Reviewed by Cindy Loven

As the mom of two sons, Rachel Balducci's book had me howling in laughter, it also had me reminiscing about the antics of my own two sons (one now passed on). 
Rachel's sons and their total seriousness about the funny things of life, really was a refreshing book.  I sat and read this in one morning while listening to my house being re-roofed. 
Giggling and sometimes outright yelling in laughter I would read the antics or sayings to my now sixteen year old son, he even had to laugh, even though agreeing with mom isn't cool at this stage of his life. 
Of all the stories she told my favorite story was her boys' fascination with the picture of the gray whale's sex organ being bigger than their Suburban.  This book truly is a great read, and it holds great insight into how boys think and are hard-wired.  As moms we think like girls, boys do not think like girls.  No where even close to it, things we wonder at the aburdity of, seem normal every day happenstance to them. 
Most definitely a book to share with a mom of toddler boys.  I look forward to reading her next book, and especially hearing how her five boys learn to live with their new baby sister.  Congratulations Balducci family.  Great book!! Five stars all the way!  203 pages $US 12.99
