In the eagerly anticipated follow-up to Laurie Gelman’s "irreverent and hilarious" (The New York Post) hit Class Mom, brash, lovable Jen Dixon is back with a new class and her work cut out for her
If you’ve ever been a room parent or school volunteer, Jen Dixon is your hero. She says what every class mom is really thinking, whether in her notoriously frank emails or standup-worthy interactions with the micromanaging PTA President and the gamut of difficult parents. Luckily, she has the charm and wit to get away with it—most of the time. Jen is sassier than ever but dealing with a whole new set of challenges, in the world of parental politics and at home.She’s been roped into room-parenting yet again, for her son Max’s third grade class, but as her husband buries himself in work, her older daughters navigate adulthood, and Jen’s own aging parents start to need some parenting themselves, Jen gets pulled in more directions than any one mom, or superhero, can handle.Refreshingly down-to-earth and brimming with warmth, Dixon’s next chapter will keep you turning the pages to find out what’s really going on under the veneer of polite parent interactions, and have you laughing along with her the whole way.
With sass and snark, we are treated to the communications and experiences of a third grade classroom mother and her ongoing obligations. Third grade is tough, not only for the kids and teachers. The kids are "not as cute" any more and participating in their classroom activities and field trips, etc are not as fresh for the parents. Jen Dixon tries to liven things up.
There is a new mother in town, who must get used to Jen's ways of communicating, Jen's husband is trying to scale up his sports business, and Jen discovers the life-changing effects of spinning!
Laugh your way through the trials of third grade, and creating a fifth grade safety patrol system when the school crossing guard retires. Jen has the added discomfort of watching her older daughters act in ways similar to her own wild youth, and now she knows some of what she put her own mother through.
