Once upon a time, I belonged to a Book Club. We met once a month to discuss the book we all read and drink some wine. We read classics like To Kill a Mockingbird, trendy books like The Da Vinci Code, trashy books like The Nanny Diaries, and amazing books like Lovely Bones.
Now I sit on the couch (oh yes, laptop in lap) with American Idol on the tube. (Side note: American Idol is perfect laptop television … takes zero brainpower and it totally entertaining.) Anyway, here’s a book recommendation for ALL MOMS who want to read, but can’t find the time: The Three Martini Playdate. It’s more than a book filled with quick wit, subtle humor, and clever anecdotes. It’s a mantra.
Seriously, this is a funny book that can be read one short chapter at a time. There are some great tips that remind you that our kids are not going to break and it’s okay if we mess them up a bit. Here are some of my favorite chapters:
- Your Cost-Efffective Tomboy
- Screaming: Is it Necessary?
- Diaper Bag or Steamer Truck?
- Bedtime: Is 5:30 too early?
Happy reading! It’s worth the time – and a chapter can be completed during the 5 minute window between crawling into bed and crashing to sleep. It will inspire you to bust out the Grey Goose or SKYY at your next playdate.
