Sh*t My Kids Ruined

An A-Z Celebration of Kid-Destruction

Julie Haas Brophy


List Price: 14.00*
* Individual store prices may vary.


A pictorial tribute to the filthy, distasteful, gross, and painful moments of parenthood, and the children who make it all possible.
Kids: they are the light of your life—and the enemy of all things fragile, intact, and clean. But why cry over spilt milk . . . or paint . . . or the entire contents of a full-size swimming pool? A testament to the messiness of childhood (and parenting), and a memorial to the household items that perished along the way, here are never-before-seen photos and outrageous stories of VCRs jammed with toys, toilets clogged with clothes, and furniture accented with permanent marker. Torn-up computer keyboards and torn-out hair, botched family photos and mustard-covered treadmills—nothing is off limits to your darling, destructive offspring. So raise a broken glass and embrace the madness, because laughter is the only surefire way to keep your sh*t together.
