parts had me laughing hysterically. i needed this kind of healthy laugh and common sense approach to child rearing. my only downside was the dads voice. i think they should choose voices carefully, that dad had a really comical rough voice, probably not so necessary given the content.

as if poker math wasn't hard enough, try following hands with just your ears. good practice for memory work but having trouble doing this while driving. really needs to be a book read.
