I Didn’t Know You Could Make Birthday Cake From Scratch – Parenting Blunders from Cradle to Empty Nest
Humorous essays for every parent who ever stuck a candle in a peanut butter sandwich and called it a birthday cake. Or ever tried to crowdfund her child’s braces. Or ever told her child to shut up and be quiet so she could finish reading a parenting magazine.
About Dorothy Rosby (South Dakota Author)
Dorothy Rosby is the author of three books of humorous essays: Alexa’s a Spy and Other Things to Worry About, Humorous Essays on the Hazards of Our Time; I Used to Think I Was Not That Bad and Then I Got to Know Me Better and I Didn’t Know You Could Make Birthday Cake from Scratch, Parenting Blunders from Cradle to Empty Nest. She’s currently working on her fourth book and hoping to give it a shorter title—something like It’s Finally Done or Best Seller. Dorothy is also a syndicated humor columnist whose column appears across the West and Midwest. Her writing has won honors from the South Dakota Newspaper Association and the National Federation of Press Women. Her work has been included in many anthologies including My Funny Valentine, My Funny Major Medical, Bedpan Banter, Your Glasses are on Top of Your Head, Columnists: While We’re Still Around and three Black Hills Literary Journals. She lives in the Black Hills of South Dakota, 20 miles from Mount Rushmore, something she’s very proud of though she’s not on it. Yet.
