Hilarious true stories of raising twins from the author of the Ironic Mom blog: "Shirtliffe is awesome and so is this book." -Jenny Lawson When Leanne Shirtliffe and her husband, Chris, discovered she was pregnant with twins while they were living abroad in Bangkok, they cried laughing. Then they just cried. And finally, they got on with the incredible, hilarious adventure of raising two kids in Asia's city of sin. In Don't Lick the Minivan, Shirtliffe explores the hazards of everyday life with children, recounting her time as a parent in both Thailand and North American suburbia with humor and touching insight. Even if she can't teach her kids how to tie their shoelaces, she comes to realize she's a good enough mom. At least good enough to start saving for their therapy fund. And possibly her own. "Comic gold." -Publishers Weekly "Witty commentary on the common ups and downs of being a new parent, times two." -Kirkus Reviews "Shirtliffe writes with hilarity and poignancy as to the trials and pains (literally) of motherhood. She is our new Erma Bombeck!"-Elizabeth Boyle "Laugh-out-loud-funny. I swear, she's living in my house and taking notes." -Jill Smokler
