Reviews

"This is by far the funniest book I've ever read about parenting. If you have a child, you will die laughing. If you are childfree, you will laugh your ass off at everything you avoided by sticking to your guns about the true meaning of freedom."
--Chelsea Handler, New York Times bestselling author of Life Will Be the Death of Me... and You Too!
"The only guide to motherhood after the apocalypse you'll ever need. Deeply, darkly funny."
--Ali Wong, New York Times bestselling author of Dear Girls
"In this irreverent debut... no topic is off-limits; Leggero bares all about 'geriatric pregnancy, ' breastfeeding, parental anxiety, and her conversion to 'Jew-by-choice'... this will induce grins from stand-up fans who've been missing shows because they can't get a babysitter."
--Publishers Weekly
"[Natasha's] essays shine with wit and warmth, turning an irreverent eye toward what the future may hold for the global warming generation." --Washington Post
"Ironically--as Natasha hated breast feeding--this book is mother's milk for mothers."
--Chelsea Peretti, comedian, actor, director
"Riotously funny.... a consistently uproarious look at the rocky roads that often line early motherhood as well as the moments that (hopefully) make it all worthwhile." --The San Francisco Chronicle
"A humorous assessment of parenting [that] will resonate with a wide variety of readers, including breastfeeding and pandemic-era parenting, though she satirically skewers just about everything else with gleeful abandon... Leggero's snark comes fast and furious throughout biting quips about nannies and the terror of having her elderly parents babysit...Overall, she achieves a commendable balance among practical advice, wry commentary, and over-the-top offensiveness... The benefits and headaches of later-life motherhood from a candid, often hilarious comedic mind."--Kirkus Reviews
