read of the week: the three martini playdate

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!!

Have you read Jenny McCarthy's "Belly Laughs"? It's a hilarious take on all that is being pregnant, and a nice break from the overload of "normal" pregnancy information you are receiving
