This irreverent, eye-popping memoir from an irrepressible mother of six gives the inside scoop on raising a large hoard of boys in the jungle of New York City-without sacrificing your sanity, or your stilettos. In her nonstop hilarious anecdotes, Laura Bennett teaches us that you can still drive a minivan (if you must) without scrapping your six-inch heels, and that Thanksgiving dinner for eight is a snap-as long as you have FreshDirect on speed dial.
Laura provides take-no-prisoners advice on parenting, as well as tips for all women who aren't afraid to be fabulous:
-I am not the outdoor type, unless a waiter is following me with a tray of champagne
-I will proudly walk into my fifties with my ass held high, thanks to my power panties
-I don't really get couples that choose to stop at one or two kids
That's like going to Vegas and only playing one hand of black jack, or throwing the dice twice
-Much like my favorite child, I have a favorite pair of shoes
-I always take care of myself first, and I parent my children my way, not the way others expect me to
-Being on Project Runway was a lot like childbirth; when you are in the middle of it it's painful, but when it's all over, you're glad you did it
-I say dress up every day; you never know when you'll meet your next husband.
-Of course I lie about my age. I tell people that I am older than I actually am. "Wow, 50? You look great!" I may not be able to compete with thirty-year-olds, but I can kick sixty-year-old butt.
