I Could Pee on This and other fun books for the whole family.

Looking for some books that both you and your toddler could enjoy? Look no further than these adorable little volumes of poems that are hard to get through without a chuckle. The books are actually considered for adults, but their raunchy humor is veiled just well enough that kids won’t get it – and you will. The dog one is actually letters, and it does have some mild cursing, but I included it anyway because it’s also a fun book to read and it fits with the theme.

The cat ones are great. For example, one of the poems is about an angry kitten where some ‘choice words’ are written as [deleted]. You can fill in the blanks =) Another is about a cat saying that if he were to take you to the vet, he’d make sure you came back with ‘both of them’ (and no, he’s not talking about you and him).

I was pleasantly surprised at how much I enjoyed reading those books, and I’d recommend them to anyone, with or without kids, for a quick laugh.

Dad is Fat by Jim Gaffigan

16141924

What’s better to listen to on a road trip than stand-up comedy? A hilarious book written and narrated by a comic. It made the eight hour drive to a friend’s wedding fly by, all while my husband and I laughed and nodded our way through.

Dad is Fat is about Jim Gaffigan and his life with five small children in two bedroom New York apartment. He touches up on pretty much every aspect of parenting, including lack-there-of, and does it spectacularly. Each story gives us a little validation while also allowing us to admit that no matter what we do, we will never be that perfect parent because well, there’s no such thing, really.

We laughed, we cried, but most of all, we enjoyed it, and you will too, even if you’re not a parent. And get the audio book – it’s worth it.

Hooooot pockets.
