If you feel like your kids are killing you, you've come to the right place. This irreverant, hilarious guide to the trials of motherhood makes the perfect gift for mom--or any woman with a huge heart and a mouth that sometimes needs washing out with soap. Attention all potty-mouthed, cheap-wine-drinking mothers: Prepare to meet your match. Any bad thought you've had about your kids, Nicole Knepper has had worse. Much worse. It's not that she doesn't love her kids. It's that she understands what a mind-f*?% it can be to try to civilize those wild little beasts. Based on her hugely popular Facebook page, "Moms Who Drink and Swear," this book reveals why family dinners are like herpes, how to avoid smashing toys that are being fought over, and the joy of hearing that your son has murdered his imaginary friend. As Nicole rants and raves about caring for children (without crushing their souls), family togetherness (without too many tears), the saving grace of girlfriends (and vodka), and love and marriage (and all the baggage that goes with them), she gets to the heart of what every exasperated mom is thinking, just much funnier.… (more)

The title does warn the reader: the book contains swearing. I just wasn't prepared for how much. I would likely have enjoyed the book more if it had been less liberal with its colourful language. Knepper does have a fun sense of humour and the scenes she describes will likely touch most moms who've struggled with their husbands and kids.
It's a compilation of blogs, so best read in small doses and with a glass of wine. Ultimately, though, it wasn't my cup of tea (see what I did there?). ( )
