Parenting: advice & issues


by Alpert, Karen

Filled with hilarious stories (ranging from how to teach your kids to wipe to the perils of celebrating a birthday at the Rainforest Café); lists like "Ten Reasons I Hate Mother-Fing Caillou" and "Ten Milestones that SUCK ASS BIGTIME"; off-the-cuff reflections on motherhood (Zoey: Somebody has to come and wipe me because I pooped a BIG one. This sentence basically sums up my job description); and pictures that will make readers laugh so hard they'll wish they were wearing a diaper, I Heart My Little A-Holes is exactly what harried parents are looking for. It's no surprise that the book has quickly become a cultural phenomenon, not only hitting the list but garnering 265 five-star reviews on amazon and sustaining an incredibly active Facebook page.

Karen Alpert is behind the blog Baby Sideburns, which draws anywhere from 150,000 to over a million unique visitors per month; her accompanying Facebook page, which has over 142,000 fans; her debut book I HEART MY LITTLE A-HOLES was kickstarter-funded and self-published on October 22. It has already become a New York Times bestseller, with over 6000 copies sold in the first week alone.

"Crass, inappropriate and absolutely hysterical. In other words, absolutely everything you could want in a parenting book and more." - Jill Smokler, author of Confessions of a Scary Mommy

"Karen's take on family life is funny, filthy, and familiar - Reading her stories will make you laugh so hard, your genitals will probably fall off and your head will explode." - Nicole Knepper, author of Moms Who Drink and Swear
