Critic Reviews

"A totally hilarious and uncensored look at some of the impossible situations we mothers find ourselves in." (TheBump.com)
"Smartly, brashly, nearly criminally funny. It also - no small thing - carries a powerful message to all parents, but especially moms, that distilled to its essence is this: chill." (Time.com)
"As the attachment parenting craze has hit a zenith in American culture, four very funny moms - comedy writers, TV producers, and a novelist - blast open a long-locked safe filled with frustrations faced by all modern mothers, with sympathetic and sharp humor…. The authors' unfiltered candor is a welcome reminder for readers that they're not alone…." (Publishers Weekly, Starred Review)

Laugh out loud funny!

So funny, I was actually laughing out loud. My kids looked at me like I was crazy. These women should write a book geared towards moms with younger kids who are close together.

I think all moms should read this. It applies to all of us. The only ones that should not read are those who take offense to foul language.

A bit much

It was funny but sometimes a bit vulgar for what I was looking for. It seemed a little too targeted for its humor in some parts.

Can you say HILARIOUS

If you take things too literal or aim to be perfect this book isn't for you. If you want an entertaining feel good book to listen to/ read this is perfect! The narrator did an amazing job and I felt like I was chatting with a girlfriend.

Funny but narration was monotonous

It was pretty funny. A few bits were too dark but I did laugh out loud a couple times. Narration was terrible. Flat and monotonous. The whole time I was repeating the words in my head in how I thought it would have been said.
