"When you're a mom, you get a 'Get Out of Fat Jail
Free' card for as long as you have young kids. Whenever you feel fat, you can
tell someone you still haven't lost 'the baby weight,' and they will nod in
understanding. It's like the Sisterhood of the Traveling Fat Pants. We all wear
Fat Pants, otherwise known as Mom Jeans, after the baby is born because they
are all we can get over our Post-Baby Bellies.” – Tracy Beckerman,Lost
in Suburbia: A Momoir
In her "momoir" titled Lost in Suburbia A Momior, How I got
Pregnant, Lost Myself and Got My Cool Back in the New Jersey Suburbs, Tracy
Beckerman takes her readers on a humorous ride as she recounts settling into
her new role as a stay-at-home mom in the suburbs, grappling with self-identity
issues, and rediscovering her passions in life. Can you relate? Did you leave
work to stay home with the kids? Then, did you feel like you lost a part of who
you are or have an identity crisis? And, how did you deal with it? How did
you get your groove back? Or, are you still trying?
With heartfelt candidness and an irreverent sense of
humor, Lost in Suburbia: A Momoir, tells
the tales of one woman striving to reinvent her life after motherhood. From
losing all interest in her once stylish wardrobe, making reluctant friends with
the minivan-obsessed, scrunchie-wearing, suburban moms, and partying just a bit
too hard her first weekend away from the kids, Tracy divulges her relatable,
funny and heartwarming missteps in parenting and daily life.
We're also giving away a 100% cotton terry Aegean Apparel Lucky Duck Appliquéd Bathrobe. If you read the book, you'll understand why! (Tracy was stopped by a cop once driving her car taking the kids to pre-school, in full drag! She was wearing her bathrobe that resembled this very one - only her's was blue, this is pink.)
The grand prize is a $150 SpaFinder Wellness Gift Card that can be used at over 20,000 spas, yoga, Pilates or fitness studios and more around the world.
