    This was a hilarious book, kind of lame every so often but overall a great memoir about the antics of a very large family.

    I loved this book. I read it about 15 years ago and I can still remember some of the lines. Teresa Bloomingdale discusses raising 10 children and it's funny from the title to the last page. If you have children you will nod your head as she talks about things like: who would put peanut butter in the refrigerator? If you don't have children you will understand why sometimes your friends who do have children seem just a few fries short of a happy meal. Worth every second!!!

    This is my go-to book when I need to laugh, feel better about motherhood, or just need a boost. Bless this Nebraskan mother of ten!

    This is the second time I have read this book and just like the first time I found it as enjoyable from the first page to the last. Mrs. Bloominton has you smiling from page one till the end. She shares her life with you. She lets you seen how she raised 10 kids with her husband and still kept her humor and wit about her. This is a very quick, easy, funny ,witty read

    really enjoyed this read... All the joys of motherhood in the eyes of a lady with TEN kids! I couldn't relate to everything considering I only have 2 kids and it's not the 1970's but I laughed a lot and could relate to so many different situations.

    Laughter, tears and crises of raising ten chilrdren. Wonderful, easy read. (A kinder, softer Erma Bombeck.)

    I read this book many years ago, when I happened to see it in paperback and was intrigued by the title. The book is about a family - a growing family - that kept growing up to and including ten children. As Teresa Bloomingdale wrote, in the mid-West, back in the fifties it was quite fashionable and acceptable to have a huge family. The book was extremely enjoyable for me because it gave a humorous, but true portrayal of life in a large family. Looking back, it, sadly, was reflective of an era that is gone forever. I would recommend this book.

    A woman has 10 pregnancies in 12 years. And she tells about what it is like to have such a house full of little ones. Hilarious book. I could relate on so many levels and the way she tells it just makes me realize that being a mom of lots of kids can be fun and funny. A good reminder to look on the bright side. And it makes me a bit scared about what life will be like with teenagers!!! If you want a quick, funny read- go for this one!

    This book is very dated at this point but omg is it funny as hell!!!Unfortunately you'd have to get it from an out of print dealer. The references to naming children and the havoc that picking wrongly can create alone makes it worth reading.Bloomingdale is very much like Bombeck. Loved the book when I was a teen and still love it, even moreso now that I have kids of my own.Find it, buy it, read it!!!

    Laugh out loud funny in parts--well if you yourself have a lot of kids. Droll storytelling from a mother of 10. I preferred the first half of the book to the second, but that may be because I'm not as far along in this motherhood stuff.A lot of delightful quotes, plus a lot of proof that this business hasn't changed much in the last 60 years.

    I read this a VERY, VERY long time ago. I saw it on a shelf at the thrift store I frequented at the time and the title caught me. I read the flyleaf and decided it sounded like a fun read. And it was! I don't remember a whole lot of detail, but I do remember laughing as I read the antics of that large family!

    I picked this up at a bookstore with my dad many years ago and I have to wonder how it influenced me. I was probably in 5th or 6th grade reading a book on motherhood. I remember it being funny and making large family life seem attractive.

    This is a very special book, written by a woman from the area I currently live in. While dated, it is a splice of catholic life in the midwest. Funny, admirable and unforgettable. I was so sad to hear that this author has passed away and her books are out of print.

    I began reading this series when I just had one baby. I laughed and laughed. I bought copies of all her books and even wrote the author a fan email which she answered. I am now passing these books down to my children who are having children.

    I read this when I was on an Erma Bombeck kick and it fit right in. Hilarious and interesting.
