Potty-mouthed documents actual conversations one mom has had with her smalls. And while that may sound saccharine and self-congratulatory, it’s neither. It’s a collection of oofs and acks with a sprinkling of aahs, and it’s written the way kids talk. This is the book you give your friend who secretly agrees that kids are the meanest kind of truth tellers. This is the book you give your coworker who’s about to be a parent and who thinks it’s all unicorns and lollipops. This is the book you give those grownups who chose not to play the parenting game. It’s a chance for them to sit back and stroke their inner gloat. And, by the way, the illustrations are hilarious.
