Teaser Tuesday

Teaser Tuesdays is a weekly meme hosted by Miz B of Should Be Reading and asks you to :
1. Grab your current read
2. Open to a random page
3 . Share 2 "teaser" sentences also citing the title of the book and the author and in that way people can have great recommendations if they like the "teaser".
4. Please avoid spoilers!

"How come all the other moms on the block are out on mother's day and you're home? Why don't you go out too?" You might think this is generous and kind of him, but really, he's trying to get out of pulling ivy from the garage roof. I said to him, look, it's my way of bonding with you. I was in labor between 12 and 27 hours with you two, so each year on mother's day I like you to do hard labor, too.
