Being a "Perfect" Mother

I saw this today at Barnes and Noble and just had to get it. I have their other two books, and I'm sure this is going to be just as good. It has recipes in it, plus rules for being a good Southern Mother.
Example: Always wear nice underwear - you may be killed in a car wreck, and you don't want the EMS workers to take one look at your poor dead little body and say, Well, she certainly wasn't a lady." That would be a fate worse than death.
Of course, I'm trying to be the perfect Northern mother, with lots of Southern tendencies. Today, my 4 year old said, "Mama, look at that car, that's just tacky!" And it was! My heart swelled with pride, as I wiped away a tear. The boy is learning!

LOL) My boys travelled with their navy blazers but prefered to go commando... what would they have thought had our plane crashed?!!!!
