I heart Erma Bombeck.
This is the woman that taught me more about motherhood than any pseudo-celebrity book I could find on the shelf and a stack of parenting magazines could ever hope to do. Where else would I find the guts to rinse off a pacifier found clinging to the coffee grounds in the garbage or give myself the freedom for a little drinky-poo to celebrate another "no-baby" month?
