Overview

I Heart My Little A-Holes: A Bunch of Holy-Crap Moments No One Ever Told You about Parenting by Karen Alpert

Following the success of Go the F**k to Sleep, Confessions of a Scary Mommy, and Ketchup Is a Vegetable, a collection of funny, warm, and charmingly profane tales from the frontlines of parenthood by the author of the popular Baby Sideburns blog.

Once upon a time you and your partner had a perfect life: dinners out, weekend mornings cuddling in bed, brunch with friends. Then you gave birth to a poop machine (or two). Now, it's all about the pediatrician, breast pumps, princess dresses, and minivans. And discovering that your pride and joy is actually a little A-hole.

When your son wakes you up at 3:00 A.M. because he wants to watch Caillou, he's an a-hole. When your daughter outlines every corner of your living room with a purple crayon, she's an a-hole. When your rug rats purposely paint the kitchen ceiling with their smoothies, they're a-holes. At times like these, it's only natural to want to kill them (or yourself). But it's against the law (and there's the suicide hotline). Plus, there's that whole loving them more than anything in the whole world thing.

In I Heart My Little A-Holes, Karen Alpert shares hilarious stories, lists, and deep thoughts on the joys and horrors of raising children. Accompanied by cheery illustrations and photos I Heart My Little A-Holes will make you laugh so hard you'll wish you were wearing a diaper.

Loved it! Wish Karen Alpert and her humor had been around when my kids were little to help me not take everything so seriously!

Think of all of the thoughts you have in a day and write them down in no particular order. That's this book. With a better editor, or an author with more than a 6th grade knowledge of grammar, it could have been much better. As it is, I just can't read one more "anyways" in a book I paid money for.

This book had some much needed laughs though I felt most were in preview of the book. I love anything that normalizes parenting.

Hilarious and refreshingly honest. I definitely will be recommending this book! You don't have to be a parent to enjoy this read either!

This was hilarious. I couldn't put it down and ended up reading it within a couple hours.

Maybe it would be funnier for a mom with singletons.

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.

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