Publisher's Summary

From the North Carolina Piedmont to the forests of Hungary, Jody Mace examines the mundanity of everyday life and finds the kernel of eternal truth. Or else she just makes one up. Contemplate Schrödinger's human head in your dryer or find a way to make peace with Barbie. A journalist and freelance writer in Charlotte, Jody has collected a dozen of her essays on family life that will have you thinking deeply and laughing heartily. Capturing the wry wit of these stories is Linda Velwest, whose characterizations and deft delivery let the humor percolate, and the poignancy leave you with a sigh. Linda has narrated short stories and novels from science fiction to romance, and even a couple of cookbooks.

Seeing Elves, Getting receipts, and dolls ...

This book reminds us, as parents, to find the joys where we can, look for positivity in our children, and to embrace the moments and laughter as our children grow.
Enjoyable to relax, listen, and reflect.
The narrator sounded a bit nervous; her voice a bit quivery, but after a while it added to the wonderment.

What wonderful stories! Made me see my parenting journey in a whole new light. I'm totally stealing the elf idea on our next long car ride.
