Have your funny bone tickled non-stop with this book. You will laugh from the first paragraph to the last.

Stories of a stay-at-home mom from the grocery store to any holiday. The author has great tales that will entertain you. The author said they are takeoffs of things that really happened to her, and they are quite funny.

You will be taken on a daily ride through the life of this mom with two children and a lot of disorganization but with a mom who gets things done right under the wire. If you have children, you will relate. If you do not have children, you may be glad you do not.

This is quite an entertaining, light read. It isn't very long, but long enough to let you enjoy and relate. 5/5

You Will Really Enjoy This
By Faye E. Hicks

This is a wonderful collection of stories! The author's ability to bring out the humor of everyday situations and her unique take on family life had me laughing throughout. If you're a parent, I am sure the comical situations in these stories will bring back some of your fond (and humorous) memories of raising your family. If, like me, you're not a parent - you'll probably be wiping your brow in relief a time or two, in between wiping the tears of laugher from your eyes. My personal favorite is the Halloween story. I've read it a few times since I downloaded this book and it never fails to give me a laugh. So grab a coffee and settle in front of a cozy fire for a self-indulgent treat. I challenge you to put this book down once you get started.

Postcards From Home Review
Review by: Donna D'Amour on Feb. 15, 2012 :
Postcards From Home will at times bring a tear to your eye, a laugh to your belly or a lump to your throat. Sylvia Morice and her husband Gary raised two wonderful children but it wasn’t always easy. From Erin’s colicky nights and endless tears to Shane’s ability to say just the wrong thing at just the wrong time, it took its toll. Many parents will relate to the little girl who was “bothered” by her clothes and hated every sock ever made so much that she would remove her shoes and socks just as the school bus arrived. “Eating My Words” is a light-hearted look at coping with children who are ravenous all the time, leading the parents to late night pizza trysts.

The chaos and unpredictability of parenthood sends Morice back to her own younger days in the search of tradition and consistency in “The More Things Change,” a heart-warming look at a simpler time. In “Home for the Holidays,” a lovely Christmas memory of the grandparent’s farm and extended family sharing the season and visiting neighbours to see their trees, she considers her modern day rituals and wonders what memories will be part of her children’s future Christmases. What she calls her ‘Currier and Ives’ memory is warm and reassuring.

Her days includes the many demands on a stay-at-home Mom for contributions to bake sales and Halloween costumes, home maintenance, meal preparation and a driving schedule that would have most heads spinning. And on those rare occasions when she and her husband do get out for an evening with other adults, she’s faced with those dreaded questions, “What do you do at home all day?” or even worse, “Do you Work?” She comes up with a few creative answers.

“Tokens of Undying Love” will touch your heart as Morice clears clutter and keeps bumping into memories. In “Honey, We’ve been Transferred” Morice is the parent who has to convince the children that everything will be fine when she herself is dreading yet another move and the friends, community and ‘home’ left behind.

These are warm, funny stories that show the joys and frustrations of parenthood. Morice admits to stealing some lines from her children–Erin’s ‘If Shane had a paper face…’– in “Out of the Mouths of Babes” and embellishing just a tad, but that just gives the stories a ring of authenticity and produces a tongue-in-cheek giggle. Postcards From Home is a delightful read.
