademark wit from the popular blog to this new collection, sharing stories of birthday party mayhem, mommy martyrdom, and snow shoveling majesty.

The setting is Anytown, USA, among barking dogs, picket fences, and eclectic neighbors.

Tales from Suburbia: You Don’t Have to Be Crazy to Live Here, but It Helps will make you laugh, warm your heart, and let you know you’re not alone. Mothers (and fathers) will recognize themselves, their children, and the absurd situations that family life brings to us all.

My Thoughts: 

Brandi Haas has really hit on something that I think every mom who use to work goes through how neurotic we can be as stay at home moms, and how silly we can be when dealing with things.  This book is so funny at times.

This setting for this book is so true it could talk place any where it deals with different situations from being a Head Mom at school,   There all also various discussions on mom groups, Target field trips, good old Chuck E. Cheese's, and also deals with things like fundraisers, Girl Scouts.

I loved this book it was great and refreshing to read about Brandi's antics.  Definitely worth checking out and keeping on hand for many years to come.  I think all Mom's and Dad's should get this book and read all about it and see how much of it they find themselves doing. 

Can't wait to see what Brandi comes up next!  So glad she was able to share her book with us!
