The "time-outs" in this book are for moms who love their kids but also long for a few minutes when they've got nowhere to be, no one to listen to, and no diapers to change. The authors have compiled 100 imaginative ways they and their friends--including such celebrities as Kelly Ripa and Jill Hennessy--spend their time when they have 10 luscious minutes to themselves. The suggestions for using your moments alone to the max run the gamut from sweet to satiric--treat yourself to a single, beautiful flower for your bedside table or play kickball with your son and punt the ball really, really far. Try surreptitiously rearranging your Netflix queue so your movies arrive before your husband's and kids' do. Browse for bling at Harry Winston. Or leave the kids to shop with your husband and slip into Brookstone for a rest in one of their giant massage chairs.
Every good mom deserves a break. This book is a start--to chuckle over with your friends or really use when you need a precious respite.
Julie Klappas is the mother of two and has spent her career working in television, producing programming and promotions for clients including Lifetime, VH1, and Nickelodeon.
