In the spirit of Erma Bombeck, but for the Penelope Leach generation, comes Zarnow's warm, funny, on-target book about the joys, the guilts, the major and minor stresses of motherhood. "Her unabashed insights bring humor and reality together. Perfect for the parents of preschoolers".--Vicki Lansky, author of Practical Parenting.

Review: Husband Is the Past Tense of Daddy: And Other Dispatches from the Front Lines of Motherhood

User Review  - Becky - Goodreads

Its a little dated but still had some funny bits. She discusses everything from birthday parties to getting children to nap, and a whole chapter devoted to bashing her husband. It was an decent parenting humor book, not the best I've read, and not the worst either. Read full review
