I am in the process of reading a book, “I Don’t Know How She Does It” by Allison Pearson. It is a rather satirical take on motherhood, at times I am not sure whether I should laugh or cry. I love the blatant honesty that is portrayed; the situations that the main character in the book, Kate Reddy, finds herself in are so real. Even though unlike me, she is a working mom with two children, I can still relate to her expectations of life as a wife and mother. The story ultimately poses the question “Can you have it all: marriage, children and a career?”
The book has now been made into a movie, soon to be released, staring none other than Sarah Jessica Parker. I love her character in Sex in the City, and would probably see the movie just to see another one of her performances. The trailer is very funny and hopefully the movie will live up to expectations. So I will wait expectantly for the release thereof later this year. Have a look at the trailer below to see what to expect from the movie and if you have not read the book yet it is well worth it.
