The Sock Puppet Factory: Twenty Funnier-than-Average Essays on Parenting, is a selection of humor essays culled from author, Teece Aronin's long-running blog, Chipped Demitasse. The book moves chronologically through her children's development, starting in infancy where Aronin's distain of people who complain about babies in restaurants is succinctly summed up: "True. Who doesn't hate a laughing baby?" The essays end in the kids' late teens. Unless she is obviously pulling your leg, you can trust that these essays are based very snugly on Aronin's own experiences, so pure and perfect in their own right that no embellishment is needed. In the book's first essay, Aronin tees off with that dilemma most parents face at some point: how to discourage your child from swearing when you're shocked and struggling not to laugh. Then there's Aronin's discovery that her very young son has a morbid side. In the book's titular essay, *The Sock Puppet Factory, *Aronin blends sarcasm with affection as she writes about being a late-life parent with bad knees and children willing to do her laundry, much of which never makes it back up the basement stairs. The Sock Puppet Factory contains 20 essays and is approximately 55 pages long.
