A Delight

I'm half-way through the book and have found it a delight. I'm not a mom, 40ish or otherwise, but can appreciate the clever eye of the author and infuse that view point into how I see my own life. The writing is sharp, sardonic, and sweet at the same time. In musing over an alpha mom's article on child raising, Ms. Konig writes: "It takes a village," the mom in the article actually said. And apparently she hired a village to watch her kid so she could go work one hundred hours a week...The more she learned about successful motherhood, the more people she hired to achieve it for her..." Made me laugh. I'm looking forward to reading her other book as well.

Mother of 8 thinks this was Great!

Hilarious! If you are looking for a good read centered around "the truth" behind parenting..........this is it! Susan Konig tells it like it is, and this forty-something mother of 8 found it the perfect way to end the summer!!

Funny lady, funny book

This is the second book by Susan Konig. The first one was "Why Animals Sleep so Close to the Road (And Other Lies I Tell My Children"), a book I enjoyed so much I gave away at least twenty copies to friends and clients. The new book is equally good - a light, breezy, funny, read about life if you're a suburban lady journalist, 40 something, with a comedian-entertainer husband, three children, and #4 on the way. Like most humor books, this is a rapid read, with 205 pages divided into 44 chapters (and epilogue). Some of the chapters are an absolute scream, like (my personal favorite) the 36 hour trip to the "pampering spa" with just the hubbie..., or the leaking ceiling in the children's bedroom.... All great fun. I'll be getting another box of these to give away!
