"Got Milf?" by Sarah Maizes

How to Rock a Minivan and Other Lessons

Somewhere between the delivery room and the carpool line you lost your mojo.

And though “Reclaim sex kitten status” is not at the top of your to-do list (hey, it’s on there, though, way below “Get baby food out of hair”), you’re well aware of how important it is to shave your legs regularly.

We’d like to suggest Got Milf? The Modern Mom’s Guide to Feeling Fabulous, Looking Great, and Rocking a Minivan, a new book by Sarah Maizes, blogger, comedienne, and mom to three. The best way to describe the breezy read is this: It’s the girlfriendish advice you’re so good at giving but never take to heart yourself (be honest — did you shower today?).

Full of hilarious, insightful, and quote-worthy tidbits (we’re still reeling over “Have sex before you go out to dinner”), the book enlightens and entertains without coming off as preachy. Maizes uses humor to remind you of all the reasons you’re a mom others would like to … ahem.

After all, as she points out, if moms weren’t doing the deed, we’d all be only children.

Available online at amazon.com, $14. Follow Maizes online at mommyliteonline.com.
