Karen Alpert knows that when your son wakes you up at 3:00 AM because he wants to watch TV, he's an a-hole. When your daughter outlines every corner of your living room with a purple crayon, she's an a-hole. And when your rug rats purposely decorate the kitchen ceiling with their smoothies, they're a-holes.
Thankfully for parents everywhere, Alpert is not afraid to say it-whether on her blog Baby Sideburns, which draws anywhere from 150,000 to over a million unique visitors per month; her accompanying Facebook page, which has over 142,000 fans; or her Kickstarter-funded debut book, I Heart My Little A-Holes, self-published at the end of 2013 and is already a New York Times bestseller.
Filled with hilarious stories and off-the-cuff reflections on motherhood, this book is exactly what harried parents are looking for. It's no surprise that the book has quickly become a cultural phenomenon, not only hitting the list but garnering 265 five-star reviews on Amazon and sustaining an incredibly active Facebook page (over 12k Australian visitors). Now, Alpert is partnering with us in order to build upon the book's success and reach an even wider audience, reaching not only Alpert's tried and true fans but tens of thousands of readers who haven't even heard of Baby Sideburns. Yet.
