Ilana Wiles is not a good mother. She's not a bad mother either. Like most of us, she's normal. From the creator of the wildly popular blog Mommy Shorts comes Ilana Wiles's first humor book on remarkably average parenting. If you want solid advice about raising kids, this book is not for you. If you want to wallow in your own misery about how having kids is AWFUL, this book is not for you. This book pays homage to the every-parent and suggests that they are the people having the best child-rearing experience of all. Using Wiles's signature infographics and photographs to illustrate her personal and hilarious essays on motherhood, the book is an honest guide that celebrates the fun of being a mom.

Love it! This is just what I needed to get me through the difficult and often frustrating process of raising a toddler while defending myself from the often contradictory and disempowering opinions of "experts". From one mom to another: Thank You!

As a new parent, I have gotten some excellent laughs out of this book. Much of the content hits very close to home, and also gives me a humorous look at what is to come over the next few years. I think that the closer you are as a parent to particular stages and ages of childhood, the funnier you will find them. If you are a parent and need a laugh, I highly suggest this.

As someone who hasn’t read Wiles’ blog, Mommy Shorts, I didn’t know what to expect. It was an easy read about the ups and downs of Wiles’ life as a mom of two kiddos, including all the difficulty and fun she has experienced. Some parts of the book weren’t as relatable to me as they might be to someone else, but overall it was an enjoyable read.
