Shari's rants are my inner ok, mostly outer dialogue. Has Shari been spying on me? 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!

I went back to work part time when my little man was 10 weeks old because the monotony of being at home day in and day out with a small baby was doing my head in after working in a demanding professional role for years and years and I needed that stimulation back in my life. Shari is a full-time Stay At Home Mum, and although I don't have anything against women who do this as it's a personal choice, it's not something I can relate to or ever have seen myself doing.

For some reason the stresses and insanely hard moments I encountered at home with my baby never really seemed so bad because I had my little escape at work to counter-balance it all. Also, I'm very lucky to have a very 'hands-on' husband who helped out with pretty much everything when our boy was first born. He still does now so I never felt that lonely, helpless or utterly frustrated as Shari obviously did because the responsibility was and still is always shared between us as much as possible.

I guess this essentially makes our life in general that much easier and makes us more of a team so the unpleasant bits are shared instead of just falling completely on my shoulders. I'm certainly not saying that my life has been perfect since having our boy, but I've never felt that I'm purely defined as just a 'mother' because I've managed to keep most of my previous outside interests as well as my career. I have a happy medium going on and this probably makes me not concentrate so much on all the downsides of having a baby like the author of this book does.

To me this book was a bit like 'Mother's Group' in written form. Considering I only lasted two sessions with my Mother's Group before I'd had enough of listening to the constant whingeing and complaining, this book definitely was not for me. If you are a mum who enjoys listening to another woman complain about everything there is to do with motherhood, you will thoroughly enjoy this book. If you think motherhood is just another life experience that is to be enjoyed and tackled like any other, you will probably be as disappointed with it as I was.

Tales from the Pantry: Random Rants & Musings of a Stay-At-Home Mom by Shari Owen Brown

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. The safe-haven at Target is totally relatable on any level, and I found her tone honest, and not bitter or complainative.

This book is not only for stay at home Mom's, but I think those of us who do "work" at home may enjoy it a bit more.

Actually any mother could enjoy this book and laugh right along with the authors little quirky stories. Brown captures those Motherly tales that we've all endured and she puts a funny spin on it.

I would not recommend this to mothers to be, simply because at the time the tales are NOT funny. But looking back, everything our little darlings do, will eventually be funny!!! This book is truly hilarious! If you're a mother, no matter what your age, you can identify with the author's line of thinking or know someone like her. It's funny because if you have lived through some or even one of the stages ,of infancy or childhood related by the author, you know exactly what she's feeling and going through.

The author could easily be your neighbor or best friend, or even yourself telling these tales. I really enjoyed this book. Although the writing obviously comes from a blog style writer meaning choppy sentences, emoticons, internet slang like LOL, things you don't typically see in a book. Once I got past that, I was able to truly enjoy the book and Shari's humor.

Some of her parenting ideas are great and I even found a few useful ones. Mostly it was just hilarious stories of her everyday life could be my everyday life although I tend to hide in the bathroom or bedroom with the door locked. I recommended it to all my mom friends with a sense of humor 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.

Got this as a Kindle Freebie after a bunch of ladies in one of my Goodreads 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 Got this as a Kindle Freebie after a bunch of ladies in one of my Goodreads groups raved about it.

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 have them. This book definitely made the case for not having them, although I do not think deliberately. Overall it was an easy and quick read, and it didn't cost me any money so it was worth my time for entertainment value. I laughed a couple of times for sure. Jan 31, Riley Vermilya rated it really liked it Shelves: 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 This book was chucked full of rants and sayings I use on a daily basis. Finally, in this day and age with gloom and doom lurking around every corner, it was quite refreshing to read a no nonsense book about being a Mom Thanks, for the laughs, Sheri Jan 16, Kara Thomas rated it really liked it.

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! Feb 13, Angie rated it liked it Shelves: 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. 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.

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 think any mother who is currently down in the trenches with small children can really appreciate this book. Has Shari been spying on me? Dec 20, Carisa Burns rated it it was amazing. Definitely funny, sarcastic humor which I like.

See a Problem?

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. Jul 10, Kelley rated it it was amazing.

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. Dec 09, Mary rated it liked it. 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.
