Becoming a dad changes everything. It definitely takes a sense of humor to deal with all the insanity and suddenly becoming "uncool". This funny book will remind you you're not alone. It's full of very entertaining well-written stories. Take some time for yourself and enjoy it.

The stories here about Dave Schwenson's fatherhood will make you see yourself and your children too. The book is a compilation of columns written for a newspaper in Northern Ohio. It is both funny, and heartwarming.

The author got the right amount of laughter with the perils of becoming/being a dad. The easy style made it a quick read but had a lot of heart that sticks with you afterward.

Loved the book. Reads like Cosby without the noteriety. Great humor on fatherhood and parenting, a role he surely takes seriously. He proves it's ok to laugh at ourselves as we try to be the perfect parent. Fun read!
