Brett Paesel's story of hip motherhood will have you bent over laughing while reaching for your martini glass. From her encounters with a celebrity pre-natal yoga guru to her obsession (since giving birth) with her own and everyone else's ass, she explores motherhood as lived by the "formerly fabulous."

Wickedly funny and irreverent, yet deeply honest and touching, Mommies Who Drink confronts a brave new world of motherhood, and dares to ask the question "What time of day is too early to start drinking?"

Listener Opinions

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Chloe | 2/19/2014

    " I enjoyed the book and it inspired me to remember the importance of friends but it was just an okay book. She definitely has potential. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Julie | 2/14/2014

    " a light read. entertaining. not a mom who I would be friends with, but i would drink with her. fuuny book. laughed out loud a few times. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Michelle | 2/11/2014

    " I'm a 28 year-old who thinks about shriveled eggs, my biological clock, my innate need to mother and the fact that I am SO nowhere near marriage it's pathetic. I don't know how to cook, I would rather stick a number two pencil in my eye than clean someone else's mess, and frankly, I like to be waited on. This probably makes no sense. What I'm trying to say is I am not a mother...but I loved this book. I found it funny, brutally honest, and thought provoking on all aspects of motherhood. And I'm not even a Mommy. Yet. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Becky Austin | 2/4/2014

    " should have been cooler, but i think the author tried to make it into a "deep" book. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Michelle | 2/2/2014

    " A quick and easy read with some laugh out loud moments. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Lisa | 2/1/2014

    " Loved this book,author is hysterical but tells a truth about mothering that few mothers admit to... "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Melissa | 1/26/2014

    " Hilarious memoir/series of essays about motherhood and the changes it brings. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Katie | 1/20/2014

    " This book was great!!! Finally the truth comes out about how us mothers really feel. This book got me back into reading....well, that and no cable. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Samantha | 1/18/2014

    " this was extremely easy to read, humourous but not laugh out loud. Lots of moments I could relate to. Easy to enjoy, but not earth shattering. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Scarlett B | 1/13/2014

    " Inappropriate, sad at times, but always hilarious. Reading this book in public will lead to embarrassing bouts of laughter! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Michelle | 1/12/2014

    " This book is probably the most hilarious take on motherhood in sunny southern California that I've ever read! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Kristen | 1/7/2014

    " Recommended by my firend Wendy, I was in tears (from laughter) by page 2. It is a great book start to finish. The author's life and mine are very diferent but I could imagine that to which I could not relate. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Lori | 1/3/2014

    " Ok...I'll admit I didn't finish this one. It was just too much. I guess maybe because I wasn't the strung out druggie partier that she was I found it hard to relate. I was thinking it would be slightly more relatable (as I'm a mommie who craves a drink now and again!) but not so much. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Mary Harwell | 12/26/2013

    " Who could resist the title. Pretty much exactly what you'd expect. Fluff factor is quite high. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Amber | 12/24/2013

    " Super funny, super sweet and very easy to read. I loved it. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Elizabeth Mottley | 11/6/2013

    " Very enjoyable read. Funny, but has substance too. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Brandi | 6/22/2013

    " Author is a bit self indulgent, and I found myself more annoyed with her angst than feeling empathy for her. NOT the laugh out loud book it was advertized to be, but entertaining if you are on an 8 hour flight to Germany. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Labmom | 7/8/2012

    " Cute, kind of relatable, an easy read. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Angie | 1/27/2012

    " Pretty cute, but not quite as funny as laurie notaro. Still love her best! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Jen | 1/7/2012

    " Funny book with lots of stories other Mom's can relate to! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Kim | 11/14/2011

    " This was funny, but I related to it rather less than one might anticipate. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Tasha | 8/18/2009

    " A funny read if you're a Mommy (who drinks) "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 christina | 5/11/2009

    " I was so disappointed to read this book. With such a catchy title and some great ideas, it just didn't play out well. Very disjointed and poorly written. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Kathi Copeland | 5/4/2009

    " I could relate to this book and It made me laugh. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Jillian | 10/17/2008

    " This was so funny, and I loved the author's voice and observations. I'm not a mother (or an aspiring mother) but I thoroughly enjoyed this. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Irus | 7/22/2008

    " you don't have to have a baby or even a uterus to enjoy this one, but it probably helps - at least a little. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Amanda | 5/17/2008

    " A good read, but not quite what I had expected. There were some laugh out loud moments as I read some great insights into parenting and other people's parenting styles. Overall, entertaining. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Bess | 1/5/2008

    " I read this at a time in my life where the storyline of a new mom with preschool age children was fitting. Many opportunities to laugh out loud. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Beth | 6/26/2007

    " Not as good as I had hoped, but still amusing. It gets a little tiresome reading about the author complain about her life. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Alison | 2/12/2007

    " This is so very funny! The author obviously led a more wild life than mine pre-baby, but the general ideas remain true and very funny. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Julie | 11/16/2006

    " Funny, heart-wrenching and brutally honest, Mommies Who Drink is an unflinching look at motherhood Brett Paesel style. It was scary how much of this I could relate to (although some of it not at all). I wish I could join her Friday Happy Hour. "
