And so, for anyone who is breathlessly doggy paddling in the high seas of mom-dom, this book is definitely for you.
Peeing in Peace explores the myriad of funny, poignant, and all-too-familiar dilemmas faced by today's moms - such as going back to work; negotiating other mothers at the local pre-school; giving up your beloved sports car for a mini-van; dealing with biting "play-date piranhas;" or the demise of afternoon nooky with your husband. Feldman and Manessis Corporon describe all these predicaments and quandaries with candor, honesty, and a great deal of wit.
The most important message of the book is that busy moms - facing all these kinds of dilemmas - need a community. They need other moms to share their stories with. They need confidantes and co-conspirators who will confess, "I bought Dunkin Donuts for the preschool bake sale too" or "I only arranged a play-date with Ms. Jones's kids so I could nose around her McMansion." Through their book, Feldman and Manessis Corporon become our mommy-comrades. And they inspire us to go out and find more.
Peeing in Peace is truly a lifesaver...and it also happens to be so cute and natty, you can carry it in your purse!
1. "The Perfect Stranger" by Lucy Kaylin,
2. "I Was a Really Good Mom Before I Had Kids: Reinventing Modern Motherhood" by Trisha Ashworth & Amy Nobile or
3. "What's the Matter With Mommy?: Rantings of a Reluctant Stay-at-home Mom" by Kelley Cunningham.
An equally perfect gift for the new mommy who's heading back to the office or the one who has decided to "stay home", the giggles provoked by "Peeing in Peace" can ease the toughest of Mommy transitions. I highly recommend it!
Will be passing this book along to another Role Mommy who I think will enjoy it as much as I did.
