Publisher's Summary

If you're young, old, or in the middle, get ready to laugh out loud with Erma Bombeck, America's funniest lady. This outrageously witty book proves that humor is the best way to keep on keel - even with a teenager in the house.

You've finally figured out what makes your child tick, when one day you wake up to discover a teenager under your roof. Suddenly life is filled with a whole new set of worries: Why isn't she dating? Why is she dating? Why can't he can't pass his driving test. Why is he out so late with the car?

Wise in the ways of teenagers, Erma Bombeck celebrates both the joys and difficulties of watching children grow into adults. Barbara Rosenblat provides the perfect voice for energetic young people and their baffled parents.

    Retired high school English teacher. I liked and worked with the at-risk student. Interested in about everything, but I love a good story.

    Story
    "Oldie but Goodie"

    Erma Bombeck is even now regarded as a premier writer of comedy. As a parent with grown children of her own, I remember all the times I said this phrase under my breath. Now it's coming true.

    Each of my children has at least one child that replicates almost exactly the antics they perpetrated when they were young. From permanent markers on the wall to small trucks down the toilet - or My Little Ponies in the case of the girls - my expectations have come true.

    For older parents, this is nostalgia, for younger ones, it's a prediction. A really funny 'read' in any case. Barbara Rosenblatt does an inimitable performance as narrator.

    Story
    "Adorable!"
    Would you listen to Just Wait 'Til You Have Children of Your Own! again? Why?

    Yes, this is the third time I listen to it. I love it. My type of listen during boring commutes and after a rough day at work.


    What did you like best about this story?

    The performance is outstanding, and the characters in the story are hillarious.


    What does Barbara Rosenblat bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    The performance was full of energy.


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    Not really moved, but entertained. I laughed from beginning to end.


    Any additional comments?

    Worth it!

    "Enjoy!!!"
    Where does Just Wait 'Til You Have Children of Your Own! rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    I enjoyed Erma when I was in college. I wish she was still with us. I have been listening to Laura Notaro books. I enjoyed her but miss having a mother's point of view.

    "Disappointment – Terrible"

    I use to like Erma’s stuff but this was a BIG disappointment. My girlfriend and I both listened to it and we both agreed that it was not very funny.
