Every Tuesday Diane at Bibliophile By the Sea hosts First Chapter First Paragraph Tuesday Intros, where we share the first paragraph or (a few) of a book we are reading or thinking about reading soon. Care to join us?

Teaser Tuesdays is a weekly bookish meme, hosted by MizB of Should Be Reading. Anyone can play along! Just do the following:
* Grab your current read
* Open to a random page
* Share two (2) “teaser” sentences from somewhere on that page
* BE CAREFUL NOT TO INCLUDE SPOILERS! (make sure that what you share doesn’t give too much away! You don’t want to ruin the book for others!)
* Share the title & author, too, so that other TT participants can add the book to their TBR Lists if they like your teasers!
This week I'm featuring one of the books I'll be reading soon.
If it hadn't been for the herd of wild animals thundering through my kitchen, I wouldn't have agreed to my best friend's plan so quickly. I don't live on a Montana ranch or an African preserve, but my suburban Washington, D.C., home more than qualifies as a zoo, especially on playgroup days.
"Mommy's on the phone!" I yelled as four kids screeched by, seemingly oblivious. Two of them were mine, so I blamed myself for their manners. But where was Irene, the other mom? I hoped she wasn't using Jack and Sophie's bathroom upstairs, which looked like it had been hit by a monsoon. That's what happens when you bathe children while devouring People magazine. Things get out of hand. It had been the most peaceful time of day so far.
"What do you mean missing?" I asked.
"She hasn't shown up for anything this week. Not checkups, not counseling, not even classes."
"What kind of classes? Childbirth?"
What do you think? Would you keep reading?
