school due to the tell all nature of the memoir, the name of the school has been changed and its location not given Rouse spends most of the book detailing the horrible behaviors of the Mean Mommies or M2s , a group of rich women, mothers of students, who because of entitlement, or just plain meanness spend their time denigrating students, staff and other parents, and borrowing school materials and staff for their own personal projects The Mean Mommies, and especially their leader, Kitsy not her real name , make Rouse s life a living hell, and they are horrible people, but in my opinion, the worst person in the book is Rouse himself He not only puts up with the M2s abuse, but often enables it and he acknowledges that he does all this purely so that he can gain favor in their eyes He steals canned goods and stuffed animals from the school s holiday drive, so that Kitsy can re donate them herself When he observes the children of the M2s verbally abusing another girl, he looks the other way A married gay man, he explains away the fact that these women and the school administrators won t even acknowledge the existence of his husband They call him a fa ot TO HIS FACE, and he makes excuses all in the hopes that he ll be invited to their parties, that they ll lavish him with expensive gifts, that he ll be welcomed into their popular kids club.Toward the end of the book, Rouse has an epiphany of sorts and realizes that he s basically selling his soul for the crumbs of recognition these rich, popular people dole out from time to time He confronts Kitsy, and she being an entitled rich person gets her feelings hurt, then acts like nothing has changed and tries to continue ordering him around Thankfully, Rouse comes to his senses, hands in his notice, and leaves with some of his dignity intact.In a postscript to the memoir, he confesses that the school later begs him to come back, that everything has changed, that the Mean Mommies have lost all their power He of course accepts, and returns to the school, where he s sure everything will be sunshine and lollipops from here on out No word on whether his long suffering spouse had an epiphany himself and got out while the getting was good A true laugh out loud memoir of working at MICDS in St Louis Loved it Exactly what the Laduites are like I read this book because of all of the hub bub it caused when I will still living in St Louis Because, yes, the school talked about here is most likely MICDS seeing as all one has to do is google Wade Rouse or read the St Louis Post Dispatch to know that he worked theretwice.I wanted to see how Rouse described the school since many of my friends from College and Grad school went there Needless to say, I wasthan disappointed Not that I don t believe that SOME of this happened I read this book because of all of the hub bub it caused when I will still living in St Louis Because, yes, the school talked about here is most likely MICDS seeing as all one has to do

there Needless to say, I wasthan disappointed Not that I don t believe that SOME of this happened but Rouse just sounded whiny the whole time Yes, his nemesis in the novel is actually a number of parents he worked with he just made her SO fake that she was really truly unrealistic.And Rouse s attempts to be funny were really just that attempts The book was a quick read but I found myself just waiting for it to be over like a bad amusement park ride.Book only gets 2 stars because a he mentions the where did you go to high school phenomenon and b while what he wrote I didn t really enjoy, he does write well This reminds me of a real life Mean Girls where the mean girls are the mothers of the students For those familiar with prep schools, there are many situations to which one can relate I am in awe of the courage of the author to subject himself to the behavior exhibited by these mothers However, I am so glad he got out of public relations and began his career as an author His fictional works under the pen mae Viola Shipman are wonderful and I highly recommend them Can t wait for his newest This reminds me of a real life Mean Girls where the mean girls are the mothers of

for his newest book The Heirloom Garden which will be released in April, 2020 Wade Rouse is a talented writer with a gift for humor Those abilities are on fine display in Confessions of a Prep School Mommy Handler, his memoir of working at a prestigious and wealthy prep school in the Saint Louis area The book does a great job of skewering the wealthy parents, particularly the Mean Mommies, who seem unfulfilled and therefore major in minor things at the school Much of the story focuses on Kitsy, the ringleader of the Mean Mommies, and Rouse s passive aggressive relati Wade Rouse is a

on Kitsy, the ringleader of the Mean Mommies, and Rouse s passive aggressive relationship with her While entertaining, Rouse is oftentimes such a doormat to Kitsy and her cronies that the book becomes difficult to read Rouse acknowledges his own lack of self respect and unwillingness to come out of the close to the school community, but fails to provide satisfactory answers about why he doesn t stand up for himself A generally fun read, though I hope that Rouse is nowwilling to stand up for himself This is a quick and light read, although conversely it deals with heavy topics Wade is a mommy handler at a top prep school, and this book follows a year of his life Wade is gay and afraid to come out in his position I didn t totally understand why he ended up basically working for Kitsy as she didn t appear to have an actual position at the school or in a PTA PTO The chapters are very short and readlike choppy essays. Part fictionalized but still delicious tell all, part pathetic lonely boy desperate to fit in confessional, Rouse s memoir had me flip flopping between laughter and profound sadness I m sure his job was every bit as awful as he described, but I m also sure his own insecurities helped make it that way I just wish the world were different and his life experiences as a gay man included less no hatred and prejudice As for the writing, his characters were a bit TOO caricature ish to take ser Part fictionalized but still delicious tell all, part pathetic lonely boy desperate to fit in confessional, Rouse s memoir had me flip flopping between laughter and profound sadness I m sure his job was every bit as awful as he described, but I m also sure his own insecurities helped make it that way I just wish the world were different and his life experiences as a gay man included less no hatred and prejudice As for the writing, his characters were a bit TOO caricature ish to take seriously If a single woman had been as blatantly awful as Kitsy, no mommy handler would have lasted a semester I think a bitsubtlety and a bitvarietycharacters, less amalgamation would have gone a long way toward improving the overall tone of the book 3 3.5 stars I just read this for the second time I liked it better the second time The first time was soon after it was published The first time it was silly and funny, but over the top And I dislike unproductive, self centered naval gazing For some reason this time it didn t seem silly Still humorous but Wade s journey feltreal and sad. Painful to read I put it down because it just wasn t funny, but somehow I picked it back up again Not sure why, although it did get slightly better when he talked about Miggie instead of Kitsy for a minute.
