Good books: Lighthearted musings on parenting

September 5, 2013

I realized that my (increasingly infrequent) posts have all been about parenting lately. Maybe it’s because my parenting duties are about to double in a few short months. Mommy-hood on the brain.

My most recent bedside read has also been about parenting. It’s a series of funny and lighthearted mini-essays by the comedian, Jim Gaffigan, called Dad is Fat. Gaffigan’s stories are incredibly relatable, even though his parenting experience is unique. He has five children and lives in a two bedroom walkup apartment in Manhattan. The essay about how they manage to cram all those people into the two bedrooms is fascinating (and makes me feel that our three bedroom house is palatial, even with the upcoming loss of a guest room.)

It’s a fun, light read that made me laugh.

Gaffigan and his five little kids hanging in one bed. Not an uncommon situation, according to Dad Is Fat.
