Every Weekend” and “When Seeing an Infant Triggers a Mental Illness That Makes You Want to Have Another Baby,” as well as a Sh*tty Mom quiz, this is a must-have, laugh-out-loud funny book for the sh*tty 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.” —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

“Both funny and practical.” —Brooklyn Based.net

"Hilariously entertaining. A must-read survivor's guide for every mother!"
--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 Block

“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 Buggy

“An antidote to the hostage situation that is modern parenting...subversive, delicious, and spit-out-your-latte funny.”
--Pamela Druckerman, bestselling author of Bringing Up Bebe

Review:

"Smartly, brashly, nearly criminally funny...it also carries a powerful message to all parents, but especially moms, that distilled to its essence is this: chill." (Time Magazine)

"Not often does it happen to me that I open up a "parenting" book and I find myself laughing, nodding and reading-out-loud to anyone who happens to be in the room with me." (babble.com)

"This book will have you in stitches...grab a glass of wine and enjoy--it's the antidote to a rough day on the front lines." (momtrends.com)

"Containing personal anecdotes from all four authors about navigating the minefield of motherhood, from scheduling conference calls while the kids are at home to successfully dropping the children off at camp, the no-nonsense tome hopes to help other mothers realize parenting is a challenge for everyone, but humor can help." (People)

"If you've having a bad Mom day, yelling at your kids because you're in a foul mood or ducking out during homework time because you'd rather play on your smartphone than tackle sixth grade math all over again, take heart: There are four women out there who know you're not perfect, and they're here to give you a break." (NBC Today Moms)
