Mommies Who Drink: Sex, Drugs, and Other Distant Memories of an Ordinary Mom

Mommies Who Drink: Sex, Drugs, and Other Distant Memories of an Ordinary Mom

From the book description: "For young single women, every night is Ladies' Night. For Brett Paesel and her friends, Friday happy hour is all they get-if they can wrangle the babysitting. Like most mommies, they support each other through pregnancies, sleep deprivation, and the need to talk about it all. Instead of meeting at the playground, they convene at the local watering hole while sipping Black and Tans and flirting with the cute bartender." I really enjoyed this book. Sometimes it's hard to believe it's non-fiction - it's so OUT THERE, especially the thoughts of big, hairy penises. Mommies Who Drink is hilarious, real life, and down to earth. As the book goes on, Brett becomes more comfortable in motherhood, and her observations on parenthood become more endearing and poignant. A great baby shower gift for the expantant, yet hip, mother.

Book description: "Shelley Green, a nice top-of-her-class med school grad from Queens, has just been hired by the toniest, trendiest practice in Manhattan. A superb doctor, with a kid-friendly touch and a genius for diagnoses, Shelley soon becomes an Upper East Side necessity to the fabulously rich-with-kids crowd. Now shes dressing in Fendi, weekending in the Hamptons and baffling her schoolteacher fianc, Arthur, with her trappings of power and privilege. Shelley even takes the plunge and cheats with a blue-blood hunk who never seems to have his checkbook around. Finally, disgusted with East Side manic mommies, and busy, distant dads, Shelley begins to see the bleakness under the fashionable faade. Will she win back the love of her true-blue, but sorely tested fianc? Our moneys on Shelley. " I predict that reading books is going to make a big come back due to the inavailability of iPods, GameBoys, and laptaps on commercial flights. In light of that, "24-Karat Kids" is perfect light plane reading. It's funny, well written, and very entertaining. The only disappointment is that the story seems too good to be true. But who cares when you're having fun?
