I read this over the course of a day while the kids were visiting with Grandma. It was definitely worth spending what little kid-free time I had reading. I actually laughed out loud several times. When I had my first baby I thought I was the only one who was driven to drink (not really but it sounded lovely at the time) by the indignities of parenthood. Now with three under the age of five I am immune to middle of the night Lego injuries, avoid oneupmanship mommy groups and know exactly how far poop can explode in every direction out of a diaper. What I didn't have until this book was the ability to express all of those experiences with humor and a cocktail.

I will be including Reasons Mommy Drinks in baby shower gifts from now on.

I loved this book! It's short, hysterical and so spot on! These guys are clearly Moms who have a sense of humour, and I can't believe how many of their observations could have been from my life. I'm buying it for everyone who's either pregnant or just had a baby - there's no better medicine than a laugh for someone who's about to enter baby madness!!

A must for every woman who stumbled into adulthood with a combination of black humor and a Black Russians, and finds herself struggling to balance career and motherhood.

To the reviewer who expected "depth" from a book called "Reasons Mommy Drinks"...seems the problem was the expectation, not the book.

Their eponymous blog is similarly hilarious. To determine if the book's brand of humor is for you, search the title and Dora the Explorer. If you laugh, buy the book for everyone you know. If you don't get it, grow a sense of humor. *Then* buy the book.

We sent this book to our daughter-in-law who is expecting her/our first at the age of 36. The book was accompanied by a card that said: "LIfe as you know it is Over!".....for a while. Liz thought the book was hysterically funny, We hoped to ease and soothe a few worries of this young professional woman about becoming a mommy.... while still maintaining her career. "It's all in the mindset," we told her; "..and there WILL be days...and nights!". However: Evans' book helps a nullipara keep her perspective. We are sure Liz will look back on these humorous stories and "advice" when she and the baby have THEIR moments. The cocktail recipes may get some use.....WAY down the road!

This book is laugh until you cry funny! Perfect for a new parent. I relate to every single one of the chapters. A really fun book to buy for yourself if you are expecting or are a new parent, or baby shower gift.

This book was so fun, and it was very easy to read. I'm not a mom, but it gave me a whole new respect for what mom's do and it gave me a new appreciation for my "single life". I'll be sure to show my mom more appreciation, and I plan on giving copies as gifts for the upcoming holidays. I highly recommend it if your looking for some laughs and great drink ideas.

I purchased several books for all of my friends that had babies this year. This is a great book for new moms. It will give them a laugh about the "joys" of new parenthood. Everyone I have given this to has loved it.

This book was very entertaining and certain parts seriously made me LOL... But at other times it felt very redundant (for lack of a better word). Mommy thinks this... Mommy does that...
That's not enough of a down fall for me not to recommend it, but at times it was a little annoying. Overall though, the writing and antidotes were spot on!
