Overview


DO JUICE BOXES COME IN MOJITO?
Motherhood is “memorable,” but all too often for its calamities. Fortunately, Mommy Mixology shares stories, sympathies, and some strong drinks to keep you laughing through it all.
Sitcom housewives like June Cleaver and Carol Brady made mothering look like constant joy, but most moms know the reality is far from simple. Getting through the motherhood years will take a good sense of humor and a few cocktails:
• When your little darling starts to pick up on—and repeat!—every word you say, clean up your language with a Son of a Beach.

• When that budding Georgia O’Keeffe uses her skills to redecorate the home in permanent ink, clean up while sipping a Markerita.

• When your toddler digs in his heels and comes back with “NO!” 367 times, shake it off with a refreshing NO!Jito.

• When your 3-year-old pushes down his Pull-Ups and learns the difference between boys and girls, sit back and laugh with a Penis Colada.

• When you pack the car with 99 diapers and 3 pounds of Goldfish, put your feet up at the end of the trip and enjoy a well-earned Long Drivin’ Iced Tea.

    Laugh Away Mommy Martyrdom With Mommy Mixology

    What happens when you blend the wit of Erma Bombeck and the Tiki-like cocktail recipes of master mixologist, Trader Vic? You get Janet Frongillo’s debut book, Mommy Mixology – A Cocktail for Every Calamity. Mommy Mixology is a fun mix of laugh-out-loud parenting anecdotes from conception through kindergarten – each with an accompanying cocktail recipe. Move over Dr. Spock because Ms. Frongillo certainly knows a thing or two about being in the throes of mothering. Her mix of breezy snark, pop culture references and unabashed honesty makes you feel like you’re sitting at her kitchen table laughing with an old friend about the trials and tribulations of motherhood. Parents-to-be and new parents will appreciate her candor on everything from potty-training to dealing with the PTA. Parents of older children will fondly look back on those early years and think, “it wasn’t quite so bad, maybe we should have had another.” I hope this is the first of many books to come from Janet Frongillo.

    I ordered this book because I am a fan of the authors blog and it lived
    up to my expectations. Comedy and cocktails are a win win for me. I
    took it to my sisters for a girls night in and we laughed out loud while
    trying out some of the cocktails. I love the honesty with which the
    author jokes about parenting. Parenting is a tough gig and sometimes we
    get so caught up in trying to look perfect we can drive ourselves
    insane. Janet puts herself out there in such a hilarious way it makes
    you realize you're not alone in the craziness of parenting and yes it's
    hard, but it's damn fun and funny too. I love this book. I've order 2
    more copies to give as gifts. I like the idea of giving it as a gift
    along with some of the ingredients to make the cocktails.

    You'll Laugh So Hard You'll Spill Your Drink!

    This original book is hysterical! I usually read in bed while my husband is sleeping. I was laughing so hard while reading Mommy Mixology that he kicked me out of the room! These stories are so true for those of us who are mommies - new and not so new! For me they brought back memories. . .
    And don't forget the yummy recipes! TGI Mommy Mixology!
