This irreverent, eye-popping memoir from an irrepressible mother of six gives the inside scoop on raising a large hoard of boys in the jungle of New York City—without sacrificing your sanity, or your stilettos. In colorful stories marked by her acerbic wit, Project Runway star Laura Bennett teaches us that you can still drive a minivan (if you must) without scrapping your six-inch heels.
Laura flips conventional wisdom on its head, while taking us on a wild ride through domestic chaos:
“Get your oxygen first, moms.” Laura explains why the airlines have it right—if mom isn’t breathing, no one will be.
“Of course I lie about my age. I tell people that I am older than I actually am. ‘Wow, 50? You look great!’ I may not be able to compete with thirty year-olds, but I can kick 60-year-old butt.”
“If things get too overwhelming, I just schedule myself a dentist appointment. There is nothing like a root canal to secure some guilt-free me time.”Riotous, charming, and brutally honest, this fashion icon blows the lid off the traditional role of wife and mother.
