    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 ofSh*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
