Moms' Night Out is a novelization of the hilarious family comedy that celebrates real family life---where everything can go wrong and still turn out all right.
All Allyson and her friends want is a peaceful, grown-up evening of dinner and conversation . . . a long-needed moms' night out. But in order to enjoy high heels, adult conversation and food not served in a bag, they need their husbands to watch the kids for a few hours-what could go wrong?
Chronicling one night out gone awry, three harried moms, their husbands, a sister-in-law with a misplaced baby, a tattoo parlor owner, a motorcycle gang, and a bewildered cabbie all learn to embrace the beautiful mess called parenting. This book spotlights the unfulfilled expectations and serial self-doubts many moms feel . . . then reassures us that the key is raising kids in a loving home. Mom's Night Outis an endearing, true-to-life comedy.

Oh my gosh, the laughing I did while reading this one, and after relaying the story to the hubby, he laughed too. He also agreed seeing the movie is a must.
I think many moms, and dads too, will appreciate the real nature behind the parenting in the story. Kids are chaotic, keep you moving and always on the go, keep you on your toes and yet still bring you more joy than anything else. This story really showcases that beautifully and so much more.
Tricia also stays true to her love of God, and shows us why faith can be so important. The messages in this story were received loud and clear.
Sondra is my favorite of the main moms. She tries to be perfect on the outside, all the while screaming inside. When she finally finds her voice it's truly admirable how she uses it.
I also really liked Bones. He's the big, scary biker, well, on the outside anyway, but inside he is the softest, nicest and friendliest guy around. Him and the cabbie were kind of heroic at times, and they won me over right away.
A new favorite for me. I'm surprised it can happen but clearly Tricia's stories just keep getting better for me. Again, I can't wait to see the movie, which inspired the story.

I'm still reading this one, it is a devotional after all. Still almost done and I can relate on so many levels. It shows the humorous side to motherhood, as well as the not so funny moments. This book is a good way of looking outside the box, or rather seeing yourself in mom mode from a different view. Maybe you don't know you're on the verge of burnout because some of your tasks have become so second nature. This is just an example, but this book pointed that out, among other things. I really feel like mom's, no matter the ages of their children, can benefit from reading this one. Maybe even some dad's too. Parenting is hard. Kids don't come with a manual, and generally parents take a backseat to whatever they need to do for their kids. This book helps see what may be the issue, and what you could do to stop from losing your mind. Even if it's only a giggle. Hey, I hear laughter is the best medicine. :-)
