* That's what we should have called this book (or something close)!
Instead, we named it after the very successful blog: "Death By Children: I Had Kids So You Don't Have To!"
In any case...Seriously, this guy's funny.
Edgy, rude, self-deprecating and most importantly hilarious, this collection of blog posts and columns from award-winning, syndicated parenting humorist Christopher "Bull" Garlington serves as uproarious evidence that fatherhood is hard, often messy, and always life-altering work. Where other parenting memoirs focus only on the diaper years, "Death By Children" proves that a father's job only gets more complicated as children move into adolescence and prepare to leave the nest. Parents, and dads in particular, will have no trouble recognizing their own daily struggles in the humorous and engaging anecdotes gathered in this book, including favorites "F-Bomb Report," "Pauseaholics," "How To Fold Your Daughter's Thong," and "Raised by Google."
