I’m going to use this space to promote my friend Clint Edwards and his new book – Father-ish: Laugh-Out-Loud Tales From a Dad Trying Not to Ruin His Kids’ Lives.
Clint Edwards equates fatherhood to the time he did an important live TV interview from home: To the viewers, he looked put-together in a nice button-up shirt . . . but below the camera he wasn’t wearing any pants. And it may have looked like he was in a nice office, but he was in fact hidden in his bedroom closet because his whole house was too messy to show.
This highly relatable collection gets to the heart of parenting: all those unexpected fails, awkward conversations, and well-intentioned little white lies.
Clint chronicles all these things and more with stories like “The Time My Son Realized I Was Santa,” “I’ve Never Been to Hell, but I Have Been to a Little Girl’s Birthday Party,” and “How to Get the Sex Talk Very, Very Wrong.”
And with each story you’ll see over and over again that there really aren’t any rules when it comes to parenting, and all you can do is try your best.
I’m almost done reading this book and it’s hilarious.
Grab yourself a copy and support a friend of ours.
Ok, now here are some of the funniest parenting tweets and memes from parents this week.
I’m still wearing the T-shirt I slept in last night cause I haven’t had enough coffee you judgmental fuckwaffles.

My son just tripped and fell down 10+ outdoor steps like a slinky, lost both of his shoes in the tumble, screamed bloody murder for 2 seconds before he demanded cake. This is called a long con and I respect it.

Probability tells you that a toddler has a 50-50 chance of putting their shoes on the correct feet. Parenting tells you otherwise.

My favorite part of the day is when I fall asleep watching tv at 9:30 and then wake up at 11:30, wide awake. This is what all you young people have to look forward to.
