In Dad is Fat, stand-up comedian Jim Gaffigan, who’s best known for his legendary riffs on Hot Pockets, bacon, manatees, and McDonald's, expresses all the joys and horrors of life with five young children - everything 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"). Reminiscent of Bill Cosby’s Fatherhood, Dad is Fat is 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.

Great observational humor. Love the autobiographical perspective. Fun. I can imagine this family in NYC.
I could relate to a lot of it. I understand when your children are young, all the things you think of. How difficult it is and how much you miss it later..... really cool book
amazing books for new parents and parents of all ages it gives you a hilarious look into the funny and annoying parts of parenting that we can all find a way to laugh at I would listen to this 10 times more my husband even loved it too
So... Aside from mentioning how parents lie about Santa Clause, this is a great family listen. I listened by myself first and later with the kids. Listening with them made it so much funnier. I love Jim Gaffigan and I recommend this funny book.
Very funny expanding on the joys and stresses of parenting...especially in NYC
Jim is a riot. Love his sense of humor.
I love his words of wisdom... If you think getting a dog is preparation for having children, think again.
Loved the book and his sense of humor.
This is a brief look at parenting through someone else's eyes and realizing their view is almost identical to yours... For some reason I'm now craving Hot Pockets...
