Toddlers are A**holes: It's Not Your Fault

Do you have a toddler, know someone who does, or just know one in general? Then I'm so very sorry for you! 

One thing anyone who's ever been around a toddler knows is that they are a**holes. No really, they are. Think about everything that a toddler does. Now think about if you ran into an adult that did all this stuff. Wouldn't you consider them an a**hole? The only difference is they are miniature a**holes. A**holes in training, if you will.

Now, don't get me wrong, I love my kids. There are times when they are the sweetest thing on Earth and they make my boring life worth living. But lets be honest, there's a certain stage they reach in life where it's like they do everything they can to make you end up locked in the closet crying over a bottle of wine and an entire bag of miniature candy bars. 

This book was hilarious! I found myself agreeing with almost the entire thing. As a matter of fact, often times, when I would finally sit down to read after a tiresome day with my little A** hole (whom I love, don't get me wrong), I would end up reading a section of the book that happened to coincide with what my toddler had done that day. I wasn't sure if I should laugh or cry. I think I may have laugh-cried. You know, that thing you do when you laugh and cry at the same time and your husband looks at you like he's concerned for your mental health and the only solution is to stand in the corner of the room and throw chocolate at you. Kind of like feeding a bear. It could go either way.

If you are easily offended or can't take an "F" word here or there, first off, get the stick out of your butt and second, don't even bother with the book. If you have a good sense of humor and can relate, jump on in, it's a wild ride! 

Sure, there's a few typos, but you're not going to care because you'll be too busy laugh-crying. Or maybe we can call it the giggle sads? I don't know. At any rate, the part about how you're going to smell when dealing with a toddler had all my friends roaring with laughter. 

Most of them laughed because it was just funny to them that someone described it that way, while us parents of toddlers cried because it was on point. My mother-in-law was offended by the title alone, which made me want to leave it out and quote it every single time she stepped foot in my house so if anything else, this book is a great mother-in-law replant and that's the most important part!

You can find this, literally the most truthful book ever written, on AMAZON for $4.99 on Kindle or $7.99 for a paperback copy.
