What did I expect? I don’t know but I should have been warned of a few things before starting.

    First I should have been warned NOT to read this book in public. There are too many times that Scott’s writing evokes either tears or laughter or both. This can be embarrassing and hard to explain when reading in public places. Second, I should have been warned that this dichotomy of emotions would start within the first 20 pages and continue for the entire book!

    Because this book came in a package with a diabetes how-to book, I very much expected a book about diabetes. I was wrong. Diabetes is huge because his daughter has diabetes but diabetes is secondary to the book’s wisdom and insight. I quickly went from…what sort of diabetes peeps should read this?

This book is really approachable -- it feels like Scott's sitting down with me and complaining and celebrating and just sharing. I'm not married and I don't have kids, but I can only imagine how much it'd resonate with readers that did, and even for me, I found myself laughing and crying as I read. When Scott talks about Arden's diagnosis of T1 diabetes, or about playing baseball with Cole, I really felt what he was feeling -- he's a great storyteller. More than anything, though, his love for his family shines through,

I found myself saying out loud, YES! THAT'S EXACTLY RIGHT! I rode a roller coaster through out loud laughter, head shaking sadness, and tears of empathy. I've recommended this book to so many people and I highly recommend it to you!

There are moments that make you laugh, moments that make you go Aww, and yes, moments that in a way make you sad. In those moments though, the author provides a larger perspective on the situation that removes the initial sadness (and there are only a handful of moments). The author has a great perspective at the larger picture. I can't select a specific moment in the book as my favorite. Although the making of his children was a little tmi, I still smil

I absolutely loved this book. I think everyone should read this book. This book isn't just for parents or soon-to-be-parents or women but everyone. This book has some great parenting tips as well as great life tips. I think one reason this book is so great is a lot of people will be to relate to Scott. He wasn't born into the perfect storybook family and didn't have the perfect storybook life, he knows how crappy life can be but he didn't let it beat him down. I think it would be great if there were a couple more books written by Scott from his perspective then maybe his wife’s perspective then maybe each of his children. This is a wonderfully imperfect perfect family. Thank-you Scott for sharing your story and thank-you Goodreads for giving me the opportunity to read it.

(I don't round things up. It's a weird defect I have.) The title of this book caught my eye at the library and I thought it would be a fun read. I figured a stay-at-home dad would have a different perspective on staying at home and I hoped that he would be funny. He was funny, but he was also much more open and emotional than I expected.
    The last part of the book deals with how he and his wife cope with their daughter

I have known Scott for over 20 years. I was amazed with his talent as a writer. I always know that he was a creative person, but never in a million years thought he would be a published author.
