Grime & Punishment

By Melissa Jarvis
"As I read this book I kept thinking what fun it must be to have Melissa Jarvis for a mother. Her humorous and wry reports from the ’hood tickled my mind and warmed my heart. Every mom will find the territory familiar, but Jarvis gives it a fresh, laugh-out-loud perspective."
— Carol Saline co-author Mothers & Daughters, Sisters, and Best Friends

"Welcome to the Motherhood stayed in my hands until the last page. Each chapter is a long, delicious drink of wicked humor with motherhood observations that read like a naughty confession. Witty to the last drop—I could get addicted."
— Suzette Martinez Standring VP, National Society of Newspaper Columnists
Welcome to the Motherhood: Grime & Punishment celebrates the hilarity of modern family life and the daily battle of wits that is motherhood. Melissa Jarvis — author of the popular "Family Album" column (appearing weekly in southern New Jersey’s Courier-Post and occasionally in other Gannett newspapers) — offers a warm and funny look at motherhood in the best Erma Bombeck tradition. Raising a family is the most important job in the world according to Jarvis. She wrote this book to help moms everywhere laugh their way through the on-the-job training.
