I often hear moms complain that they have no time for themselves. Well, if somebody handed Mommy a book titled If You Give A Mom A Martini… she definitely should make time for herself. This book is über-delightful! It was off to the races for me the minute I flipped the first page. It is definitely intended to make life easier for all the stressed-out moms who juggle work, play, marriage, kids, household chores, PTA meetings, baseball practices, and the list goes on and on. If You Give A Mom A M ...more

My favorite suggestion from this book was:
When shopping at the mall with your hubby & kids, tell them you need to go to the bathroom. Then run to the store with the massage chairs, sit & relax for a bit.

Nice book with creative suggestions.

The only thing I didn't like is that while the book tells moms what to do with 10 minutes, the book does not tell you how to get the 10 minutes of free time in the first place.
As a result, I believe that stay-at-home moms would get more use out of this

Some good ideas, but many were outdated. Websites for dressing up dolls, judging length of new marriage, ordering cookie deliveries. Recommended reading business news online, making cocktails and healthy meals for yourself, standing on your head, taking a bubble bath, watching small increments of soap operas, movies, and yeah TV. Getting a mop to attach to your crawling child, throwing a ball really far too have some time to yourself, sneaking away to a massage chair in the mall, locking yoursel ...more

A cute little book of 100 ten-minute escapes for Mom. My favorite was probably to play kickball with your child and kick the ball really, really far, ensuring a few minutes to sip your iced tea all alone. Some were silly like this one, and others were more health and fitness oriented, some were doable and others required things I don't have (cash and more cash!), but overall a book I'd give in a gift bag at a baby shower!

Now, i'm not a mom, but I grabbed this cause I figured anyone could use 10 minutes to themselves. Despite not being a mom, I liked a lot of the ideas in this book, it's really important to take care of yourself regardless of who you are and I liked that this reinforced that. My mom definitely could learn something from this!

This might be one of the silliest, most impractical books I've ever read. Take a subway ride? Really? Because you could do that in all of ten minutes and get back to your little urchins without being missed.
At least I now have a recipe for a lemondrop martini, on the off chance I couldn't manage to google it.

Fun to read. Brings back many happy memories of when I was too busy with my children to even paint my own nails, just like they recommend in this book! Found a super recipe for pasta that the kids won't like (so you can eat it all!)
