The best-selling book I Heart My Little A-Holes from Karen Alpert is a must read! Karen Alpert is most well-known for being the funny mom behind Baby Sideburns, the award-winning and wildly popular blog. This hot new book, just like the blog isn’t for everyone simply because they are a parent. This book is a hysterical laugh out loud type of read. So many of the things that are included come across as been there done that moments.
Readers should beware that this author does not hold anything back what-so-ever! So if you don’t like the “F” word then you are going to have to make a choice to ignore them as you read or to pass on this one altogether. But I would recommend just skipping over those words, because you shouldn’t pass this one up at all! The letters to her son and daughter will very likely hit home! This book definitely requires more than a sense of humor, readers need to keep the ability to take a moment to laugh at themselves. You have seen it time and again when you find a book in a store that you can relate easily too. However, some authors don’t always share all topics publicly, and with this book nothing is held back. You will find yourself chuckling and laughing right at and along with Baby Sideburns.
So when it comes to reading a 250+ page book, what can you expect? There are really too many topics to list, however anyone who reads this book would agree that it is completely uninhibited, wickedly funny, and a shameless look at being a parent. If you are looking for a self-help, Hallmark moment or anything like that, then this isn’t the book for you. However, if you are a fan of Baby Sideburns and you enjoy some crass and off the wall type of stories then you should grab up this book quickly. In I Heart My Little A-holes, Karen Alpert lays it all out there. The good, the bad, the ugly and all the more screwed up sides of being a parent. Be careful if you read this book in public! I read it on the way to work on the bus one morning and I was in a perpetuated state of laughing and crying! Some parts of the book are so spot on and you find you can’t help but laugh wildly, and then in another part you are moved to tears because you can relate to the saggy boobs, baby boners, and vajayjays that are unrecognizable, etc. This book is broken down in to perfectly sized chapters that you can read through quickly. Overall, this book is refreshing and hilarious. It is a take on parenting that shows that you just can’t take what life throws at you to seriously.
