Hurts Like A Mother – A Hilarious New Book For Moms

When I had my first baby I read just about every book I could find. I took my new role as mom very seriously and while I thought I was prepared for everything I surely was not. No one told me about all the funny, the strange, the challenging moments you have as your children start to get older. Hurts Like A Mother is a hilarious new cautionary tale that really tells you about all the ways that motherhood hurts. Hurts Like a Mother Book Mothers Day Gift Idea (2)This is a grown-up version of book parody of Edward Gorey’s classic The Gashlycrumb Tinies.  This book takes you on an A-Z journey through the perils of modern parenting as twenty-six moms succumb to hilarious and horrific child-care related fates.Hurts Like a Mother Book Mothers Day Gift Idea (3)One of my favorites was this one. Hurts Like a Mother will make you laugh so you don’t cry (or die).Hurts Like a Mother Book Mothers Day Gift Idea (4)As parents we know how stressful every day life with kids can be. It’s relaxing to just relax and read something funny and this book delivers on the funny! Hurts Like a Mother Book Mothers Day Gift Idea (1)

    I wish someone had to told me that the older they get the bigger the worries become.

    I wish I had been told about getting unsolicited advice when you are a first time mom.

    I wish someone would have told me it is never over I worry more the older they get then I did when they were younger

    I wish someone would’ve warned me about the judgy mommy wars lol I had no idea before I had my first child. So many think they need to voice their opinions on how someone should raise someone elses kids.

    You can read all the books, watch all the movies but you really can never be prepared for what’s about to happen!

    To take more pictures when they are really tiny!

    I wish someone would have told me to make sure to take naps when your kids take naps.

    enjoy the little things because life is short.



  10. Rosanne on April 21, 2016 at 10:04 am

    That even when they are in their 20’s and 30’s you are worrying about them more than ever! It doesn’t end @ 18 or after college or after they are married!

    Honestly, I got a lot of great advice. And a lot of horrible advice. I wish I had known that it was OK to listen to the advice, but then figure out what worked best for your family. Motherhood has been amazing, & with fertility issues, I think I am a better parent because of it but I still have moments that I get frustrated (and that is okay!).



  12. Penny Snyder on April 20, 2016 at 4:34 am

    That I would always be tired! 🙂



  13. Aubrey on April 19, 2016 at 10:54 pm

    I wish someone would have told me to relax and enjoy motherhood.



  14. Jessica on April 18, 2016 at 8:55 pm

    We are due with our first in August but I love reading all the responses! 🙂



  15. Erica B. on April 18, 2016 at 2:24 pm

    You will never really stop worrying.



  16. Robin on April 17, 2016 at 3:15 pm

    Your children will be young adults before you know it.



  17. Lisa V. on April 17, 2016 at 2:23 pm

    That I wouldn’t have time to myself (or much of it).



  18. Ashley C on April 15, 2016 at 4:45 am

    Some things get easier, but other things get harder. So it never really gets easier.



  19. Denise M on April 14, 2016 at 8:52 pm

    How little time there would be to yourself



  20. Brittney House on April 13, 2016 at 7:31 pm

    Make sure to take naps when your kids take naps.



  21. heather s on April 13, 2016 at 6:50 pm

    That you need to ask for help rather then try to do it all



  22. Tari Lawson on April 13, 2016 at 5:18 pm

    I wish someone had told me to make sure to take time for myself, especially when others need you most.



  23. Debbi Wellenstein on April 13, 2016 at 8:43 am

    Nobody told me what a lovely experience motherhood can be!



  24. nickie on April 13, 2016 at 7:45 am

    Your child will grow up fast and he really has. The time really flys by quickly.



  25. katherine on April 13, 2016 at 3:44 am

    It is here forever



  26. Denise S on April 12, 2016 at 12:15 pm

    I wish I had been warned about it ruining my body so much.
