A smart laugh out loud debut novel about a deeply flawed but endearing stay at home mom a book for anyone who took Bridget Jones to heart a decade ago and now has kids Lucy Sweeney has three sons a husband on a short fuse and a tendency toward domestic disaster It has been years since the dirty laundry pile was less than three feet high months since she remembered to have sex and weeks since her toddler started using the trash can as a toilet L I couldn't get through this book Because I am a stay at home mom I thought I would identify with this book but no The entire plot line about the mom wanting dreaming and justifying having an affair left me cold I understand that staying with your kids might not be the most exciting thing to be doing but having an affair with someone is not how I choose to add excitement to my life and I definitely don't want to spend my the few minute I have to myself reading about someone who does But then maybe I'm just lucky because I love my husband
