eBook Sh*tty Mom for All Seasons: Half-@ssing It All Year Long Content warning. As you can tell by the name of this book, there will be some off-color content. There will also be some in this review. You were warned.I started this book fully expecting to be laughing all the way through it. I laughed so hard at the first chapter. I mean, what’s not funny about: …perfect trips with kids are like vaginal orgasms: Good luck with that. Wouldn’t spring break travel be easier if we got advice that was less like zesty Internet porn and more like the sex life of a middle-aged married couple? The theme of that spring break trip would be founded on three simple ideas: Lower your expectations. Minimize the surprises. Manage the dysfunction.But soon, it just wasn't as funny. I stopped laughing. It was like the authors spent a lot of time getting the first chapter perfectly hilarious - but the next few just weren't as inspired. I mean, it's amusing, sure. And relatable. A little. It just didn't have me cracking up like that first chapter. And it gets kind of fucked up. Not funny fucked up. Which I'm all for. Just fucked up. (And if that bothers you, FYI, you really don't want to read this book. I don't think they have an 'edited for television' version.) The shock value of this stuff - funny in the first chapter, gets a semi-amused yawn by this point. It's almost like they're trying to be the Andrew Dice Clay of the mom set. And most of the jokes end up falling into the "I'm-sick-of-being-a-parent-so-I-want-to-get-rid-of-you-for-a-few-days-and-drink-martinis-and-watch-Netflix-I-don't-care-how" category. It's kind of funny, but you can only tell that joke in a certain number of ways before it stops being funny. And there are quite a few un-PC references. I don't want to be the PC police, but don't know how to characterize it. If you're not amused at slightly humorous references to the Amish, the Irish, gender stereotypes, old people, kids with ADHD, people who can't eat gluten…this book may also not be for you. Really, what most people call being PC is just not being an asshole. I mean, there are some nuggets in there: "Kids think their creations are amazing. This is partly your fault for clapping when they pooped."But in the overall scheme, I stopped LOLing and started SAing (Smiling Amusedly) at the funnier jokes. And chapter 4 - do people still get on Listservs? Hasn't that that been replaced by Google Hangouts and FaceBook Groups? What is this, 2002?Take this as an example. I'm dealing with road rage, the first suggestion is to take it out on the Starbucks barista? Really? I know it's supposed to be funny, but since so many people take their rage out on Starbucks baristas (and other people who serve them) it just screams being a privileged asshole. But see, it was followed up by this particularly inspired rant about who to take your rage out on: Truckers with girly wheel flaps.The only problem with yelling at these guys is they might be packing heat. Find one who’s headed into the restroom and tell him (while he walks in) what you think of his denigrating wheel flaps. There’s no reason to objective the female body like that! Also, can’t one of these smutty companies make a wheel flap of Mark Wahlberg? Fucking patriarchy!This is kinda funny: “Thanksgiving was obviously invented by men to celebrate a short workweek that ends in three of their favorite things: carbohydrates, football, and sitting.” And I did laugh at these New Year’s Resolutions: -Don’t swear around, about, or at your children. If you can’t follow these rules, just don’t do the last one. -Establish a money jar to penalize yourself for every time you swear around or about your children. -Give the swearing jar’s contents to charity when it’s full. -Stop stealing from the swearing jar to pay for field trips, hot lunch accounts, and parking meters. If you need to empty it completely - because you need money for beer and pizza - refill it the next day, or as soon as your kids notice.Though not because I related to it. Oh, no. That would be bad. In the end, the ends didn’t justify the means. Or, it wasn’t as funny as I’d hoped. I might have actually told you all the really funny parts in this review. They definitely aren't representative of the rest of the book. 2 out of 5 stars for the stuff I thought was funny. Was this book really written by 2 producers of the Today Show?

Popular Book Sh*tty Mom for All Seasons: Half-@ssing It All Year Long DNF at 54%. Mostly by skimming.OK, I though this would be funny, but it isn't for me. It must be for other moms or dads, but the humor is not funny, and the stories are forced, and I guess I wasn't that kind of mom in any sense of the word.However, don't let that stop you from reading this book when it comes out. It might appeal to you. I was telling someone else about this book, and they laughed when I told them one of the stories I felt was white-privileged, and a whole bunch of other things that I hated about it.But, here, is the section where I stopped, and said WFT, but which you might laugh out loud to.How to fix itThe smell of puke is contagious, so you need to triage this shit. First, slam on the breaks, jump out of the car and open the puke-side door. Next, strip the clothes off everyone who isn't already naked. Now open your husband's luggage and pull out all the large, absorbent undershirts you can find, unless you stole some towels from the hotel; don't waste time worrying about ethics, the hotel doesn't want them back now anyway.Afrer heavy wiping, take hand sanitizer water bottles and dump liquid all over the seats and your kid. Dry the seats with dirty socks, underwear and any stuffed animals your kids may have won at local carnivals. Those toys are probably made out of toxic waste anyway, and should be buried. When you can't do any more, find a nearby trashcan. If there is no trashcan nearby, leave the entire pile of puke-soaked fabric by the side of the road. Sorry volunteer cleanup crew. But this is no time to be a good citizen.This is not like the Cursing Mommy, in the New Yorker, which I absolutely love, and relate to, and which I hoped this was like.So, after getting as far as the end of summer vacation (since this is all seasons), I gave up, and leave someone else to finish this book. I have better things to do.Thanks to Netgallery for making this book available for an honest review.

  5. I like snark I like irreverence When done right it s awesome When done poorly it s just bitchy, petty, and mean.This book didn t quite get to those things but I pretty much stopped at 6% in Why I m not that much of a jerk to myself.Listen You might dig this book I didn t I honestly couldn t keep reading and if you feel up to the challenge Go ahead NetGalley read Honest review Thanks to the publishers Yada Yada Yada


  6. I received a copy of this book free from NetGalley.I confess that I normally love snarky parenting books But this one just wasn t funny A lot of listicles at the personality of different types of moms but none of them made me laugh It was just sort of kind of amusing but not really funny or new or interesting.


  7. I liked this book significantly than the first one Way less cringe inducing moments that made me question why the authors ever had children It doesn t really have much advice but I think it does the job of making moms feel less bad guilty about short comings although they seem particularly harsh to husbands and leaning into stereotypes about how useless they are Did make me laugh out loud a few times Update just realized it wasn t the exact same set of writers from the first book In my opinion [...]


  8. Started this expecting a funny read Lord knows I am not and have never been a perfect mother, and I wanted to tag along and read and nod along to stuff I can relate to as an imperfect mum.However, all too soon, the tone started to grate, to the point where it even got insensitive It read a bit too much like bashing and blaming others for all the wrongs and getting out of everything scot free while leaving a huge mess behind Bit of a trainwreck, to be honest Ended up DNF ing halfway through, as I [...]



  9. As is often the case I received this book free for the purposes of review This time from NetGalley Despite that kindness my candid thoughts follow.The nutshell on this one is that it goes through month by month describing farcical and rather acerbic solutions to everyday parenting problems For example, how to clean up vomit in the car or cope with cabin fever or Yoga moms at school This is all intended, of course, to be tongue in cheek and while you re allowed to think about following this advic [...]


  10. As you read this book and find yourself sayingwho thinks these things You ve obviously not raised the same life sucking cute little offspring that I have I laughed and laughed and often made my husband read parts I found utterly accurate to our lives I think one of my favorite lines out of the whole book is Reminder In parenthood, the main goal is staying afloat After that, the main goal is getting the kids on their own damn boat Bon voyage If you are looking for a laugh out loud, maybe you aren [...]


  11. The amount of pressure on moms these days is ridiculous Many of us work full time, are expected to keep ourselves fit, make cute pinterest worthy favors for every school party, play nice with all the other moms at the swimming pool, find new and creative ways to supplement our kid s schoolwork, and somehow manage to raise respectful children without resorting to the television as a babysitter while we squeeze in a much needed bathroom break This book points out this ridiculousness and basically [...]


  12. As a mum of 4 children I have read my fair share of parenting books I was looking forward to this one as the blurb made it sound very funny Well it is NOT what a terrible, unfunny, unimaginative book I would go as far as to say this is a painful read.This is full of stories and anecdotes about parenting but I really am not sure of their purpose They are not funny and they are not helpful some of the mothering solutions in the book are beyond ridiculous and any mother with a pinch of common sense [...]


  13. Special thanks to NetGalley, for providing a free copy from the publisher, in return for an honest review.I tried so hard to like this book, I really do Few pages in, I thought this book was kinda witty, but after that, it gets repetitive fast and the jokes all fall flat In the Ellen show, there s a segment where people can submit hilarious photos or videos of their children misbehaving called Why I don t Have Kids This book is kinda like the boring book version of that, made not for mothers, bu [...]


  14. Disclaimer I received this e ARC from net galley in exchange for an honest review This book was hilarious, from beginning to end I laughed at all the quirky, sarcastic and insane things in this book It does have quite a fair bit of swearing but if you aren t easily offended and can see humor in the things we do and think daily as mom s this book is for you I honestly let this book take me to the light hearted cynical part of parenting, the one all parents come to when they are over tired and hav [...]


  15. Some funny stuff but some stuff comes across kind of bitter Maybe it s because I m a new mom and so haven t really gotten into the thick of things yet but it has the voice of a woman who resents how much of her life is taken up by her kids and wishes she could wash her hands of the whole thing, not just when things get crazy but all the time I sort of expected it to be making fun of the super mommy unachievable ideal, and it does, but from the POV of a mom who does not give a shit Just don t ta [...]


  16. I thought this book was quite witty, reminded me of Fiona Gibsons The Fish Finger Years he me laughing out loud, told my friends to buy it as soon as its out When your having a bad day with the kids read this book you ll feel normal and not as bad straight away Hilarious would definitely recommend, fab keep them coming I received an ARC via NetGalley in exchange for an honest and open review.


  17. I received this book from Netgalley to review.I thought it was a funny tongue in cheek book about being a mom I could relate to many things It wasn t supposed to be serious but a fun way to look at being a mom, to not be so serious because kids will be kids Life is to be lived and not suppose to be so hard I would recommend this book to any mom who wants a good look at the funny side of parenting.


  18. This was truly a comical, funny and educational read I don t have kids but have babysat enough and run into enough of them thru my 65 years that I just laughed all the way through this book They have a marvelous sense of humor telling you if this doesn t apply to you skip ahead to chapter 74 which there isn t any such chapter and really telling the truth about raising your special little dear one Reminded me strongly of Erma Bombeck s books


  19. Although not all the situations were applicable to me YET this was a very funny look at life It is exaggerated and satire, not to be taken too seriously, but just a fun and quick read I wish I had the courage to say even 1 10th of the stuff out loud.


  20. I got this because I thought it would be a fun and funny read about the challenges we all face A bit of snark to make me giggle.I think it just took it too far on the ugly side and it came off less funny and nasty I received a copy from netgalley in exchange for a review






  21. A very funny look at the art of mothering that reminds us all that we can t take parenting too seriously.I received this book free from Netgalley in exchange for an honest review.


  22. Every Mom has lived most if not all of this book, it is hilarious and heartbreaking all at once Mom s read it to know you are not alone Everyone else read it, laugh and then know it is all true.
