parent in all of us.
Praise for Sh*tty Mom:
"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."
"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
"Both funny and practical." -Brooklyn Based.net
"Hilariously entertaining. A must-read survivor''s guide for every
--Christy Turlington Burns, founder of Every Mother Counts
"Finally, Sh*tty Mom does for motherhood what Chelsea
Handler does for female scatology. It's a long overdue little burst
of honesty from the supposed minority of mothers who are, in fact,
not that maternal. . . . After a generation of supermoms one-upping
each other in dead earnest on playgrounds and schoolyards, the
emerging mass appeal of Sh*tty Mom is a welcome relief."
-The New York Observer
"Witty, wise, and wicked! With tongue planted firmly in cheek,
these savvy moms dispense some much needed comic relief about
raising kids in our crazy culture."?
--Dr. Harvey Karp, bestselling author of The Happiest Baby on
"The most inappropriate parenting book I''ve ever read. Loved it.
The perfect book for any mother who wants to laugh instead of cry
at those cringe-worthy moments and the universal indignities we
experience on a daily basis."
--Jessica Seinfeld, bestselling cookbook author and founder of Baby
"An antidote to the hostage situation that is modern
parenting…subversive, delicious, and spit-out-your-latte
--Pamela Druckerman, bestselling author of Bringing Up
