    Robin has an amazing talent for being able to tell the cold, hard truths of motherhood (the things you would rather not think about!) but making you laugh so hard in the process, you'll be begging for Poise pads.  Fantastic treat!

    I loved this funny, funny book about the insanity of raising kid

    I loved this funny, funny book about the insanity of raising kids. Robin O'Bryant is a talented author who knows that humor is sometimes the only thing that can keep you going, and she is willing to share that with her readers. We've all had those moments as parents when we are just sure we're raising perverted little anti-social creatures who will NOT make us proud. Every essay in this collection is a laugh-out-loud, call your best friend and read a few paragraphs so she can laugh too kind of book. I can hardly wait to get "A Second Helping", which is more of the same. Do yourself a favor and order this one today. You'll find yourself re-reading it often to reassure yourself that you are not alone. And, like Anne Lamott and Celia Rivenbark, she's also inspiring to those of us who are not "perfect parents" and know it.

    more from this reviewer

    Strong Start

    I was excited to start this book and was using it as a light refresher between some heavy book club reading. I enjoyed the actual (often hilarious) situations and dialogue the author found herself in with her three daughters. I chuckled out loud quite a few times. I especially loved the road trip from hell with a sick husband scenario. However, the author changes tone and the later parts of the book wane into her own musings about family and God which I didn't know I had signed up for and I found quite irritating and moralistic at times.

    You will laugh out loud

    Excellent charater development. Sincere and realistic humor. After reading it on my electronic reader, I purchased three copies as gifts.

    Light, funny and not just for mom's!

    I thoroughly enjoyed this book. I am not a mom, but certainly hear stories of what it is like to be one. The author's take on the subject is funny, quirky and sometimes brings a tear to your eye, although I laughed a lot too. I have recommended it to sisters and friends. It's the kind of book that you read at the beach or between heavier books when you just want something lighthearted. I would certainly read others by this author.

    Cute

    Cute and well-written. I have to admit that I didn't know what sort of book it was, and I'm sure I would have enjoyed it more if I had. In any case, I found it worthy. Enjoy.
