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.

Karen Alpert is the ridiculously hairy, self-deprecating writer of the blog Baby Sideburns. She has spent the past fifteen years working for national advertising agencies until she was promoted to her newest favorite job—Mommy. She lives with her two amazing kiddos and a very forgiving husband.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Skip this one This novel was a bunch of terrible blog posts that were named and called chapters. It was all over the place and the few lol moment weren't worth the rest of self indulged nonsense.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Couldn't even finish :( It's pretty rare that I don't finish a book, I was really looking forward to this one. I only managed to get about half way through before I gave up. If you really, really, like poop jokes, you might enjoy it. There were some funny moments, but generally it felt forced and repetitive (kids poop a lot and in inconvenient places, we get it!). Again, if you are one to really enjoy bathroom humor, then this might be perfect for you. If you want something similar but a bit more refined, I'd suggest The Mommy Shorts Guide to Remarkably Average Parenting - same type of book, but much, much funnier.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Freaking Hilarious! A Great one for all the Mamas & Mama-to-Be outh there! I had no clue what I was getting into when I had my twin boys. Karens book made me realize that none of us do... and that all the crazy ridiculous feelings or situations I had bee through during pregnancy, the first year and toddlerhood are all normal. And totally acceptable to laugh at

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good read for all the mommas out there! I really loved this book. Its hard for most mommas to find the time to sit down and read but if you do find a few short minutes get lost in this book! Its a breath of fresh air and a ton of reassurance that you are not alone in your parenting journey. You will def have some laughs with this one! I have gifted this book to a few friends after the birth of baby #2 :P

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Hilarious and so True! I bought this and devoured it in 2 days, which is saying a lot when you have 2 small children and only get to read while nursing! Also, a bonus is the small size, allowing me to read while nursing. Karen is able to lovingly poke fun at herself and her family as they navigate the landmine filled journey known as parenting. A must for all parents and parents-to-be as it not only lets you know what you are in for but also normalizes your experience.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from I Heart my Little A-Holes Bought this for my dtr who is expecting her 3rd child. I read it first and laughed out loud as I remember these same feelings. My dtr enjoyed it too. Maybe a little over the top with the language.

Editorial Reviews

“Beware of Mom: She bites. Karen is crass and abrasive and makes no apologies, nor should she. Her take on family life is funny, filthy and familiar... Reading her stories will make you laugh so hard...your head will explode.”
