Introduction: The Real Pain of Parenthood

Being a mom is no easy task. It's not just about pushing something giant through your hooha (sorry, but that's the reality). In fact, the most painful part of motherhood is having a real live child. If you're the type of parent who meticulously shapes your kiddo's organic quinoa into reproductions of the Mona Lisa or stays up past midnight creating posters for your PTO presidential campaign, then this book is probably not for you. And if you're the kind of parent who looks down on those who have Domino's pizza on speed dial, then you definitely shouldn't listen to this book.

Embracing Imperfection

But if, like many of us, you find yourself going absolutely ballistic on your rugrats every morning just because they won't put their shoes on, and then feeling horribly guilty about it all day, this book is a must-listen. Karen Alpert, the witty and relatable author, celebrates the beauty of mediocrity in parenting and highlights just how awesome and loved mediocre parents are by their children.

Honest and Hilarious

In I Want My Epidural Back, Karen Alpert shares her honest and hilarious observations, stories, and quips about parenting. Her relatable anecdotes will have you nodding your head in agreement and laughing until you pee in your pants (or on the toilet, if you have the foresight to listen to it there!). Alpert touches on those everyday moments that all parents experience, from the chaotic mornings to the guilt-ridden moments that keep us up at night.

Mediocrity is the New Excellence

This audiobook is a refreshing break from the usual pressure placed on parents to be perfect and have it all figured out. Alpert's message is clear: it's okay to have frozen pizzas in your freezer and take your kids to McDonald's for a special treat. It's okay to have those moments of frustration and imperfection. In fact, it's what makes you a real parent, and your kids love you all the more for it.
