I'd Rather Wear Pajamas is a humorous memoir by Chelsea Walker Flagg chronicling her life as she leads the reader through her journey of self discovery where she finds out her own definition of what it means to be a strong woman. Dedicated to her three young daughters, I'd Rather Wear Pajamas is a lighthearted, engaging read that feels as though the reader is talking (and laughing) with a good friend. Beginning in Colorado when Chelsea was young child, a girl inspired by her own mother's strength and wanting to emulate it, I'd Rather Wear Pajamas allows the reader to follow Chelsea as she grows up, tripping along on a few hilarious mishaps, some awesome adventures, and a touching story of home birth.

I had a lot of fun reading I'd Rather Wear Pajamas by Chelsea Walker Flagg. With her memoir, the author manages to balance her writing with just the right amounts of personal touch, soul searching, and effervescence to make for a really enjoyable read. It is a book that can easily be read in one sitting and the workout you'll get from laughing is an added bonus. Chelsea has a way of crafting scenes that pull the reader in and have you living in each crazy, often hilarious, and sometimes very moving moments. Any parent of young kids should be able to relate to I'd Rather Wear Pajamas by Chelsea Walker Flagg. It's also good for anyone looking for a speedy, light read, one that is guaranteed to make you laugh. Enjoy!


This is a heartwarming, funny memoir about a truly genuine woman who is not afraid to share her path of self-discovery in life. You will meet few women more at home in their own skin. Her writing casts the ordinary occurrences of life into a new light as though you were seeing them for the first time through special eyes. I would give her memoir ten stars if I could. Chelsea’s writing is right up there with Erma Bombeck and Tina Fey.

I read this entire book cover to cover in one evening after my kids went to bed. I laughed and felt like I was sitting with an old friend I haven't seen in years, but we picked right up where we left off. What a fun, sweet story!


I loved this book! It was the right level of personal, while being both funny and touching. I highly recommend it - especially for parents of young kids. It reminded me of my journey to find my own way as a mom and professional.


Yes, I wrote this book, so I feel an obligation to give it five stars. But seriously, I would have given it five stars even if somebody else had written it because it's just that awesome. (Pats her own back)

Plus: Bonus for anyone crunched for time - you can read it from cover to cover in just under two hours. Trust me, I did it a dozen times during the editing stages.

And, even after all those read-throughs, I'm still giving it five stars. It's solid.


What a fun whimsical book! And a great reminder that half the fun in life is wandering through it discovering what really makes us happy.


Read this book! It will make you smile, laugh out loud, enjoy romance, and help you realize that we all have our own unique version of strong to share with the world. Enjoy life's journey - it's rarely what you planned for!
