"Jeni Decker is five-foot nothing and one hundred and [redacted] pounds a self described roly-poly, forty-something, Reubenesque bon-bon of a gal, often called cute but never sexy. She has two sons with autism on opposite ends of the spectrum (Jake and Jaxson), a husband who prefers hunting to household chores, an Australian Shepherd named Sugar, and an albino frog named Humbert Humbert. This is her story -- a brash, personal, and some-times shocking memoir of one woman s determination to raise two healthy kids with autism and keep her sanity in the process."

in all honesty as a mother to a child with autism i could not enjoy this book, i went into this book expecting to hear about the hard ships of raising special needs children but instead its basically a book of her complaining, her talking about her other books and movies and lots of talk about poop which i get is a thing with one of her sons but i don't need to hear about it every page.

Wonderful book, I laughed out loud during some of it. really helped me gain perspective in my situation. I recommend it to anyone with children, whether on the spectrum or not.
