The bite-sized edition of the bestselling humor guide for moms who want to look their best for their man while cleaning his castle!

Go back to the past, when moms were moms, kids knew their place, and life was exactly as it should be!

Now in a classic mini edition! The nostalgic advice—all presented in period kitsch—includes sending the very little ones off to bed before hubby returns from work so they won’t disturb him; carefully preparing a homemade meal every night, and making sure everyone is at the table for dinner

About the Author

Ladies’ Homemaker Monthly was a preeminent homemaker’s journal at the turn of the last century. Located in the Midwest, its editors strongly advocated the temperance movement and old-fashioned family values. Their most famous adage was “You can judge a good woman by how many well-dressed children she has and the contentment of her husband.”
