Summary : Amateur Hour: Motherhood in Essays and Swear Words (Unabridged)

An emotionally honest, arresting, and funny collection of essays about motherhood and adulthood....

"Being a mother is a gift."

Where’s my receipt?

Welcome to essayist Kimberly Harrington’s poetic and funny world of motherhood, womanhood, and humanhood, not necessarily in that order. It’s a place of loud parenting, fierce loving, too much social media, and occasional inner monologues where timeless debates are resolved such as Pro/Con: Caving to PTO Bake Sale Pressure (“Pro: Skim the crappiest brownies for myself. Con: They’re really crappy.”) 

With accessibility and wit, she captures the emotions around parenthood in artful and earnest ways, highlighting this time in the middle - midlife, the middle years of childhood, how women are stuck in the middle of so much. It’s a place of elation, exhaustion, and time whipping past at warp speed. Finally, it’s a quiet space to consider the girl you were, the mother you are, and the woman you are always becoming.
