Things I’ve Said to My Children by Nathan Ripperger. Published by Ten Speed

Children do not come with a manual. Even if you have a dozen siblings, two dozen nieces and nephews and 200 friends with children, you have no idea what you’re in for until you have your own. Nathan has 5 children under the age of 10. Dear god, man, if you weren’t insane before, you certainly must be now! Being a parent is hands down, the hardest job in the world. Running the U.N. is a piece of cake in comparison to potty training. Any parent will find the strange phrases in this book all too familiar – “Why is there a toilet seat on the coffee table?”  and “Don’t eat the goldfish crackers after you put them in your butt.” This is parent speak, a strange language known only to the tribe of idiots who have decided to procreate. Lord help us all!
