Karen Alpert

Karen Alpert is the ridiculously hairy, self-deprecating writer of the blog Baby Sideburns and her Facebook page which currently has almost 250,000 followers. If you’re tired of seeing moms who post pictures of their perfect, smiling, well-behaved kiddos on social media, Baby Sideburns shows the “other” side of parenting – the messy, scary, painful, difficult, unpredictable side. In other words, reality. In the Fall of 2013 Karen Alpert wrote and self-published her first book, I Heart My Little A-Holes, which made it to the New York Times best seller list and the Top 100 on Amazon the first week it was out. It was then bought by HarperCollins and made it to both lists again when it was rereleased in April of 2014. She lives with her two amazing kiddos and a very forgiving husband who lets her publicly share their crazy lives on the Internet every day.

This is the story of their (currently Tampa, FL) life. Enjoy the Story of This Life.
