A pictorial tribute to the filthy, distasteful, gross, and painful moments of parenthood, and the children who make it all possible.
Kids: they are the light of your life—and the enemy of all things fragile, intact, and clean. But why cry over spilt milk . . . or paint . . . or the entire contents of a full-size swimming pool? A testament to the messiness of childhood (and parenting), and a memorial to the household items that perished along the way, here are never-before-seen photos and outrageous stories of VCRs jammed with toys, toilets clogged with clothes, and furniture accented with permanent marker. Torn-up computer keyboards and torn-out hair, botched family photos and mustard-covered treadmills—nothing is off limits to your darling, destructive offspring. So raise a broken glass and embrace the madness, because laughter is the only surefire way to keep your sh*t together.

This is funny and sweet. It's organized from A to Z, covering all the major bases of things 'ruined' by children from alone time to computer keyboards to urinary continence to maybe my favorite: "your flight." It's sweet and loving with just a little bite. I love it!!

Based off of the website of the same name, this book consists of submissions from numerous people of things that their children have ruined. The book is organized by letter (something it took me a little while to pick up on) and most are pictures representing things like "my favorite purse" or "my ability to sleep in". It's pretty funny (I honestly laughed out loud at a few of them), but also really short with an average of about four or five entries per letter. It's an amusing thing to flip through for a few minutes, but seems more suited for a fun little gift than actual reading material.

I do wish there were disclaimers for books like this. Books with lots of photographs are not readable on the Simple Nook. Barnes and Noble is being disingenuous in not making it clear to buyers that they cannot see photographs or pictures in certain books. I feel ripped off due to Barnes and Noble, not the writer. It was a great idea.

A quick, fun read, but not worth the $9.99. Wish I had my money back to spend on something more worthwhile.

If you download the sample , that is the best part of the book. Otherwise , if you like looking at pics of peoples kids you don't even know, then go for it .
