That being said...This is a totally F-ing amazing book! It's real, overworked, frustrated beyond belief, about to loose your mind at 3am, inner parent monologue. I originally bought it for a friend who was having some serious issues getting her little one to sleep. She called me after one particularly rough night & thanked me profusely for giving her the book. I guess it's nice to know that you're not alone in your child's bedtime struggles. It may not actually be all your fault and you may have a relatively normal child & are not in fact a horrible parent. A little laughter, and vulgar support, can go an awfully long way. I've since given it as a gift many times. I plan on continuing to gift it as long as the people around me continue to not learn from the couple before them and keep having babies. Who then refuse to sleep. And so on & so forth.
*If you haven't already you MUST Google the celebrity reads of this book! Jennifer Garner & Samuel L. Jackson are laugh out loud funny. Samuel L. Jackson should narrate a book for every single stage of life, from being born to the grave. We'd come in & go out laughing! This book is one that will be shared from one exhausted, fed up, delusional, red eyed, sleep deprived parent to another. 'Cause sometimes all you can do is F-ing laugh. At yourself and at each other. Also, the pictures are really beautiful.
This is an ADULT children's book. I don't see anyone reading this to their child unless they were a baby and had no idea :-) I think it's an awesome book for adults, especially for those that have been in the same situations in the book.
The graphics were really cute as well. I look forward to more books like this :-)
i left this book at work for others to enjoy, and they did.
I recommend ceasing the reading of this book before age 2 when the parrot stage begins. No one wants the kid that yells the F bomb in the grocery store. This book is best suited for newborn to age 1, when you realize what a wonderful mistake you made by giving up sleep forever. You get angry, you read, you calm down, you laugh, you kiss your baby, and you wait for them to go the ... to sleep, but with a smile.
You can keep it for years to come when you finally understand most of the book to calm your nerves on those rough, sleepless nights.
This is irreverent, vulgar, and contains so many curse words. Still, for parents with kids who truly refuse to sleep for months on end like we were, this can add some humor into the otherwise desperate and unending pain of never getting enough sleep. Sometimes you just need to laugh at your pain to make it through the day
