Top 5 Funny Parenting Books
You might have heard of James Breakwell from his hilarious Twitter feed @XplodingUnicorn, or his previous book Only Dead On The Inside: A Parent’s Guide To Surviving The Zombie Apocalypse. While he might just be an “amateur parenting expert”, his ability to capture the essence of parenting is spot on and will keep you laughing/crying for hours! His new book is aimed at the real parent, and embracing less guilt, something we all can use!
I eagerly look forward to the Zits comics each week, to see what Jeremy and his family are up to. My fridge is plastered with clippings that remind me just how hard it is to parent teen and pre-teen boys!! This book is going on my Christmas wish list for sure!
What mom hasn’t uttered these words, more than once!?! A collection of essays from some of your favourite mom-bloggers, this is the first in a best-seller series of books! Also check out I Just Want To Be Alone, I Still Just Want To Pee Alone, I Just Want To Be Perfect, But Did You Die?, and You Do You!
I read this one like scripture, especially on those days when I just feel like giving up and throwing in the towel. I feel like the author is talking about me, and my love of swearing and red wine. As the title suggests…there is a fair amount of swearing.
From the popular blog and website Scary Mommy, comes a book that dives right into the down and dirty of motherhood. The types of stories you only want to post anonymously, but in the end, we’ve all been there, done that, and it’s time to laugh about it!!
Let’s face it, being a mom is a tough job, and if we aren’t laughing, we’re likely crying. I say we focus on the laughter, the shared stories, and how to let go of the guilt! These kids are likely going to turn out just fine! So grab one of these books, get one for your girlfriends, gather around for coffee, or with a bottle of wine, and celebrate getting through another day of parenting!
