A wickedly funny look at the challenges of new parenthood.

With cocktail recipes. 

 
Being a new mom is “AHHHH! WHAT HAVE I DONE?” hard. Why are all these tiny clothes so expensive? Who wrote these mind-numbing board books? Will Mommy ever carry a purse again that’s not a diaper bag? And how is she even functioning off so little sleep?

Reasons Mommy Drinks is a fresh, insightful, and hilarious collection of the various struggles faced by new parents—from mommy groups and single-people envy to the end of maternity leave—with a well-deserved cocktail recipe to go with each one. This must-have resource will help sleep-deprived new moms survive the baby years with their sense of humor, if not their lives as they once knew them, intact.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Hilarious! Makes a great shower gift… though you may want to buy two. I bought this book as a baby shower gift and started reading it myself when I got home… I was laughing out loud and ended up reading the whole thing. It was so entertaining. There are so many ‘heavy’ parenting books out there… it was nice to be reminded that being a new parent has a funny side! My kids are a bit older but it brought back so many great memories. Buy one as a gift, and then buy another for yourself!
