Overview

If the prospect of motherhood leaves you woozy with images of soccer mom hairdos and senseless acts of baking, don't panic. There is a way to keep your Inner Babe while you're busy bringing up baby. I'm Too Sexy for My Volvo is an essential guide for new and experienced mothers alike, packed with practical, profound, and irreverent truths about how to stay fabulous even amidst the burps, stretch marks, and drool:
  • Pretty up down there. Have a pedicure, get a bikini wax, and shave your legs a few days before you're due. There's no need to feel like Godzilla when a lot of hunky residents are peering at your lower half during labor.
  • Bangles, bangles everywhere. When the baby finally arrives, you're going to end up with about 7,000 photos of your forearms. Buy some cool bracelets and you'll look like a glam mom.
  • Blow town. When the going gets tough (or just plain tedious), hit the road. Take your newborn abroad while she's still lightweight, mobile, and lacks the ability to say, "Are we there yet?" and "When can we go home?"
  • Let it shine. The four things you need to keep in your closet to remind you that you're still fabulous. (No, the pool boy does not count.)

Sure, becoming a mom changes your life completely. But Betty Londergan's 101 wise and witty rules for Mamas and Mama's-to-be give you the confidence and kick-ass attitude to stay sexy, stylish, and cool while you're losing your heart to your little one.

Author Biography:
Betty Londergan is a creative director in advertising, and has worked on some of the largest brands in America, including Tylenol, Vanguard, US West, and AT&T. Formerly a single mom, Betty is now the happily married mother of Lulu and stepmother of Jaime, Lindsay, and Tyler.

    Seriously Laughing Out Loud

    Maybe I'm jumping the gun a bit here, because I'm only at page 53, but I can't even recall how many times this book has made me laugh out loud already. I LOVE it, and it's the perfect Mother's Day gift for any soon-to-be-Mother, new Mother, or experienced Mother! I wish this book was around when I was newly pregnant!
