Wine in my Sippy Cup by Deborah Dove
From the back cover:
A sophisticated, put together career woman prior to having kids, now Liz Cartwright is lucky to go to the bathroom by herself, much less get out of the house wearing matching shoes and a clean shirt. While she is preoccupied with the sometimes mind-numbing responsibilities of motherhood, her husband is becoming increasingly distant and preoccupied with work, giving Liz the distinct impression that she is losing her husband along with her sense of identity.
As a mom, I find it difficult to find time to sit down with a good book. I always feel like there’s something I should be doing besides sitting around reading. By the time I fall into bed at night, well, I’m ready to pass out.
This book had me laughing out loud in bed, where hubby would ask “what’s so funny?” and I’d have to shake my head and say “nevermind, you wouldn’t get it.” Liz and her circle of besties are a likeable (and relateable) bunch. I don’t think there are many moms who haven’t had a moment of “how did I get here?!” — and Liz is no different. But, it turns out, sometimes no matter where we ended up, it’s exactly where we belong.
