I Heart My Little A-Holes by Karen Alpert

Ages 18+book cover

This may be, quite honestly, the funniest book I’ve ever read. This book was written by a mother who has young children and loves them very much. However, she uses this book to complain about her kids and highlight all the stuff that sucks about being a parent. I’m not a parent myself, but I thought this book was hilarious! It’s definitely on the raunchy side, please be warned, but if you don’t mind the f-bomb sprinkled here and there, I totally recommend it! Oh, and by the way, the book was born from a blog called Baby Sideburns so feel free to check it out!
