I am immortal ....so far. I enjoy a god story and love a great narrator. :-)
I enjoyed this but am a Gaffigan fan so .....my opinion review shouldnt really count. :-)

...but I don't, so it just seemed like a long list of all the reasons why I don't. And an homage to his wife, who is apparently perfect. There were a few lines that made me smile (not so much laugh out loud though), but overall I expected something funnier from Gaffigan as I'm a big fan of his comedy.
OK, I will admit - I love Jim Gaffigan and have seen him in concert. There are parts of this book that are just laugh out loud funny - and I don't even have kids. A great, light listen.
This is a cautionary tale about pro-creating beyond one’s means. The author describes the mundane life of raising five young children. It’s mostly boring, at times depressing, and not funny.
There is nothing funny or original in this book. I was going to stop listening but felt guilty so I ran the speed up to 2x and got through it. Don't waste your time.
This is one of those books that is funny because you can see your own family and friends in the characters. Worth listening to but you may want to save it for a pick me up on a bad day or to prevent road rage. It's hard to be angry when you are in the car alone laughing out loud! Well done
I just could not appreciate this work. Perhaps I was biased based on my liking of Jim's stand-up performances...HOT POCKETS...but this audible platform just didn't transpose into gut wrenching laughter for me!
i have always enjoyed Jim's comedian talent. it's been a good entertaining book to listen but didn't quite meet my expectations for jim.
I totally agree with Jim's parenting approach and I'm very much the same with my kids.
Listening to this book is like listening to a 5 hour stand up routine about parenting. It's the perfect "break" from the every day routine and made me appreciate the small things about being a parent.
I'm not one to laugh out loud often or easily but this book had me doing both.
Sometimes books feel like they're never going to end, this one ended too soon. I'm ready for the sequel "Dad is Fatter".
You get to see the origin of his work, from single life to family life.
Kids being kids and the work that comes with them.
To look for the moments in life and not take pictures of it.
