Blacklisted from PTA

22 Mar

You read it right! Look what I’m reading next :D for all of you book fans out there waiting for my next book review since Mindy Kaling’s – I’m sure you’ll be excited to hear I am still reading funny things ;)

My sister gave me Blacklisted from PTA after she got a chance to read it and thought it would be the perfect book for me to read next. She knows that as a mom, I hardly get the chance to read so if she’s going to give me a books it’s one I am going to fall in love with or one that is easy to read. This one – is an easy to read one! It is written in short chapters so you can pick up and put down without feeling lost.

Here is Barnes & Nobles Overview:

Blacklisted by the PTA is an irreverent look at motherhood and the modern family. From the high chair to a vinyl restaurant booth on date night, Lela Davidson has captured life on the cul-de-sac with a husband, two kids, and the occasional pet. Whether failing at cloth diaper origami or smug in knowledge that her children have never consumed a PopTart, Lela assures parents they are not alone, and that it’s okay to laugh-at yourself, and at your kids. These are the stories of every parent–even if we don’t always tell them out loud. Each of these 62 essays can be read in under five minutes for a quick laugh-either with or at the author.

As a CPA on the mommy track, all Lela wanted to do was sit on the driveway and drink wine out of a box with the neighbors. Luckily, she started writing down her stories instead. Whether tackling PTA meetings, neighborhood politics, or inflation-by-Tooth Fairy, Lela exposes the humor in every awkward moment and maternal meltdown. From a trendy Seattle condo, to a tidy Arkansas subdivision, Lela shares the comic side of family life. She takes you to Mexican bars, the hockey rinks of St. Louis, ski slopes near Santa Fe, shopping in Dallas, and even introduces you to a few strippers–the novices on the playgrounds of New York City, and the pros in Vegas. Lela says what the rest of us are thinking. Her hilarious observations and subtle satire are always spot on. She’s not afraid to reveal her screw-ups, along with fleeting delusional moments of wherein she honestly believes she is the best mom ever.

Love Always,
