Hilarity for Catholic Moms
I just finished reading Susie Lloyd's Bless Me, Father, For I Have Kids a few days ago. Susie Lloyd is the Catholic home schooling mother of seven who amusingly writes about her life as such. Her book is entertaining and captivating. I picked up the book expecting to read a chapter or two and wound up reading about a third of the book in a very short time span. Then, I got up, did a few things around the house and found a few moments to dive back into the book. Before I knew it, I had read the entire book. It was the funniest book I've read in a long time and one I simply could not put down and stay away from for very long.
If you're a mom, you'll find yourself nodding your head in agreement as you read the about the antics of Susie Lloyd's adventures in mothering. The book is punctuated with many side splitting moments of hilarity. There were many moments while reading this book that I found myself laughing so hard that it hurt.
You don't need to be a home schooling mother to fully appreciate this book. I think this book will likely appeal more to Catholic moms, but I think any mom with a sense of humor will thoroughly enjoy this book. Actually, probably anyone with a sense of humor will find this book entertaining. My eight year old daughter was paging through this book and she thought it was pretty funny, too. I thoroughly enjoyed this book and I highly recommend it to any mother who could use a good laugh.
I received a complimentary copy of Bless Me, Father, For I Have Kids from Sophia Institute Press in exchange for my honest review of the book.
