Pee in Your Pants Funny Aug 19, 2007
You know how you always think things in your head, but don't say them out loud...this mom writer does just that! This book is hysterical and just what busy, stressed out moms need after a hard day being mommy. I loved it!!!
Peanut Butter, Playdates & Prozac: Tales from a Modern Mom Jul 17, 2007
Peanut Butter, Playdates & Prozac is a delightfully honest guide for parents. As the author states on the first page "I am certainly no esteemed expert. (One look at my kids will verify that!). But, I am a little less annoying than your mother-in-law and a lot more honest than all of those helpful books".
The advice in this book is direct, realistic, and most importantly reminds the reader of the intrinsic humour in those situations that usually drive parents crazy (something we all need to be reminded of sometimes). This book also challenges the reader to remember the ultimate purpose of parenting- to love and enjoy our children in all that they do and all that they experience.
I recommend this book to all new parents. Hopefully this book will make you realize that a loved child is more important than a clean house. I also think that veteran parents (if there is such thing) will enjoy this book as it will remind them of those moments that seemed so grave at the time but now are cherished memories.
For All Modern Moms Mar 5, 2007
Arlene has written a hilarious book about "being Mommy" these days, my favorite is her "lists". I understand everything she says, and enjoyed how she expresses aspects of modern motherhood in a light-hearted, entertaining voice. It was just right for my end of the day wind-down. Did I mention I loved the lists?
A must for every mom who needs a laugh! Jan 12, 2007
LOVED this book! Saw the author on TV & knew I had to read her book! Bought it to read and give as gifts to my best mom friends. You can read this book in one sitting and you're guarenteed to laugh out loud the whole time!! (My husband thought I was insane, I was laughing so loud!) Then you keep it around to go back to whenever you need a quick pick-me-up. Highly recommend this one for every mom who has a life filled with peanut butter, playdates, or prozac!
Waste of time and money Dec 20, 2006
This book reads like someone's primitive journal entries that they published themselves in their spare time for some quick extra spending money. There are 3 very basic grammatical mistakes in just the first 20 pages! The font is oversized, in what seems like an attempt to make the content seem more substantial than it is. The books is half the length of a normal book for not much less the price. Really all that it is: a bunch of random lists, made-up lyrics to kids' songs with adult themed words, and anecdotes that the author's own family would be hard pressed to find funny. I wish that I had noticed it was so short (94 pages) before buying it, and that would have clued me in a little. The contents of this book would have better suited to being a magazine article; that is about the depth of what you get for your money. If you are looking for a book on par with many of the wonderful books out there in this genre (of which I have read many), SKIP this one - hoepfully you will not waste your time and money on it like I did.
