Baby, I'm the Boss of Me

Baby, I'm the Boss of Me

“Baby, I’m the Boss of Me” is author Ruth Yunker’s humorous, heartfelt and unique take on the power and joy of growing older while maintaining one’s sanity, humor, and joie de vivre. With one entertaining and thought-provoking story after the other, Ruth Yunker describes her own road traveled to middle age. Now growing old is in sight. Rather than panicking, Yunker realizes this newest phase of her life is going to be an extraordinary journey, if she chooses to embrace it. Yunker has lived a multi-faceted and well-traveled life. She was a perennial New Kid at school. To her horror, she was the very last girl in her class to get a bra. She compares her infants heads just after birth lying quietly on her chest, to her mother’s head, moments after her death, lolling oh so heavily in the same place. She writes of nervously informing her grown daughter she is getting a facelift. She writes about her eyebrows turning white, about the deaths of President Kennedy and John Lennon, about eating with one’s hands, and the sudden need for this thing called Spanx. She mourns losing her power in the grocery store check out line, and triumphs in getting it back. Ruth Yunker has found the way to tackle the coming of old age that promises to be a fabulous continuation of the joy-filled life she’s living now. She plans to use optimism, power and humor, to carry her through. Her newest book “Baby, I’m the Boss of Me” tells you how you can too.
