Overview

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 colorful stories marked by her acerbic wit, Project Runway star Laura Bennett teaches us that you can still drive a minivan, (if you must) without scrapping your six-inch heels. Laura flips conventional wisdom on its head, while taking us on a wild ride though domestic chaos:

  • "Get you oxygen first moms." Laura explains why the airlines have it right - if mom isn't breathing, no one will be.
  • "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 30-year-olds, but I can still kick a sixty-year-old butt."
  • If things get too overwhelming, I just schedule a dentist appointment. There is nothing like a root canal to secure some guilt-free me time."

Riotous, charming and brutally honest, this fashion icon blows the lid off the traditional role of wife and mother.
