Linda’s Book Obsession Reviews “Mama, Mama, Only Mama” by Lara Lillibridge, Skyhorse Publishing, March 5, 2019 for Suzy Approved Book Tours
Lara Lillibridge has combined a diary, journals, recipes and other intriguing information in her Memoir “Mama, Mama and Only Mama” The Genres for this book are Memoir, and Humor. The author gives witty advice on” divorce, dating, parenting, crafting, and simple recipes.” (Stated above loosely from the cover) Some of the recipes involve opening a bag from the freezer, or a can. Some seem like science experiments, but no stress, so all is fine.
Parenting is difficult, and the author has a sense of humor when it comes to her children.Things just seem to work out, no rhyme or reason. Lara Lillibridge has a way of describing what can be as sticky situations, and manages to go with the flow.
I found myself chuckling at many of the situations in Lara’s life. Dating is also very interesting. Some of it is a learning experience. Lara gave one of her first boyfriends a key to her home where she lived with her children. She realized that it might not be a safe idea and learned from that.
Lara has nick names for her children, Big Pants, and Little Pants. (She also has nick names for her ex-husband, and boyfriend) Seriously, Lara does give some advice based on her experiences that can make other women feel more comfortable. This was a delightful and fun read, and I would highly recommend it.
