Editorial Reviews

Jill Smokler
“Crass, inappropriate and absolutely hysterical. In other words, absolutely everything you could want in a parenting book and more.”
Nicole Knepper
“Beware of Mom: She bites. Karen is crass and abrasive and makes no apologies, nor should she. Her take on family life is funny, filthy and familiar... Reading her stories will make you laugh so hard...your head will explode.”
Kirkus Reviews
2014-03-16
Rants on the messier side of raising children. If your sense of humor is not stimulated by crass, expletive-filled, snarky comments on the bodily functions of babies and toddlers, then do not bother with this book. If, however, you like to be bombarded by frequent expletives, elaborate descriptions of poop and vomit, derogatory comments on parents and children, and find this hilarious, then feel free to romp through the vulgar meanderings Alpert has compiled from her blog on raising her two children. Although she provides a disclaimer that she loves them to pieces, the author complains about just about everything in regard to her kids, albeit in a semiwitty way. For instance, she discusses the stuff you need and don't need to purchase for that new arrival; taking your two young children to the restroom when "you thought keeping one kid's hands out of the frigging tampon trash can in the public restroom sucked"; and traveling with two little kids—"now that I have two little rug rats in tow, going to the airport is worse than being waterboarded." Or dealing with other mothers: "I'm sick of moms trying to make other moms feel like shit….Moms bragging. Moms being all Judgy McJudgy. Moms giving other moms assholey looks." Since humor is subjective, many readers may, in fact, "laugh until they pee in their pants a little," while others may find the sarcastic use of the F-word irritating and excessive, the descriptions of messy diapers just plain gross, and the whole series of blog posts and chapter headings—e.g., "Allllllll the ways my body is different (i.e., sucks balls) after carrying two poop machines"; "An open letter to my vajayjay"—off-putting. Definitely not for the faint of heart, Alpert's zingers will make you either hoot and holler or cringe. Completely over-the-top, scattered, only occasionally funny parenting humor. Pick up Robin O'Bryant or Jill Smokler instead.

“Crass, inappropriate and absolutely hysterical. In other words, absolutely everything you could want in a parenting book and more.”
Moms Who Drink and Swear - Nicole Knepper
“Beware of Mom: She bites. Karen is crass and abrasive and makes no apologies, nor should she. Her take on family life is funny, filthy and familiar, but only if you are a raging realist with little tolerance for the bullshitical utterances from delusional, or simply overmedicated mommies at playgroup. Reading her stories will make you laugh so hard, your genitals will probably fall off and your head will explode.”

    Lollipopkit

    She walked back in with her new pet mouse. She made a little hole for it. And took some of the moss from her bed and made a little bed for her mouse. She then took a leaf and made a tiny bowl. She took a berry and a small nut she found and put them in the little bowl. She put her mouse in the hole. She then decided to name it mint. Mint slowly walked over to the bowl and took the berry first. She sniffed it and took a small nibble. Then began eating the whole thing. She layed down in her bed and took a nap. Lollipopkit left mint to sleep and left to peek at another clan.

    I laughed once

    Maybe it would be funnier for a mom with singletons.

    Not impressed with the title.

    How far we have come. How nice for your children to know that they are concerned to be A--holes.
