This irreverent, eye-popping memoir from an irrepressible mother of six gives the inside scoop on raising a large hoard of boys in the jungle of New York City - without sacrificing your sanity, or your stilettos. In colorful stories marked by her acerbic wit, Project Runway star Laura Bennett teaches us that you can still drive a minivan (if you must) without scrapping your six-inch heels.

Laura flips conventional wisdom on its head, while taking us on a wild ride through domestic chaos:

  • Get your oxygen first, moms. Laura explains why the airlines have it right - if mom isn't breathing, no one will be.
  • Of course I lie about my age. I tell people that I am older than I actually am. 'Wow, 50? You look great!' I may not be able to compete with thirty year-olds, but I can kick 60-year-old butt.
  • If things get too overwhelming, I just schedule myself a dentist appointment. There is nothing like a root canal to secure some guilt-free me time.Riotous, charming, and brutally honest, this fashion icon blows the lid off the traditional role of wife and mother.

    " i have little to say about this book. in my mind, it falls into the same category as other humorous essays on life & parenthood as so many other books i have read, with the twist being that the author was the runner-up on "project runway" season three. & that twist is why i picked it up. the first essay, about laura's experience taking her entire family (one girl & five boys, ranging in age from twenty to two) on an airplane, gave me pause. laura made some allegory up regarding her parenting strategies & the flight attendant's recommendation of first putting your oxygen mask on yourself & then helping the children. it seemed a little...pat. or trite, even. i was a bit anxious that i was reading a book by someone who is quite capable of sewing a spangled empire-waist cocktail dress & had somehow parlayed this into a book deal. which...i was. but it was still just a notch better than i anticipated. still not mind-blowing though. i breezed through it (just shy of 200 pages--seems like she must have had more to say but just chose not to draw it out) in no time. my favorite parts were definitely the handful of chapters about the experience of being on "project runway," just because it's interesting to hear about how things really happen behind the scenes. but the parenting stuff wasn't at all objectionable. i guess this is what they call a "great beach read," but it certainly won't be taxing anyone's intellect.

    " Unbelievably annoying, self-justifying snide book written by a former contestant of Project Runway. She is honest about all of her foibles, but she is STILL so annoying! 6 kids, 3 nannies and 1 housekeeper!!! "

    " Laura from Project Runway has written a kind of modern, Please Don't Eat the Daisies, about raising 6 kids (mainly just the 5 boys) in Manhattan. Ok, this is not great lit. If you like your laugh-out-loud Chick Lit to be original, authentic or real -- go someplace else. I laughed out loud more than once and killed an evening reading when I should have been doing massive amounts of real work. Don't regret a minute of it. "

    " I like Bennett's parenting style philosophically, but since it appears to depend on a million dollars and an actual desire to be dressed up all the time, I'm not going to get too invested. Obviously, the best part was the Project Runway dish (sadly, only one chapter). "
