Book summary: From early adolescence, I had committed myself to joining the seemingly growing legions of women pumping their fists with a can-do spirit and a perfect balance of career and family. I fancied myself a textbook candidate for the League of Female Marvels until the narcolepsy and nausea set in, and I chickened out. Sacrificing a few rungs on the corporate ladder to stay home and be a Full-Time Mom (FTM) surely would prove a noble, not to mention more orderly, move. And think of all the discretionary time and energy! Cue laughter.Except within those rare close-knit and blackmail-toting friendships, the more maddening (yet equally funny) stories of motherhood are seldom shared-until now. From sex to sippy cups, the stories contained herein are told with candor, albeit through the eyes of a woman with a slight flair for the dramatic. Still, you may find them to serve as a mirror, a memoir, or a medicine to your own life-or that of any mom with whom you've ever lived. Occasionally sweet, always straight, The Myth of The Bonbons will strike a nerve with many women-and the men who find a well-timed placement of it on their nightstands.
