WATCH THE TRAILER

At last—the book that truly feels your pain…
Whether you’ve had a kid for decades or a few minutes, you know it can hurt— physically, emotionally, and, let’s just say it: like a motherf*&^%! In the vein of Go The F*ck To Sleep, this grown-up picture book parody of Edward Gorey’s classic The Gashlycrumb Tinies 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. Hurts Like a Mother will make you laugh so you don’t cry (or die).

"Jennifer Weiss and Lauren Franklin celebrate our transgressions in their new book... No matter what stage of motherhood you are surviving at the moment, Weiss and Franklin commiserate with you down memory lane or give you something to look forward to. Something that will be much funnier in retrospect."
