Go the F#*% to Sleep

If you've ever been frustrated trying to put a child to sleep, you will be rolling over crying laughing when you read excerpts from this new bedtime stories for parents.  Perfect for new parents, or parents with toddlers who could use a good laugh...and a glass of wine!  Can't wait to slip it in a baby shower basket.

by Adam Mansbach

The eagles who soar through the sky are at rest
And the creatures who crawl, run and creep.
I know you’re not thirsty. That’s bullsh*t. Stop lying.

Lie the f**k down, my darling, and sleep

All the kids from daycare are in dreamland
The froggie has made his last leap
Hell no, you can't go to the bathroom
You know where you can go,  The F*&@ to sleep.

The cubs and the lions are snoring
Wrapped in a big snuggly heap.
How come you can do all this great sh*t
But can't lie the f*&$ down and sleep?
