Publisher's Summary

Now that I'm a mom, I know the most painful part isn't getting something giant through your hooha. It's having a real live child.
If you are the kind of mom who shapes your kiddo's organic quinoa into reproductions of the Mona Lisa, do not listen to this book. If you stayed up past midnight to create posters for your PTO presidential campaign, do not listen to this book. If you look down your nose at parents who have Domino's pizza on speed dial, do not listen to this book.
But if you are the kind of parent who accidentally goes ballistic on your rugrats every morning because they won't put their shoes on and then you feel super guilty about it all day so you take them to McDonalds for a special treat but really it's because you opened up your freezer and panicked because you forgot to buy more frozen pizzas, then absolutely listen to this book.
I Want My Epidural Back is a celebration of mediocre parents and how awesome they are and how their kids love them just as much as children with perfect parents. Karen Alpert's honest but hilarious observations, stories, and quips will have you nodding your head and peeing in your pants. Or on the toilet if you're smart and listen to it there.
PLEASE NOTE: When you purchase this title, the accompanying reference material will be available in your Library section along with the audio.

A definite listen, for all us "mediocre" moms!!!

I very rarely will actually write a review, I usually just click the stars and move on.... But if you have any sense of humor, kids less than 6ish, and constantly wonder if you're the only bat shit crazy mom that thinks they way to do, than this book is for you!!! I swear it's like she took actual pieces of my life and put them into a book! So many truly laugh out loud moments- and very refreshing to know I'm not the only "mediocre" mommy out there! I listened to her first book also, and really enjoyed it- but this one, was absolutely hysterical!! Can't wait to read all her adventures in her next phase of parenting!
