As a mom and a preschool teacher this thought has entered my head many a time. Samuel L Jackson is awesome except perhaps he doesn't ever sound exhausted enough. Great story and very giftable to other parents to shatter the image that everything is supposed to be pure and perfect
I enjoyed the short story, recalled many nights with my own kids that I 'thought' those words, and agreed that there couldn't have been a better reader for this one!!!
This is a terrible book that I had to turn off barely after starting. When I ordered it I thought the profanity would be blocked as it was in the title. Too bad because it is probably a good story. What is the purpose of the vile language??

This is a hilarious short "PG-13" bedtime story that I'm sure most parents (anxious to go to sleep themselves) of little children have thought while reading a story to put their children to sleep. Your inner voice in print, and who better than Samuel Jackson to narrate!!
"There must be some kind of way out of here.", said the Joker to the Thief.
I swear listening to this took me back to my childhood. At some point, Jackson's voice morphed into my father's. Most excellent.
I listened to this book at least five times. I still laugh at different parts. This was very witty and entertaining. If you are a parent, you will know exactly what they mean in the title. Well done. Well done indeed.
It made me chuckle a couple of times because it pegged some of my children's bed time antics. For those with out children, you can easily imagine the frustration of the parent of the child in the story. Samuel L. Jackson did a vary good job narrating and I wouldn't mind hearing more narrations by him. Now for the "but...", the cursing in the story bothered me more than I thought it would. Yes, I expected there to be some "F" bombs scattered through out the book. I did not expect them to occur in nearly every other sentence. I am glad that I got this book as a promo because I would have been disappointed, due to the cursing, if I had purchased it.
It is a funny book, but you will not want to play the audio version for your children.
