If you feel like your kids are killing you, you've come to the right place. Attention all potty-mouthed, cheap-wine-drinking mothers: Prepare to meet your match. Any bad thought you've had about your kids, Nicole Knepper has had worse. Much worse. It's not that she doesn't love her kids. It's that she understands what a mind-f*?% it can be to try to civilize those wild little beasts. Based on her hugely popular Facebook page, "Moms Who Drink and Swear," this book reveals why family dinners are like herpes, how to avoid smashing toys that are being fought over, and the joy of hearing that your son has murdered his imaginary friend. As Nicole rants and raves about caring for children (without crushing their souls), family togetherness (without too many tears), the saving grace of girlfriends (and vodka), and love and marriage (and all the baggage that goes with them), she gets to the heart of what every exasperated mom is thinking, just much funnier.

Professional reviews

"Belly laughs abound in this memoir of birthing and raising children with the support of some very good BFF's. The author's unfiltered complaints and locker-room language will allow moms to free up reactions they normally suppress and be reassured that venting anger, drinking excessively, and bending rules are absolutely necessary to survive being a mom. Knepper's vocal tone is that of a worldly middle-schooler whose shtick is equal parts chutzpah, self-deprecating honesty, and a bottomless supply of one-liners. Her phrasing of this in-your-face writing makes every sentence clear and understandable. Overall, this is one of the most liberating parenting audios ever made because it validates reactions moms are told not to feel, while celebrating the effort and love they put into raising their children day after day.
