Mom, Can I Do My Laundry at Your House?: Poems from Your Adult Child (Hardcover)
On our shelves
A perfect gift for mom, this humor poetry book celebrates the mother/child relationship, and how this relationship evolves as children grow up and become (or at least try to be) independent adults.
Even as a grown-up, sometimes all we need is a hug from our mom—and access to their washing machine. Via fifty short, relatable poems, Mom, Can I Do My Laundry at Your House? celebrates the amazing people who raised us and support us, even when we're still siphoning their streaming services and going grocery shopping in their fully stocked pantry well into adulthood.
I see that you're typing
And I will wait patiently for your text to come through
Because I know
You are only using
Your pointer finger
With poems ranging from cheeky to sweet, side-splitting to sincere, this collection is sure to make mom smile for Mother's Day, birthday, holiday, and just because!
RELATABLE CONTENT: Whether it's their tenacity and resilience, their kindness and patience, or the fact that they bought you the shirt you begged for and didn't wear a single time, not even once, this book touches upon all the things we are grateful for about the hardest working people in the business—moms!
FRESH AND UNIQUE: Most mother and child relationship books are sincere and serious, with a focus on younger children rather than those who have grown up and live on their own. Mom, Can I Do My Laundry at Your House? is perfect for the adult looking for something fun to give their mother!
EASY GIFT: Beautifully packaged and featuring playful illustrations throughout, this silly, sweet book is an excellent gift for Mother's Day, any special occasion that celebrates mom, or as a thank you for all she does every day of the year.
