Not Ready for Mom Jeans

St. Martin's Press, May 25, 2010 - Fiction - 304 pages
1 Review

A laugh-out-loud novel about motherhood, life, and the quest for eight hours of sleep.

Event planner and famous blogger Clare Finnegan expected to go back to work after her daughter was born. After all, she worked hard for her success...and it's not like now that she has a child she has to buy a minivan, wear Mom Jeans, and give up her career! Right?

Despite more than a few pounds of baby weight still left to lose, Clare dons her Miss Piggy Pants and returns to work. She plans a swanky Sweet Sixteen party, pulls off a million-dollar golf outing, has to come to terms with her mother's breast cancer, and is left so exhausted that she can't remember her ATM card's pin number. Then, after another meeting runs late, and she misses another one of her daughter's milestones, Clare allows herself to examine an alternate choice: staying home.

"Lipinski's snappy dialogue and acerbic wit are so engaging, you don't need a minivan to enjoy this ride." –Jen Lancaster, New York Times bestselling author
