The first time I watched Moms’ Night Out, I was sitting on my bed with a special preview screening playing on my iPad. The kids were in the bed, The Hubby was on call, and it was just me and a movie I found to be telling MY story. I laughed so loud I woke our oldest son up and I cried tons of tears as the story unfolded and reminded me of the important things in life.
The weird thing is I also took notes. Yep. I watched the movie with a pen and paper because I kept hearing quotes I loved and I didn’t want to forget them! This was all before I know Moms’ Night Out was being made in to a book, too! And not just any book – a novelization of the movie written by my author friend, Tricia Goyer!
I have the book in hands now and I’m thankful because now I can underline those quotes and keep them close by at all times! There are many more reasons to love having Moms’ Night Out in book form, but if you don’t know the story yet, let’s start there…
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 am like the Bruce Banner of stay-at-home moms. He doesn’t want to turn into the Hulk. It just happens. One minute I’m a normal person. The next minute the large, green monster grows inside me, bursting out in every direction. I grow and transform into something unrecognizable. scary even.”
“I’m trying to make myself get up – to clean – but nothing’s happening. I’m stress paralyzed.”
“I doubt the Good Lord made a mistake giving your kiddos the mama He did. So just be…you. He’ll take care of the rest.”
