5 Laugh-out-loud Books for Moms

Laughing mom reading book

If you can’t give your favorite mom an all-expenses-paid trip to a wine country spa, give her the second best thing: laughter. Humorous stories, to be exact! Luckily for hard working, self-sacrificing moms everywhere, seasoned parents have walked in the same shoes and lived to write about it.

The following standouts — several of the newly published — are equally enjoyable in a flurry of intense reading or in short bursts. What they have in common is that they highlight in very different ways the simultaneous absurdity and importance of parenting. So for Mother’s Day, delight her with something she really won’t want to put down — unlike a wailing baby.
