This is a great read for any mother who doesn't take parenting too seriously (a.k.a. ME!!!).
This is a great read for anyone who "gets" the craziness that comes along with raising boys (yeah, yeah...I know that I'm only raising one, but he's a doozy!).
This is a great read for anyone who longs to wear dresses and heels every day and pass it off at effortless.
This is a great read for anyone who loves NYC too.
Here are some quotes that really drew me in:
"...chronic fatigue syndrome, formerly known as motherhood."
"Dressing well actually takes very little effort, but it makes a huge difference in the way I feel and the way others feel about me. It is just as easy to pull on a simple dress or tailored trousers as it is to pull on a pair of tatty mom jeans."
"I have noticed that most of them stand in front of the toilet, hands on their hips, penis thrust in the direction of the toilet as they release their man water. "Oh really?" I yell at them. "You choose this moment to not touch the damn thing!?" How is this evolved? How is this the dominant gender?"
"...the culture of Disney is insidious."
"How did spreading holiday cheer become women's work?"
"Tanqueray martinis straight up with olives, because a medicated parent is a happy parent."
This book makes you realize that it's okay to dress pretty and not pick up your kids for that very reason. It makes you realize that just because you have a weekend in the country, you do not have to leave the house or step in mud. It makes you realize that life isn't perfect, we shouldn't expect it to be, and maybe that's what makes it so great.
I would definitely recommend this one and it's a quick read!
