If the idea of cocktails at a mid-day birthday party sounds like a good idea to you, The Three-Martini Playdate: A Practical Guide to Happy Parenting ($10) should be next on your reading list. Parents in need of some grown-up time will appreciate Christie Mellor's retro twang and comical look at raising your young. Finding excessive child-proofing ridiculous, she suggests you might as well "festoon all your drawers and cabinets with brightly colored flags that say, 'Hey, You! Kid! Fun and Danger in Here!'" Mellor reminds parents how to make child-rearing a snap, and even includes a recipe for teaching your tot how to mix a simple martini! Those looking for the classic "What to Expect: The Toddler Years," steer clear!
