Publisher's Summary

From the North Carolina Piedmont to the forests of Hungary, Jody Mace examines the mundanity of everyday life and finds the kernel of eternal truth. Or else she just makes one up. Contemplate Schrödinger's human head in your dryer or find a way to make peace with Barbie. A journalist and freelance writer in Charlotte, Jody has collected a dozen of her essays on family life that will have you thinking deeply and laughing heartily. Capturing the wry wit of these stories is Linda Velwest, whose characterizations and deft delivery let the humor percolate, and the poignancy leave you with a sigh. Linda has narrated short stories and novels from science fiction to romance, and even a couple of cookbooks.

    Story
    "Seeing Elves, Getting receipts, and dolls ... "

    This book reminds us, as parents, to find the joys where we can, look for positivity in our children, and to embrace the moments and laughter as our children grow. Enjoyable to relax, listen, and reflect. The narrator sounded a bit nervous; her voice a bit quivery, but after a while it added to the wonderment.

    "Great"

    What wonderful stories! Made me see my parenting journey in a whole new light. I'm totally stealing the elf idea on our next long car ride.

    Story
    "'Watch Your Back Barbie' and More Stories 🔎"


    This was a really fun book to listen to. I think that my favorite was when the author told the story of getting run over by a school bus.

    The best part of it was I didn't hear anything about politics!

    The narration was fun and upbeat, very engaging. I was hooked from the first story. I did speed up the narration to match the tempo of the stories.

    The portion called Watch Your Back Barbie was repeated. A quick clip from the editor/author will remedy.

    Warnings: Some strong language
