Publisher's Summary

When does 1 + 1 = 3 (or more)? When you've got a baby on the way. Part of that new math, says number-one New York Times best-selling author Jill Conner Browne, whom USA Today calls "just plain funny", includes the addition of an outsize sense of humor to balance the equation of your growing family.
The Sweet Potato Queens' Guide to Raising Children for Fun and Profit is a hilarious (though not scientifically tested) wink at the time-honored mysteries of parenting, for anybody who has ever had a kid or has ever known one, knows that the experience is neither fun nor profitable - so, you might as well laugh!
As each generation begins its hopeful, happy, and, yes, sometimes harrowing journey together as Parent and Child, together they spawn a new body of "knowledge", the nuances of which will elude the Experts every time.
Here are stories of the things we do for Mother Love - or the most incredibly full-time volunteer job ever - and tips guaranteed not to be found in any other parenting guide.

Loved it!

I waited a long time for this book to become available on Audible, and it was well worth the wait. If you loved the other SPQ books, you won't be disappointed. If you're a Mom, you will appreciate the wit and insight of this amazing woman.

Not as good as the love book by far. Boring.

Boring. Maybe it was the reading. The book of love was much funnier in my opinion.
