From Imperfect Parent, May 2008:
"Johnson doesn’t spend a lot of time feeling bad about the yelling or the kids sleeping in the grownup
bed for years on end or the detoured career. She’s not shopping for a revamp of her body, lifestyle, or
parenting skills. She’s not chronicling her life in order to amuse, send up, analyze, or offer tips. Her
aim is higher, deeper, truer....Every page is a vivid, funny, poignant scene of power struggles, lost
teeth, dead pets, the high drama and humdrum grind of life with kids. Yet there’s more. Cleverly
disguised as a collection of anecdotes by a harried new mother who might be just like someone you
know, the book is a lighthearted but gutsy meditation on time, mortality and surrender."
-- Julia Gibson, Imperfect Parent, May, 2008.
