Armed with a guide for motherhood in one hand and adoption papers in the other, Bruce and Linda Pratt welcomed two new sons into their family. All was peaceful, until Linda's army unit recalled her to active duty, leaving Bruce to raise their two sons, Blake and David, on his own. Unfortunately, Bruce was without the vital information from the qMother's Handbook, q and was forced to use his wits as he went along. Between dressing his sons entirely in the color brown (qchocolateq brown to be precise), and hanging plastic sheeting from the ceiling to spare it from the frequent, unexplained Jell-O explosions, Bruce had his hands full looking after his two energetic boys. Though slightly less conventional than Linda's education in motherhood, Bruce came up with his own unique and somewhat unconventional solutions to everyday problems. Thankfully, Bruce's elderly and somewhat eccentric father was always ready to assist with his eclectic adaptation of common sense and a few alternative tricks stuffed up his sleeves, just in case. Based on (well, almost) true stories, qDon't Get Mad, Get Evenq is an amusing glimpse into the world of improvised parenting. Only with love, imagination, and a little duct tape, can parents give children what they need to grow, and become all that God has planned for them.Caviar on a Stick On one of our many visits to Walmart, I looked for a new, variable speed drill and another much larger first aid ...
