YOU'RE EITHER A MILF OR YOU'RE A MILF-DUD. TAKE YOUR PICK."My husband has been telling me I'm a MILF for years-but he sort of had to if he ever wanted to get any action. Thanks to Sarah Maizes, now I believe him! After reading Got MILF? I am thinner, tanner and totally rocking my glorified station wagon."
For thousands of years, women have been expected to hang up their "hotness" once they had kids. They disappeared behind their families and the dashboards of minivans...Until now! Whether sporting a cardigan and jeans, sweats or a business suit, today's Mom is a shining example of confidence, poise, and age- defying beauty. Even as she juggles carpool, PTA, and the demands of the office, or shrieks, "GET IN THE TUB, NOOOWWW!", she's pretty darn hot.
A MILF ISN'T BORN, SHE'S MADE
A Milf is confident in her choices, because doubt is for 20-year-olds.
A Milf laughs. A lot.
A Milf kisses her man in public and hugs her kids until they cry out in sheer embarrassment.
A Milf doesn't let petty issues get her down and always looks up (take that gravity!).
GOT MILF? CELEBRATES WHERE THE MODERN WOMAN HAS TAKEN MOTHERHOOD. IT'S TIME TO STAND UP, EMBRACE YOUR INNER MILF AND BE COUNTED!
-Jenna McCarthy, author of If It Was Easy They'd Call the Whole Damn Thing a Honeymoon
"Somewhere between the delivery room and the carpool line you lost your mojo. And though 'reclaim sex kitten status' is not at the top of your to-do list (hey, it's on there, though, way below 'Get baby food out of hair'), you're well aware of how important it is to shave your legs regularly. We'd like to suggest Got Milf? The Modern Mom's Guide to Feeling Fabulous, Looking Great, and Rocking a Minivan, a new book by Sarah Maizes, blogger, comedienne, and mom to three. The best way to describe the breezy read is this: It's the girlfriendish advice you're so good at giving but never take to heart yourself (be honest - did you shower today?). Full of hilarious, insightful, and quote- worthy tidbits (we're still reeling over 'Have sex before you go out to dinner'), the book enlightens and entertains without coming off as preachy. Maizes uses humor to remind you of all the reasons you're a mom others would like to ... ahem. After all, as she points out, if moms weren't doing the deed, we'd all be only children."
-Daily Candy Kids
"Fresh, witty take on parenting with style."
-San Diego Family Magazine
"Got MILF is an empowering book for moms, told from Maizes' point of view... It was refreshing to see Maizes take a derogatory term, turn it on its head, and take it in a positive direction."
"A funny look at modern-day motherhood with tons of tips and "aha" moments. But if you're not a mama, there's a lesson or two in there for you, too. In short, laugh more, stress less, and ... get your nails done? Well, yeah!"
-Vitamin G blog, Glamour.com
"Sarah Maizes takes the Madonna/whore dichotomy and runs over it (and back over it) with her minivan. No matter what term for 'hot mom' you have adopted as your own, this book will make you laugh and inspire you to enjoy where you are right now in your life."
-Stephanie Dolgoff, author of My Formerly Hot Life: Dispatches from Just the Other Side of Young
"Every mom has an inner MILF. This breakthrough book shows you how to get it out without major surgery."
-Lenore Skenazy, author of the book and blog Free-Range Kids
"Sarah Maizes's pioneering study seems destined to revolutionize the field of MILFology."
-David Javerbaum, former head writer of The Daily Show with Jon Stewart, coauthor of America (The Book) and author of What to Expect When You're Expected
