Year-In-Review: The Entirely True Histories of a Perfectly Wretched Family

Rated 5.00/5 based on 2 reviews
Concussive diaper explosions and aircraft lavatories. (The Mile-High Club just isn’t the same thing after kids.) Death, destruction and debt. (How can a child be born $1800 in the hole?) Sibling rivalries of biblical proportions. (“I’m telling God!” “Oh yeah? I’m telling Mom!”) Sometimes the experience of training up kids seems more akin to experiencing a train wreck. More

About Maria Keffler

Maria Keffler lives in Arlington, Virginia, with her husband and three children. She blogs about things like tarantula-milking lawyers and the savagery of familial relationships at; she joined the board of a Uganda-based NGO because it's an amazing and life-changing organization (and because being on the board makes her seem serious and meaningful); and is presently learning how to cook without the smoke detector finding out about it.

Maria: I am in awe of your talent. This book is PURE COMIC GENIUS. I am an avid reader of the late, great Erma Bombeck. I must tell you that I have NEVER read a book so effectively, consistently hilarious. Your comic timing is impeccable; you are my new favorite author. I can only BEG YOU to consider writing more...more...MORE humor. Though this book is PRICELESS, you really should put a price tag on it--and quickly put out another for your fans. THANK YOU FOR PUTTING PEN TO PAPER and making the world laugh!

A very real and very funny account of raising children. A nice alternative to gushy, always happy, facebook status' regarding child-rearing.

There are few things that make me laugh heartily & out loud... this is one of them. Maria's witty, acerbic humor transforms the mundane happenings of parenthood into unforgettable adventures. Even non-parents will find this a thoroughly entertaining read. Looking forward to more of her musings on family life...

Hilarious! A must read for every mother who has surpresses thoughts of socially unacceptable expressions of love for her children. This author may be the next Erma Bombeck.
