A collection of true stories about motherhood, told from the viewpoint of four women who meet every Friday to discuss their lives over cocktails.
MOMMIES WHO DRINK is a collection of true stories that track Paesel's experience of motherhood - the common bond that either unites women in friendship or polarizes them to different camps. Wickedly funny and painfully honest, these stories explore what it's like to be a modern mother. Is it possible to be a mother and a woman at the same time? Can a mother successfully reclaim her carefree past and, if she can, should she? With integrity and candour, Paesel speaks to all women who are braving the frightening new world of motherhood. And of course that most important of questions: 'What time of the day is too early to start drinking?'
