How Do You Tuck In a Superhero? by Rachel Balducci
When Rachel Balducci looks for material for her writing, she doesn't have to look far. Her subject matter can be found climbing through the window, hanging on to the edge of the roof, and rummaging through the refrigerator. Here she chronicles the exuberant, awesome life of boys through bizarre conversations overheard, unbelievable rules she's been forced to make, and the many episodes of boy behavior that continue to mystify mothers worldwide. From the care and feeding of her team, to travels out in public, to their wide-eyed adoration of Chuck Norris, this laugh-out-loud celebration joyfully explores the sweetly wild side of boyhood.
Rachel Balducci is a writer and the mother of five lively boys. Her website, www.testosterhome.net, has been nominated for several awards. Rachel is a former staff writer for the Augusta Chronicle and has been published in numerous magazines, including Good Housekeeping, Faith and Family, and The Word Among Us.
"Funny, heartwarming, edifying, and always uplifting, Rachel shares her joy for parenting in a way that will inspire you to be a better wife and mom. She teaches us that family life, with all of its ups and downs, is truly one of life's greatest gifts."--Lisa M. Hendey, author, The Handbook for Catholic Moms; founder, CatholicMom.com
"In this gem of a book, Rachel gives us a glimpse of her world. It's a field guide, a memoir, a mystery, and a love letter all in one."--Danielle Bean, mother of eight; editorial director, Faith & Family; author, My Cup of Tea and Mom to Mom, Day to Day
Laugh out loud funny no matter how many boys you have in your home.
A Hilarious Look into Life Raising Adventuresome Boys
You tuck in a superhero with cleverness and creativity, loads of love, heaping helpings of humor, and gobs of grace. After babysitting, teaching, tutoring, and nannying boys, I knew I would totally appreciate and find great hilarity in the antics recorded by a mother of five wild and crazy boys (and since the book was published one sweet little girl). I laughed hysterically at Rachel Balducci’s pithy writing, straight-up observations, and comical quotes. If you have taken care of boys or spent any length of time around them, you will likely identify with this book and find it highly amusing as much as insanely accurate in describing the temperament of many young boys.
How Do You Tuck in a Superhero? is a wonderful collection of true short stories, funny bulle Full Review...
