Moms' Night Out is a novelization of the hilarious family comedy that celebrates real family life---where everything can go wrong and still turn out all right.
All Allyson and her friends want is a peaceful, grown-up evening of dinner and conversation . . . a long-needed moms' night out. But in order to enjoy high heels, adult conversation and food not served in a bag, they need their husbands to watch the kids for a few hours-what could go wrong?Chronicling one night out gone awry, three harried moms, their husbands, a sister-in-law with a misplaced baby, a tattoo parlor owner, a motorcycle gang, and a bewildered cabbie all learn to embrace the beautiful mess called parenting. This book spotlights the unfulfilled expectations and serial self-doubts many moms feel . . . then reassures us that the key is raising kids in a loving home. Mom's Night Out is an endearing, true-to-life comedy.
I loved this book. Honestly it took me less than a day to read. I found myself chuckling often as I read the sometimes over the top antics that prevailed through the pages. I can't really put myself completely in the place of the main character. Yes I am at home with my kids all day (I work from home and home-school). However, I have the most amazing husband ever. I never have to worry if I go out and leave the kids at home. To be honest his capabilities blow me out of the water. When I go out he doesn't 'babysit' he's just being a Dad and he's awesome at it!
