I Heart My Little A-Holes: A bunch of holy-crap moments no one ever told you about parenting by Karen Alpert
Publisher: HarperCollins Publishers
Popular blogger Karen Alpert shares her hysterical take on the many "joys" of parenting—I Heart My Little A-Holes is full of hilarious stories, lists, thoughts and pictures that will make you laugh so hard you'll wish you were wearing a diaper.
This book was recommended to me by a co-worker when I was still pregnant with baby #2 a.k.a. Micro JG. I devoured it in one night and I'm pretty sure I kept JG up because there were so many pages that made me laugh out loud.
The author pokes fun at herself and her family describing everyday situations that a parent can expect to happen.
After reading this book, I've even caught myself doing some of the hilarious things Alpert does to find time for herself. Just last week, I locked myself in the pantry to eat a chocolate bar while Mini JG was crying about a toy she couldn't put together and Micro JG wouldn't nap. Not my greatest parenting moment, but sometimes you need a break.
I Heart My Little A-Holes is one of my favourite "parenting" books and brings #MommyProblems to a whole new level. It's a book all parents should read. Some may want to read it just for a laugh, while others may give it a go for proof that they're not alone.
