Item description for If It's Not One Thing, It's Your Mother by Anita Renfroe...
Overview Either you are one or you've got one. If you fall into both columns, you've scored double in Emotional Scrabble. How do you deal with this? Ignore it? Adjust? Cry? Return to fetal position? Why not laugh instead? With one eye on her own mother, one eye on herself, and one eye on her own teenage daughter (okay, so she has three eyes?), Anita will help you laugh your way through: A mom's need to feed Smotherly love-the desire to over-protect the cubs Why Mother's Day is the landmine of all holidays The incurable Momsense-Compulsive Counsel Disorder For less than you would spend on a box of chocolate therapy, you can get yourself some honest, hilarious, southern-fried wisdom from a chick who knows what it's like on both sides of this fence. You'll laugh, you'll cry, you'll either need Depends or an epidural. Sorta like motherhood.

A laugh a minute Oct 17, 2007
Anita really hits the nail on the head so many times. I could not stop myself from laughing at her humorous way of sharing special times about her relationship with her mother and her daughter. She had some really insightful advice, that is biblically directed.
It made me think about my relationship with my mother and my two daughters.
It was a truly great read and hard to put down.
What's a Momwich?! Sep 1, 2007
If you want that question answered, then read this book. Among other things, Anita encourages us to find humor and acceptance in things we cannot change... especially with our mothers and/or daughters!
Even if you have a great relationship with your mother, this is a great book that refuses to let you put it down!
If It's Not One Thing, It's Your Mother Jul 18, 2007
Excellent title. It grabbed my attention right away and made me want to find out more about this book. The title also held promises of a touch of humour and real insight into the nature of mothers and daughters. Even with these extremely high expectations, I was not disappointed. I laughed, I cried, I remembered, and then I handed the book to my daughter to read.
If It's Not One Thing, It's Your Mother is a collection of memories and tips about being a first time parent. All those little things that took us completely off guard and that we wish our mother, our sister, or a really good girlfriend would have told us. Many of these situations made us cry at the time but are now our most cherished memories.
The book also tells the other side of the story, as well. Many Baby Boomers are part of that Oreo lifestyle: raising children and taking care of elderly parents at the same time. The author has some experience in that aspect. Her household contains three generations. In fact, much of the author's life has been spend living in multigenerational homes, often by choice. There are a lot of benefits, but like any family, it takes a little work to keep chaos from ruling.
Best of the Best Jan 19, 2007
Anita once again has hit home with another great read. Not only is this book funny but it is true and filled with great insights and helps in understanding your own family dynamics. Having lost my mother just before purchasing this book, it was refreshing and a treasure to see how her life is still revealed through her daughters and grand-daughters. I pray I leave a leagacy to my girls that is just as wonderful. You have to read this book! Laugh and cry, or, laugh until you cry, either way you will enjoy Anita Renfroe's take on life.
