I wish more people would read this book b/c it is both funny and genuine. This is one of the few times that a celebrity opens herself up enough to seem like an actual human being instead of someone trying to sell you some spin.
Like Tina Fey's memoir but somehow a little more personal.
I thoroughly enjoyed some of her accounts of new mommy drudgery.
When I need an escape and cannot openly read a book, I whip out my headphones and press play on my Audible app.
I've read Fey and Poehler's books and now the trifecta is complete with Dratch's insightful book. I finished this book in 1 day and was never bored from the stories, anecdotes, and life lessons Dratch tells.
I wanted to keep listening. A tearful passage or two. A couple more that made me laugh out loud and more still that brought a smile.As someone who had her first (and only) child at 41, there was definitely some things I could relate to. By the time the book is over you feel like she's your friend -- or you'd like her to be.
I happened to stumble upon this book by accident because I had read Tina Fey's Bossy Pants. I loved this book. Well written, funny, and honest. I was a fan of Rachel's when she was on SNL, and I'm a fan of hers all over again! Also, I actually found her voice easy to listen to.
She's sweet and funny. I was personally put off by how little she is educated about birth, because I think of all the women who read or listen to this who may then also assume that what doctors tell them about "needing" a c-section is true, about the "need" for ultrasounds (that actually are completely inaccurate at determining the amount of amniotic fluid), etc. But I appreciate her discussion of the beauty standard and everything else. Very heartwarming and pleasant book.
