Rosie Pope…Mom of 3, Entrepreneur, Bravo Star and now Published Author… was in town recently to promote her new book Mommy IQ at a book signing at Barnes & Noble in Calabasas. She took a few minutes to tell MomAngeles about the book and give us some advice for working Moms.
Rosie answered a lot of tough questions at the book signing with grace and humor. She gave us a little insight into what takes place behind the scenes of her quickly growing brand and even a little peek into Bravo! Sorry you missed it ladies….it was good scoop!
Afterwards the book, Mommy IQ, and I hit the local Ralphs for a late night grocery run. You know, because a Mom’s work is never done, and we were out of “wheat-ins” at my house (this is a tasty little wheat cracker that is often mispronounced but none-the-less delicious), so I had to go.
When I got home I cracked open the book. Because Rosie was so lovely and her picture on the cover very inviting and I figured if the book was even slightly as funny as she is that it would be a great read. And it was! Funny….AND a great read! Ladies…she addresses questions never seen before in a standard pregnancy guide…hair dye….she addresses whether or not to dye your hair. We all ask…how come no one really ever answers that question. According to Rosie its fine because only a tiny bit of the dye is ever absorbed by your scalp. Other not-seen-before topics include why your feet grow, the line you get on your belly from your belly button to “Queen Victoria” (leave it to the Brits to name our sexual parts after royalty), tips from men called “Murmurs from the Mancave,” and insight from fitness expert Andrea Orbeck and world renowned pediatrician Dr. Amos Grunebaum. All in all a terrific fun guide to pregnancy. Congrats Rosie on the new book!
