Description
The Family Mix: Essays on Family Life from Midlife Mixtape is a collection of best loved essays on family life by Nancy Davis Kho that originally appeared on her blog, Midlife Mixtape. Parenting, school days, home life, pet ownership: Davis Kho tackles them all with a sharp eye, self- deprecating wit, and the occasional '80s music reference. Whether it's laying down ground rules for elementary school play dates that include the 50/50 rule (if you'll only believe 50% of what your kid reports back to you, she'll only believe 50% of what they've told her happens at your house,) the household mysteries her family is spared from knowing (from which closet does toilet paper materialize, anyway?) or the day she realized that she'd been usurped as Family Tech Support by her eleven year old kid, Davis Kho mines the funny from the mundane and comes up with gold. Well, at least pyrite. Given that Davis Kho came of age alongside Music Television and thinks almost exclusively in song lyrics, the eBook also contains a playlist inspired by the essay collection, with links to watch the back-to-back videos. Just like when you used to watch MTV in high school, minus the acne and social anxiety. This eBook is the first in a three part series: the Music Mix and the Modern Life Mix arrive late fall 2013!
