Summary
Comedian Gaffigan expresses all the joys--and horrors--of life with five young children. From cousins ("celebrities for little kids") to toddlers' communication skills ("they always sound like they have traveled by horseback for hours to deliver important news"), to the eating habits of four-year-olds ("there is no difference between a four year old eating a taco and throwing a taco on the floor"). Sharply observed, explosively funny, and a cry for help from a man who has realized he and his wife are outnumbered in their own home.
Summary
The popular comedian shares his misadventures as an unlikely father of five, from his formative years in a large Irish-Catholic family, to his middle-of-the-night diaper-changing foibles, to his struggles to lull tyrannical tots to sleep
