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.

Better w/o language

This would be a much better book if the language wasn't as bad as it is. Is there really a reason to use foul language to write a funny story?Should've done more reviewing before purchasing, my bad. Learned my less & will not finish or share book

Entertaining book about being a Mom

I went through a wide array of emotions. I didn't like some of the terms and language she used in reference to her kids, but I did like some of the ideas that she shared. It's nice to know another style of parenting and I did enjoy her bare all unfiltered narration.
