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. 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.One of my favorites was this one. Hurts Like a Mother will make you laugh so you don’t cry (or die).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!
