Y'know what? Parenting is tough sometimes, and it's great to know you're not the only one dealing with some of the crazy sh*t the job brings with it. This book had me snorting laughter through my nose multiple times, usually while on break at work, which is my favorite! ( )

One of the funniest books I've ever read. You don't have to have kids to appreciate the humor here. :) ( )

This book is so me. That's pretty sad but I loved it! ( )

Very funny! I loved all the little asides and lightbulbed "What to Remember" takeaways at the end of every chapter. And mixed amid the humor are often little tidbits of common sense, helping us harried moms keep things in perspective. ( )

I think my expectations for "Sh*tty Mom: The Parenting Guide for the Rest of Us" somewhat sabotaged my enjoyment of it. I expected humor (and humor I got), but I also expected some actual advice and guidance, and that I did not get.

For me, the best and funnies part was the chapter headings (while the chapters themselves were hit-or-miss in the humor department). "He Wants Sex, You Want to Sew Your Legs Shut for Ten Years" (advice within: "allow and encourage porn", and "on occasion, give it up"). "Organized Sports Might Be Great For the Kids, but They Suck for You" (which was one of the better chapters, and made me laugh out loud more than once - for every Michael Phelps' mom, there is a hundred "For ten years, I sat in the bleachers next to Michael Phelps' mom" moms - still cracks me up). "How to Feel Nothing When You Dump Them at Grandma's for the Weekend/Week/Month/Summer/Ever" (which I personally think I have already mastered).

It was a very quick read, and I got some chuckles out of it. My recommendation: check it out from the library. ( )
