When your son wakes you up at 3:00 A.M. because he wants to watch Caillou, he’s an a-hole. When your daughter outlines every corner of your living room with a purple crayon, she’s an a-hole. When your rug rats purposely decorate the kitchen ceiling with their smoothies, they’re a-holes. So it’s only natural to want to kill them sometimes. Of course you can’t because you’d go to prison, and then you’d really never get to poop alone again. Plus, there’s that whole loving them more than anything in the whole world thing.

I've been following Karen's blog, Baby Sideburns, for a few months now and love her witty humor. She never fails to make me laugh! I bought her book the day it was released and it was even better than reading her blog.
There was little repetition from her blog; by that I mean the book was almost all new material. I've read a couple of books written by bloggers and I'm always disappointed when their books contain a lot of old blog posts.
There are some funny illustrations, but my favorite addition were the short paragraphs included before each chapter. These vignettes could have been Facebook status updates, texts to friends, or just random hilarious thoughts. They were all so funny and added even more character to the book (not that more character was needed because Karen is plenty funny enough on her own).
Karen is hilarious and I love the way she thinks. Her thinking mirrors my own a lot of the time, and it's so nice to know I'm not alone in the way I look at things. This is a great book for moms--and dads too--and I'm so glad I bought it.
