My good friend (The Turquoise Penguin) got me this short read over Christmas. The Three Martini Playdate by Christie Mellor is a great break from all of the of the other pregnancy information I am aquiring. Christie's point of view is to love your children but don't let them take over your lives. Literally, she calls them a "hobby" (all in good fun though). There is still room for a girls night every now and then and you don't have to listen to children's music 24/7. Some of her advice is a bit exaggerated. Such as, teach your children to serve cocktails at your next get together. (Sounds like a great idea but I'm sure child protective services would come knocking) Its hilarious yet even through all her exaggerations there are some good pointers. I think I read this at just the right time. Pregnancy seems to be consuming my life with all the information you need to know to have a little one. Her advice... take it as it comes and live life with a martini in hand.
Thanks again Abby!!
