Parenting: Illustrated with Crappy Pictures

To learn more, watch my Unofficial Crappy Book Trailer that I made myself:

Actually that had nothing to do with the book. But did it seal the deal? It totally did, didn’t it?

If you are confused now, maybe the Official Crappy Book Trailer will explain things:

And this stuff is what is on the back of the book so you can pretend you are already holding it in your hands…

Of course you love being a parent. But sometimes, it just sucks. I know. I’m Amber Dusick and I started my blog Parenting: Illustrated with Crappy Pictures because I needed a place to vent about the funny (and frustrating) day-to-day things that happened to me as a parent. Turns out, poop is hilarious! At least when you’re not the one wiping it up.

This book won’t make your frustrating moments any less crappy. But these stories about my Crappy Baby, Crappy Boy and my husband, Crappy Papa, will hopefully make you laugh. Because you’re not alone. And sometimes the crappiest moments make the best memories. Parenting is wonderful! And also, well, you know.


“Amber Dusick has transformed the truest, grittiest, and most cringe-inducing trials of parenting into something incredibly hysterical, poignant and meaningful.” -Mayim Bialik, author of Beyond the Sling, actress Big Bang Theory

“If you are a parent, or even just have or know a parent, you will love this book. It’s seriously impossible NOT to. I dare you to try.”  -Jill Smokler, New York Times bestselling author of Confessions of a Scary Mommy 

Course this review is slightly crappy:

“The drawings aren’t very good, Mama.” -Crappy Boy, age 5
