    1. I am not at all interested in finishing this book. I am very surprised that so many people love this book. I feel like she has complained for the majority of the first 42% of the book. I can't take it anymore. I typically don't write negative reviews, and definitely not for free books or memoirs, but I just really can't believe so many mothers enjoyed this. She is so negative and even mean at times. Don't get me wrong, I am a stay at home mom and my daughter drives me absolutely nuts sometimes. [...]


    2. I started off really wanting to like this book because I'd heard so many positive things about it and read a lot of reviews where women said they literally laughed out loud while reading it. Unfortunately, I just didn't feel the same connection to this book when I was reading it. Don't get me wrong, it certainly had some funny bits and some 'yep, been there!' bits, but I just wasn't that enthralled with reading about some other woman's trials and tribulations while she brought up her two young c [...]


    3. I feel a little guilty marking this book as 'read' when I didn't make it through the first third of the book, but I'm doing it anyway. Think of it as combat pay. I don't know what annoyed me more: the author's incessant use of capital letters and exclamation points or her gushing gee-whiz-isn't-parenting-so-hard-and-aren't-I so-dang-funny tone. Both made me physically nauseated. Do yourself a favor and skip this book.


    4. If you are a mother, grandmother, aunt,childcare worker - anyone who spends time with kids, RUN don't walk to get this book! I entered the giveaway here on for this book with the idea of handing it on to my daughter who has a two-year-old daughter of her own. Glad I read it first because it is hilarious! You will find yourself in these pages more than once. I know I did, as a grandma, and those memories of when my own kids were little are still close at hand! I thoroughly enjoyed this book and [...]



    5. With her brutal honesty, Shari Owen Brown takes her readers on the non-stop, often terrifying roller coaster ride that is motherhood. I myself am not a mother as of yet, but I have several friends with children and I know for a fact that the majority of the author's hilarious observations are spot on. I found myself laughing out loud on more than one occasion and I found myself genuinely sad when I reached the last page of this diary/blog-style novel. I can't wait to read more from Ms. Brown!


    6. This book was horrible. I didn't think it was funny and the author drove me crazy with all her complaints. Maybe there should be a warning that if you have kids the same age as those being complained about you shouldn't read it. The only story that I found funny was the poop story and that was possibly because I thought it happened to the most deserving mother ever.


    7. LOVED this book! Shari doesn't hesitate to tell you all out motherhood, and I mean the real thing not just the warm and fuzzy parts. Any mother will relate and be relieved that these types of situations happen to others.


    8. Found myself nodding and laughing throughout this book. She really nailed being a stay at home mom or any mom for that matter.





    9. Literally LOL'd more than once. Great book and so true. Every mother has her moments whether she admits it or not!




    10. Got this as a Kindle Freebie after a bunch of ladies in one of my groups raved about it. Now I'm really wondering why I would choose to read it. It goes into enormous detail on what its like to be a stay at home mom of two young children. It seems mostly written as a bit of a personal rant for the author and maybe as validation to the other moms out there who know what a hard job it is.I have to mention, I do not have kids and have been on the fence for awhile now as to whether I ever want to h [...]


    11. This book was chucked full of rants and sayings I use on a daily basis. It was almost scary reading this book. It was like looking at myself in a mirror and I found myself thinking I should write MY book! I loved Shari's sarcasm, tell it like it is approach with extreme laugh out loud moments. I thought everyone at Starbucks was going to Shhhhhhh me. And quite frankly, like the author, I did NOT care! Finally, in this day and age with gloom and doom lurking around every corner, it was quite refr [...]


    12. I am so glad that this book came out free for a limited time. I really enjoyed it. It was good to see that you aren't the only mother in these situations. I give only four stars because I would have preferred that she occasionally muse over some of the better parts of being a stay at home mom rather than just at the end of the book. I would recommend it to all my mom friends who are in that frustrated place. I think her take on teenagers would be hilarious to read!


    13. This was pretty good. There were times when I kind of rolled my eyes - the rantings got a little old and a few times I thought she was pretty condescending to mothers who aren't absolutely frustrated with their kids. Like if you're not fed-up, you're not doing it right Maybe that's true, but it came off as arrogant to me. There were some really amazing quotes, liked "Boy - n. noise with dirt on it" That was funny :)


    14. This is a GREAT book for any mom out there. I found myself nodding my head in agreement with MANY things that Shari wrote about. It made me feel like I am not alone. It is a great book for moms because you don't have to read it in one sitting. You can pick it up and read a few pages and when you are interrupted by thing 1 or thing 2, or your book mark is pulled out for the 10th time, it is OK.I laughed out loud many times.


    15. This book was OK. I think she's pretty funny and I liked some of the creative child rearing ideas she came up with , but I would love to see how she would deal with Atypical children. I had a hard time relating to some of her normal problems, but probably, if you are a stay at home mom of children without issues like ADHD, Aspergers, Hearing Loss, or Down's Syndrome, you will find this book absolutely hilarious.


    16. Tales from the Pantry is a very funny read. It’s the real story of parenting small children and how most mothers are at the edge of insanity at any given moment. I think any mother who is currently down in the trenches with small children can really appreciate this book. Shari’s rants are my inner (ok, mostly outer) dialogue. I found myself nodding as I read and thinking ‘How does she know? Has Shari been spying on me?’


    17. Definitely funny, sarcastic humor which I like. I think I highlighted about 10 passages that made me laugh because I could relate with my insane stay-at-home-mom life with my own kids. It's a quick read. I read it in about 2 hours so for those moms out there who just want something easy and funny to read, get your pantry keys and a book light and go to town. haha


    18. Hilarious is probably the only word to describe this book. Anyone who's had kids, thought about having kids, or been around someone who has kids should read this book. A funny, real look at motherhood, parenting, and what these moments we're supposed to be savoring are really like. I can't wait to see what Shari comes up with next.


    19. Funny, light read. Written along the lines as she might chat with a girlfriend. I see some recent low ratings but I do believe that some readers may be taking her musing too much to heart and not just enjoying as they were meant to be, in looking at motherhood of small children in a humorous way.


    20. This really is a MUST read for any mothers out there! Especially those who think that they are the worst mothers in the world, because you're not. This book only puts in to words what we all think and it is a great little read!! Struggled towards the end as it seemed to steer away from Motherhood, but cute nonetheless!


    21. Funny, and for real. She tells the hard truth that many many mothers wouldn't dare. Stay-at-home moms will be able to relate most, but a working mom would enjoy it just as much. Every mother should have a pantry to escape to. Wish I did. Thanks for sharing Shari. Looking forward to more. :)


    22. Some parts were funny and easy to relate to, but for the most part I got tired of here complaining. She's a stay at home mom. Try being a working mom and then having to come home to kids, sleepless nights, and overall craziness. It's exhausting.


    23. I was only mildly amused by this book. Didn't quite get the referral to the "#" comments, but that's fine. I felt as though the book describes a chapter I've been through, and it was a long time ago.


    24. I won this book from Good Reads. Although I do not have children of my own, some of the rants in this book I think just about anyone can nod there head and agree with. Super cute book that gave me some laughs!
