More About Moms Who Drink and Swear by Nicole Knepper
 
 
 
Overview
If you feel like your kids are killing you, you've come to the right place.

Attention all potty-mouthed, cheap-wine-drinking mothers: Prepare to meet your match. Any bad thought you've had about your kids, Nicole Knepper has had worse. Much worse. It's not that she doesn't love her kids. It's that she understands what a mind-f*?% it can be to try to civilize those wild little beasts.

Based on her hugely popular Facebook page, "Moms Who Drink and Swear," this book reveals why family dinners are like herpes, how to avoid smashing toys that are being fought over, and the joy of hearing that your son has murdered his imaginary friend. As Nicole rants and raves about caring for children (without crushing their souls), family togetherness (without too many tears), the saving grace of girlfriends (and vodka), and love and marriage (and all the baggage that goes with them), she gets to the heart of what every exasperated mom is thinking, just much funnier.

Knepper offers a collection of mostly funny, often irreverent essays on the umbrella subject of how to drink, swear, laugh, and love one's way through motherhood. The collection—derived from her eponymous blog —stalls at the beginning with an over-long introduction and an unfortunate chapter rehashing tired male-female battle lines concerning all things menstrual. Because they're nothing we haven't read before, the sections dealing with PMS, men's view of female friendship (and anatomy), and daily household struggles on the lines of dinner prep don't showcase Knepper's real gift for witty observation. She hits her stride relating one-off incidents, and uses a spice rack of approaches to her sundry domestically-focused topics. The almost absurdist tone of "Focus Girl" feels forced whereas the chapters in which Knepper invokes her son's point-of-view and pens a manic letter on lice on behalf of Everyschool Elementary's principal prove some of her funniest. Overall, Knepper's is an entertaining collection that many a parent may enjoy over a glass of wine (after the kids are in bed). (Apr.)
