  • this is the people-version of dog shaming!birth control for everyone!!!!this is my new favorite book. science has proven that children are just tiny demons who have transgressed in the underworld and have been sent to earth for punishment. and they respond to this by being engines of destruction while they are here. i mean - sheesh - dumping glitter in the washing machine, pepper in the fishbowl, drawing penises on the - wait, okay, some of these things i have done so that makes them funny, but [...]

  • This book, while providing some moderate humor, can be summed up as:1) Things kids do when parents fail at supervision.*2) Poop everywhereRDICT: 2.9 stars. Also doubles as cheap birth control.* Ok, ok, some kids can do damage in the time it takes you to blink.  Lessons learned: If you refuse to supervise your kids, you should invest in locks for, well, everything. Also, to keep your blood pressure under control: rid home of all Sharpies, spray paint, glitter. and children.

  • An entertaining coffee table book. I fear that, as a parent of two young children, I could relate to more than one instance of destruction depicted within its pages. I had a good laugh here and there, and I think that it’s appropriately advertised as birth control. And I realize it’s sort of cheating to count this toward my yearly reading challenge. And, since I read the little volume while standing at a display table in Borders, it is also, my husband would assure me, stealing.

  • Ah, kids. I'm pretty sure one of the reasons God, in is infinite wisdom, made them so cute is in fact to ensure their own safety :)

  • Super funny, although it makes me dread the "mobile years" just a little. ;) Thanks for the pass-along, Gillian!

  • Very entertaining! I have pictures of my girls in some of the same situations. Paint, soap, marker, baking soda, glitter, makeup the list could go on and on!

  • While reading this book, I was kind of glad I don't have kids. The book is formatted using the A-B-Cs. For each letter of the alphabet, there are things that kids have ruined. The pictures bring a whole new life to the words. You can say that your child ruined the t.v, but that doesn't have the same impact as a picture showing the t.v. utterly destroyed.If you are thinking about having kids, this might not be the best book to read. You may end up with nightmare and start questioning your decisio [...]

  • I not only read this book - I'm in it! Well, the wallpaper my younger child ruined is. Cute and funny, if insubstantial. A good gift for a new parent or one trying to recover from catastrophic kid damage to their stuff.

  • Hilariously naughty and an EXCELLENT form of birth control for those of us who aren't quite ready for kids. A really fun, quick read.

  • As a parent I did find this entertaining. But to be honest I do not think it warranted a book - the blog site would have been fine.

  • You don't know how relieved I was to see that other people's kids wreak havoc at home too. I'm not the only parent who doesn't always adequately supervise her destructive children!!! I also took great glee in making my husband look at some of the pictures. He would moan that he couldn't bear to look at another picture of child-generated chaos, but then he would laugh. Yes, misery loves company, and so we laugh at the pictures of other parents' pain. I also appreciated the parenting and cleaning [...]

  • Like most artsy mamas, Julie Haas Brophy enjoys her time alone crafting and creating. In anticipation for mommy-time, Julie left some art supplies out so she could jump in and create as soon as her boys were off to school. You know where this is going the boys created a masterpiece on her carpet and as a result, Sh*t My Kids Ruined (SMKR) was born. This book is a compilation of photos submitted by numerous parents, caregivers, grandparents, educators etc. Some of the photos are funny while other [...]

  • Absolutely hysterical!! This book is full of pictures and quotes of all of those little "oops" moments in a parent's life. No parent is perfect and no child an angel 100% of the time. It only takes turning your back for 30 seconds to learn the destruction of one child "disaster on foot" might be better. If you are a parent, you could for sure relate to the pain and hysteria these families were feeling as they discovered these trademark moments in their child's life. If you are not yet a parent t [...]

  • I found this book at my local Thrift Store, so I decided to pick it up since I had had it on my To-Read list in the past.It was a cute book, made me laugh a couple of times. It's really crazy the things some kids do. Definitely would pick this up if you were thinking about having kids, as it is one of those "The things they don't tell you about having children" books, to make sure you are prepared.Overall a nice little book, probably wouldn't pay $15 for it though.

  • I was laughing so hard, my husband had to come see what was going on. I don't know if it was funny because it brought back memories, or because I was glad none of those were my kids. Although, admittedly we had our share of mishaps. AndI have to confess to hoping that our own children have at least some of the same sort of stuff happen to them, that they caused to happen to us.Ms. Brophy, thanks, I needed a laugh like that!

  • This book was freaking hilarious, I was laughing my ass off!! For those of us who have kids, we can completely relate. For those of you who don't have kids, check this book out first, you might reconsider! The pictures were great as well as the hints and quotes scattered throughout. I thank God everyday my daughter hasn't been this naughty! I happened to get this copy first from the library, so the smell of a fresh, new book and lots of laughs this definitely gets the full 5 stars!

  • This book was given to me as a birthday gift from a friend at work, to "welcome" me to the land of motherhood. It's a pretty horrific book in the scope of destruction. It is also hilarious and I have said several prayers, in the hopes that almost none of those pictures happen to us! However, I know better. This book felt like a humble preview of some storms that might be coming our way in the next few years.

  • VERY quick read, if you can call it a read. Besides the forward and acknowledgments it was basically like reading the blog (pictures with captions and parent tips thrown into the mix). Having said all of that, I laughed my ass off. It was a nice easy break from some of the deep stuff I have been reading.

  • What parent cant look at these pictures and either so relate or grateful it didn't happen to them!!! Each page is a picture of some type of parents worse nightmare (several involve poop!)and then there is a brief commentary under the picture. Some are real funny and some are a nightmare to look at!

  • If you are a parent you will probably enjoy this very short, picture book. Some of the photos are hilarious! Some are disgusting. Some are lame. Some will make you glad it hasn't happened to you! The author published the book after having her own "ruined experience" (but certainly not the first)on 03/02/10.

  • Not the greatest. Yeah, a lot of them are funny. Working with children and living with a significantly younger brother have put all of this in perspective. It was all funny, yes, but not worthy of reading again for me.

  • Some good friends gave me this book for my birthday. I read it in one sitting, lots of fun pictures and "Oh no!"s coming from me while I read. Also lots of judgment for apparently negligent parents! ha!

  • Anyone who has kids or has ever been a care-take of children (nannies, babysitters, teachers, etc.) will groan and laugh at the destruction in this book. For those so far ignorant and unsure if they want children, this book may well serve as birth control.

  • Totally hilarious and scary at the same time. If you have had kids you will relate to the pictures in this book of the mayhem that children can cause in just a few minutes. If you haven't had kids yet, you may decide not to if you read this. ;-)

  • very funny depiction of life with children; two minutes alone with a sharpie = irreversible damage. for every time you look at other people's kids and say "oh how sweet", there's a "holy shit, what were we thinking!" moment on their part

  • One of the better blogs turned books I have encountered. Really great as a birth control method, coz now I'm scared shitless to have kids otherwise they will ruin my stuffLOL :)!Fun and quick read!

  • You don't really read this one, it has an introduction and then pictures with captions and other random quotes. Excellent for a laugh, but at the same time, these are somber warnings for new or expectant parents. In fact, this should be required reading at the hospital.

  • I laughed or winced at every picture. My 3 year old kept asking what I was laughing at and I would show her the picture and she would laugh too. At these times in life when something gets ruined you just have to laugh and than take a picture and post it to the internet.
