Join our next Twitter Party to talk about taking the cool back with Tracy Beckerman, author of the new book LOST IN SUBURBIA, A Momoir
"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.
