Fiona Nell's Slummy Mummy.
Think of it as "Bridget Jones with kids"; lots of British humor. Apparently the British schools, and parents involved in those schools, are just as annoying as here in America.
Any book about motherhood by Erma Bombeck
Sarah Ban Breathnach's Mrs. Sharp's Traditions:
A reference book about family based on Victorian ideals and customs on how a family should be run, and enjoyed. Its told in a quirky way as the Author is "the voice" of the fictitious Victorian housewife and mother, Mrs. Sharp. Its full of history and really good practical tips and sweet projects for you and your children to do together as a family, all year long. This is what helped launch me into the role of an official "crafty mom" with a higher purpose.
