While portions of this book did cause me to leak a few tears while laughing, I have a "thing" about moms who a) work more than full-time b) manage to maintain a collegesque social life involving drinking and partying. I'm not a prude, not an evangelical Christian (not Christian, at all, for that matter), but I do think that if at all possible, mommies belong home with their kids. Aw, heck. I have all kinds of opinions about "how" moms should be - and yes, it does involve cooking (the author doesn't), being there for major portions of the day, and sacrificing some of your personal time. That being said, I could relate to several of her essays. Some things about being a mom cross boundaries.
