"If you don't have anything nice to say about motherhood, then ... read this book. Robin O'Bryant offers a no holds barred look at the day to day life of being a mother to three, running a household and the everyday monotony of parenting. It's not always pretty but it's real. Whether she's stuffing cabbage in her bra ... dealing with defiant yet determined daughters ... yelling at the F.B.I ... or explaining the birds and the bees to her preschooler ... you're sure to find dozens of humorous and relatable situations. From the creator of Robin's Chicks, one of the South's most popular blogs on motherhood, misunderstandings and musings, comes a collection of essays that will not only make you laugh and cry, but realize that you're not alone in your journey. Sit back and relax, pour yourself some "mommy juice," throw a fresh diaper on your baby and deadbolt the bedroom door to keep your kids out ... because once you start reading you'll be too busy wiping away tears of laughter to wipe anybody's butt"-- Provided by publisher.

Some funny parts but generally a negative tone.

If you want to read a book about a mom whining about how hard everything is about being a mom, with occasional funny moments, this is the book for you. I, however, wish I had not picked the thing up and made myself read it. As a fellow mom, I could not relate to her at all. I could relate to the kids antics because been there. There are better books.

I almost gave up on this book early on because of the author's very negative attitude toward breastfeeding. However, I'm glad I persevered because, other than that, it is a funny, poignant book about being a mother to young children.

The perfect book to read when you're exhausted and need to be reminded about the ridiculousness of raising children. It's not easy, but if you can laugh at it, it's bearable!
