Here is, in no particular order, a short list of gifts I'm getting my wife, and the reasoning behind each.
These are the gifts I got her that actually reference her being pregnant. For other ideas...
Soooooo. There’s a “good” children’s book, that’s more for you the parent.
Go the F**k to Sleep
There’s three in the series, and they bring some humor to everyday patent struggles! We love them!
This is my go-to.
I also have "You Have To Fucking Eat," but that's not a problem for my kiddo currently. Maybe I'll write a children's book called "Give The Boob A Break Every Once In A While."
at night, after the sun goes down, when it is time for him to sleep, we very much enjoy reading our copy of Go the F&%k to Sleep.
he's only four months old. it's appropriate.
I think he’s ready for this children’s bedtime classic:
Go the F**ck to Sleep
ETA: Which is a real book in case anyone didn’t know
There’s an audiobook version narrated by Samuel L Jackson. Not kidding.
Ah, another classic to read after https://www.amazon.com/dp/1617750255/ref=cm_sw_r_cp_awdb_imm_49HRXQ74CT83CP0RPWH4
Sure kids books are great but have you seen this: https://www.amazon.ca/Go-F-Sleep-Adam-Mansbach/dp/1617750255/ref=mp_s_a_1_1?dchild=1&keywords=go+the+f+to+sleep&qid=1626472224&sr=8-1
Thanks for the chance!
This one is really good
Have you read this book? ;D
its not for kids, its a book for adults, similar to "go the fuck to sleep"
Du er ikke alene:
They're both real children's books here in the US too.
Go the F**k to Sleep https://www.amazon.com/dp/1617750255/ref=cm_sw_r_apan_i_C1ZCF6FFBE34CMTYF0PH
You Have to F*****g Eat https://www.amazon.com/dp/1617753785/ref=cm_sw_r_apan_i_CSR31HXKS8WVMD40XD96
And this one you should relate to because there are kangaroos on the cover...
Fuck, Now There Are Two of You https://www.amazon.com/dp/1786899485/ref=cm_sw_r_apan_i_D2S721JF23HCGKMCM9M7

I think you should read this book
Did you try reading them this?? Lol
A friend of mine gave me this when I was pregnant, it’s at least good for a laugh
I'm not good at roommates. Being roommates has ruined friendships. Somehow sleeping on someone's couch is fine but being roommates with them wrecks everything.
I was gonna say I'm tired. But when am I not tired. I forgot my afternoon coffee so I guess it's gonna be time for evening coffee. Which will probably make me yawn.
I ended up not going to the funeral. I would only be there for the rosary and I don't know anything about the rosary plus I'm super atheist. So that's just weird. Also, my dad works there so I figured best be safe and not go.
At work I trained one of the new guys. He's young. 20. He's almost got his bachelors. I got my AA when I was 20 and then went to work. He's a cool kid. Wants to be a park ranger at a national park. Hell yeah. I feel like I made myself sound like an antisocial weirdo. I told him I want a lion and a bear to guard my house so that people won't come to my door. And that the worst part about school was the other people. So I guess i sound like I hate people. The security guard asked me about watching some TV show (or maybe he just asked about tv in general I can't remember) and I was like uhhh. If it's a popular show chances are high that I haven't seen it. And then he wanted to talk about "my" truck and how that type of truck is a good reliable truck. I was also like uhhhh about that. Idk dude its not actually my truck and makes so many sounds (creaking, squeaks and stuff) and I bounce around all over the fuckin place because our roads are awful and the truck's shocks are awful. Bounce bounce bounce creak creak creak. That and the cd player doesn't work which is like the most important thing to me beside getting me places. I'm not saying I hate the truck, I'm very incredibly thankful for it. But I cannot attest to its greatness at the moment. Maybe if the roads get fixed.
I am currently about to lose my patience with Bub. He needs to go to bed so that I can get a break because I'm fucking tired. But he keeps stalling. "I have to do this. I have to do that. Let me ask you 15 questions about popcorn" goddamn it go the fuck to sleep.
Alright, gonna go lay down with Bub now. I didn't leave his room on the best terms so I feel guilty. I don't have patience for any of this shit right now. .
> getting these fucking kids to go to sleep
You'll appreciate this
Yep. That's already a thing. https://smile.amazon.com/dp/1617750255/ref=cm_sw_r_cp_apa_fabc_nxocGb2BP73YP
As a mom who was equally pragmatic about her pregnancy -- at the anatomy scan, I made halloween skeleton decoration jokes instead of being all excited about the tech finding my fetus's penis, she was very upset with me -- I would recommend Emily Oster's books. She and her husband are behavioral economists, and so their approach a lot of the fluffy "recommendations" and "averages" people tell soon-to-be and new parents was to look at studies to find whatever data they could to support it.
Here's her Amazon page, you'll want copies of both "Expecting better" -- her pregnancy book -- and "Cribsheet" -- her early parenting book. They've reassured both my husband and me about what's actually good precautions and what's just hysteria, and I've referenced Cribsheet at least twice more since actually giving birth. You can also back your wife's and your decisions up with real studies and data when people decide to offer advice you didn't ask for that runs counter to what you want to do.
I'd also recommend the parenting classes the hospital should offer new parents, for everything from how labor will go to new parent awareness. Some of it feels really dumb and sentimental, but some was good reminders and stuff I never thought about -- like how cleaner looks like juice to little kids. (Also, fetuses are swimming in their own pee in the womb.)
Finally, we were gifted an encyclopedia-esque book aimed for fathers at my baby shower. I'll look up the title at home -- my very reserved husband has enjoyed reading it for what's to come type stuff.
PS: You'll want a copy of this book for bedtime, especially when he's little, and Shel Silverstein poetry is much better than any children's book to read at nighttime when they're too little to pay attention to the pictures. All the docs want out of reading to your kids is just talking to them... all the time... so read something you like.
Btw here is the product
Always worth recommending:
Not much romance though, sorry.
Let's start buying these dudes copies of this: Go the F**k to Sleep https://www.amazon.com/dp/1617750255/
An I thought it was the book by Adam Mansbach and Ricardo Cortes
Try this. Even if it doesn't work it feels good to read it.
Go the F**k to Sleep https://www.amazon.com/dp/1617750255/ref=cm_sw_r_cp_api_SjJ4xb7F77CEC
Assuming, since the original comment had it in quotes, they're referring to: http://www.amazon.com/Go-F-Sleep-Adam-Mansbach/dp/1617750255/
Here's another they might enjoy. "No you go the fuck to sleep, daddy!" Ah, quality time with the kids making memories.
It is becoming a best seller, saw this book at Amazon.
Oh, i thought English matter is the key. Because if it was, then i shall recommend you this, =] ~ http://www.amazon.com/Go-F-Sleep-Adam-Mansbach/dp/1617750255
haha, I take it you haven't read 'Go the F**k to Sleep' yet? Link
Buy the book....
What about this one? Go the f*ck to sleep
You should read him this one next.
Who got my toddler
Go the Fuck to Sleep
After reading that, you read "Go the F**K to Sleep".
I still find this book to be a better source of bed time stories.
i just ordered it from amazon Prime even! http://www.amazon.com/Go-F-Sleep-Adam-Mansbach/dp/1617750255/ref=sr_1_1?s=books&ie=UTF8&qid=1446651445&sr=1-1&keywords=go+the+fuck+to+sleep
Dude, it's 5am here, please go to sleep
Funny thing to write...for a guy that owned slaves.
did you try reading this book to him?
Bad luck and questionable decisions result in payoff for kid. Film at eleven.
Next to "Go the Fuck to Sleep" this is the best childrens' book ever!!
You can turn it out of the mould and caramelise the entire shell for more crunchy goodness. Best made in tea cups for this though for a nice rounded igloo appearance.
Hello I am Simon, aka Honeydew of the Yogscast on YouTube http://www.youtube.com/BlueXephos and I have been asked by some Redditor veteran to post an AMA on here so here it is! We just hit the half a million subscribers milestone on YouTube where we make videos of us playing games and also we do an irregular podcast. Also I just failed the captcha so I'm starting to doubt my humanity.

If your name is Banksalot, Coinz, Moneymann, or some other similar AH alt name, know this: I will spend the 25 silver more and buy from the player you tried to undercut. I would rather give my gold to them. That is all.
