OK let me set the stage and clear up a few things. I am not the biggest fan of Jim Gaffigan’s stand up. I know lots of people are but I am not one of them. I went out on a limb to read this book.
Gaffigan is a father of 5 children. At the time of this book, he and his wife and the 5 kids all lived in a 2 bedroom apartment. Gaffigan being a comedian does a great job of observing silly things we do and talking about them. This book has all kinds of little antidotes on child rearing. Some are over the top funny. He talks about getting fat because even though when they went out to dinner he got a salad his 3-year old didn’t eat a half of plate of fries, so he just can’t let them go to waste.
