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.With a poignant voice and a fresh style that makes this memoir read like the best women's fiction, Paesel navigates mommyhood in all its forms: the ecstatic, the terrifying, the tedious, the hilarious, the trascendental, and the sticky.
Paesel's laugh-out-loud perspective will appeal to all women who are braving the new world of motherhood, where the secret question on their minds at playgroup is "When is it too early to start drinking?"
"This is Seinfeld but raunchy and L.A. with a full cast of potty-mouthed moms. No wonder it's already optioned by HBO." (Publishers Weekly)
"Funny and silly and true. I mean, I'm not a mother, and to be honest I don't drink, but I can tell you that this book is better than a giant bong hit. And I'm not even high right now." (Sarah Silverman)
