All I can say is that Ayun Holliday rocks as a mom, parent, and gal who can be my Platonic coffee date any day of the week! ( )

I've long been a fan of The East Village Inky and was happy to stumble across Halliday's memoir. Her voice is an original and hilarious one, straight from the underbelly of motherhood. Rings true, and brings back both the horrors and the delights of those early, fugue-like days. ( )

One of my favorite books in this genre of telling-it-all about motherhood with small children. Ayun Halliday is very funny. I interviewed her in 2003. ( )

I read this book while sitting on a beach. I laughed out loud and people stared. I didn't care. THis was the funniest books I had read in a long time. I needed it. I could relate to almost everything she said about parenting and motherhood specifically. I think I just might read it again. ( )
