Yoga Pant Nation
by Laurie Gelman




Overview -

From the author of Class Mom and You've Been Volunteered comes a new book on one mom's challenges through parenting and life, keeping her on her toes and perpetually in yoga pants.

Jen Dixon of Overland Park, Kansas--fearless mother of a fifth-grade boy and two thirty-something daughters--is used to juggling a lot, from her mission to become a spin instructor, to stepping in as the most acerbic class mom ever (again), to taking care of her two-year-old granddaughter. But when the PTA president throws her a mandate to raise $10,000 for the fifth-grade class, even unflappable Jen is going to need more than her regular spin class to get her through this final year at William Taft Elementary School.

In the midst of new complications--organizing the class overnight to Topeka, an unexpected spin class fan in the form of her husband's crazy ex-wife, and trying to navigate her parents' sudden descent into apparent delusions--Jen hardly has the patience to listen to yet another half-baked idea (come on, ladies, another wrapping paper sale?) from WeFUKCT (We Fundraise Until Kingdom Come Team), her fundraising committee. But if anyone can get elementary parents to pull off the impossible, it's Jen Dixon.

With her always irreverent and laugh-out-loud humor--boldly holding forth on those things you're thinking, but would never dare say out loud--Laurie Gelman shines a light on the indignities and hilarities of modern parenting.
