Before Liz Lemon, before "Weekend Update," before "Sarah Palin," Tina Fey was just a young girl with a dream: a recurring stress dream that she was being chased through a local airport by her middle-school gym teacher. She also had a dream that one day she would be a comedian on TV. She has seen both these dreams come true. At last, Tina Fey's story can be told....
A Waste of time!

If you could sum up Bossypants in three words, what would they be?
Totally F-ing Funny
What was one of the most memorable moments of Bossypants?
Her description of being a parent is really funny, especially the way she describes the total mania most moms feel and how every decision feels like life or death. Breast/Bottle, work/stay home, how to not go crazy and ruin your kids.

Raising Your Spirited Child
- By: Mary Sheedy Kurcinka
- Narrated by: Mary Sheedy Kurckina
- Length: 3 hrs and 5 mins
The spirited child, often called "difficult", can easily overwhelm parents, leaving them feeling frustrated and inadequate. Spirited kids are, in fact, simply more intense, sensitive, perceptive, persistent, and uncomfortable with change than the average child. Through vivid examples and a refreshingly positive viewpoint, Mary Sheedy Kurcinka offers parents emotional support and proven strategies for handling their spirited child.
Would love to hear the unabridged

I finally understand my daughter
Would you listen to Raising Your Spirited Child again? Why?
I have listened to this audio book twice now and will continue to until I can remember every little bit.
This book was referred to me by my daughter's pediatrician and it has really helped me to understand my daughter. I was constantly in a battle with her and now I finally feel like I get it and I get her. My house is so much less tense and she seems so much happier, as am I.
What’s an idea from the book that you will remember?
This book is filled with bits of information to show you how your "challenging" child is just seeing things differently and needing different responses from you. I know some parents do not want to hear that the problems their child is facing is their fault, but I absolutely have seen a difference in my daughter once I accepted her for the way she is and stopped trying to change her to what I thought she should be. Before reading this book I would have seen myself as a push-over but now I see it as just simply choosing my battles with her and sometimes letting her win.
