(89)Go to the Fu@k to Sleep by Adam Mansbach

Okay - be honest. Anyone who has had toddlers. Heck, anyone who has BABYSAT toddlers has likely had that moment where you are at your wits end. Your young charge has the whole procrastination thing perfected better than Congress. Well heck, lets include the tweens and teens who think they are "too old" for a bedtime. You want NOTHING more than for them to just GO the Fuck to Sleep.

I was at a party the other night and a Mom had this book. So we had an impromptu story time with only adults who had plenty of adult beverages in them. And I have never laughed so hard. Adam Mansbach has written the manifesto for parents and babysitters everywhere. His clever wit and absolute truisms makes Go the Fu@k to Sleep the book of the year. No, make that the book of the decade. If you have toddlers and are in desperate need of some comic relief, RUN, don't walk to pick up this book. You (and your toddler) will thank me.

ETA: In the hours since I first wrote & scheduled this post, Samuel L. Jackson has narrated the audio book version. For a short period of time you can get it from Audible for free.

Thank you!

If your sister has a sense of humor and doesn't mind liberal use of the "F" word - she will LOVE it!

I just saw the audio version w/ Samuel L Jackson on youtube. It's TOO FUNNY! Man am I glad I don't have kids.

LOL @ Sarah. I hear ya there.

Why I Read...

I remember the carefree summer days when I used to ride my bike to the public library to pick out new books. I would go almost daily to find books to read. I read to learn. I read to explore the world. I read to escape. I read because not reading is not an option.
