Overview

Moms Who Drink and Swear: True Tales of Loving My Kids While Losing My Mind by Nicole Knepper

If you feel like your kids are killing you, you’ve come to the right place.

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.

I truly enjoyed this short story. I loved the details that really give a true glimpse into military life and the times the story occured in. All that and the story is very funny.

This book is a fun, witty, potty-mouthed, sarcastic, wine-buzzed source of oh-so-relatable scenarios written as though Nichole Knepper can read my thoughts. I constantly had a smile on my face as I read this. Definately a future re-read!

I peed my pants laughing, ran for the tissue box in tears, and nodded my head in agreeable silence as I read this book. Beautifully written, honest and endearing a must read for all parents.
