Litfuse Review: Moms' Night Out by:Tricia Goyer
About the Book:
Moms' Night Out is a novelization of the hilarious family comedy that celebrates real family life—where everything can go wrong and still turn out all right.
All Allyson and her friends want is a peaceful, grown-up evening of dinner and conversation . . . a long-needed moms’ night out. But in order to enjoy high heels, adult conversation and food not served in a bag, they need their husbands to watch the kids for a few hours—what could go wrong?
Chronicling one night out gone awry, three harried moms, their husbands, a sister-in-law with a misplaced baby, a tattoo parlor owner, a motorcycle gang, and a bewildered cabbie all learn to embrace the beautiful mess called parenting. This book spotlights the unfulfilled expectations and serial self-doubts many moms feel . . . then reassures us that the key is raising kids in a loving home. Mom’s Night Out is an endearing, true-to-life comedy.

I have been married for quite awhile, it will be 20 years this October, and even I know that if I leave my children with my husband I will literally get a phone call every 15 minutes. Not because there is a problem, just because my poor husband has had enough and is ready to hand over the reigns. This book is very funny and mothers from every walk of life can relate to the characters in the book. I'm sure after reading it, that we would all agree that there is at least one page that is directly out of our busy, everyday lives.
We as mother's know the tremendous things we have to go through just to get a break from it all, and this book shows what a group of moms had to go through just to go out for some relaxing time away. It wasn't such an easy feat to pull off. And we get to share in the joys, mishaps, and misunderstood happenings that we as mothers often engage in whether it is knowingly or totally by accident.
I resonate with Allyson very much, I understand the whole Bruce Banner/Hulk mood that she is able to morph into. I have done it, not often but some. It's nice to finally have a book that resonates more with a majority of us moms. It also feels great knowing that we are not alone.
