Product Description

'If David Sedaris had got married and had kids, he would have been Reservoir Dad. Fall-on-the-floor funny, sharp, witty and just a little bit sexy.' Kerri Sackville, Best Australian Blog 2013 judge

A sharply funny, fresh and irreverent chronicler of real life in today's parenting trenches, Reservoir Dad is a stay-at-home dad whose award-winning blog has already won hearts and minds all over Ausrtralia and beyond for telling it like it is and making us laugh out loud - and sometimes cry, but in a good way.

Whether he's making us choke with laughter, 'scrisper' (a scream, tempered by a whisper - vital to surviving the unexpected joys of being in charge of four little boys under seven on a plane, train,

I've become a fan of the website recently and thought I should just bite the bullet and get the book. It really is a great read as it delves into the chaos which is raising children and the whole lot that goes along with being a Stay At Home Dad (Which I have been one of 8 months now). The book also has a lot of laugh out loud moments and bits where I have insisted my wife must read, because they are just too good to keep to myself.
The only downside is that if you are a fan of the blog there is a lot of the books content already over there. Although this is nicely ordered and has a better flow. I hope Clint writes another book in the future to keep us updated on the trials of having kids that are growing into teenagers and how life has become for the family as the parents hit their mid 40s and beyond.

Now, when is the movie coming out?

In 2008, Clint Greagen resigned from his job as a youth worker to care for his first born child. Nine years later Clint is a stay at home dad of four young boys, Archie, Lewis, Tyson and Maki, and the author of Reservoir Dad, about his adventures in full-time parenting, first chronicled on his popular blog of the same name.

Written with humour, honesty and love, Reservoir Dad shares the exhausting challenges and unadulterated joys of raising four sons, from the seemingly endless sleepless nights, and a bathroom floor covered in wee, to the smell of a newborn head and wrestling matches in the lounge room. What I admire most is Greagen's obvious dedication to his sons, and his relationship with his wife, the ever-patient Reservoir Mum (aka Tania), with whom he still shares a weekly date night, on a mattress in front of the TV.

As a stay at home mother, also to four children (three of whom were born in three years), I could certainly relate to Greagen's experiences of parenting. I found myself giggling in recognition of the moments of crazy and wincing in well remembered sympathy at toddler tantrums and the lego induced injuries, which happens less often now that my youngest son is 8.

Divided into six parts with short chapters variously named with titles like 'Hang Like A Man'; 'Syncing Hormonally'; 'The Grand Old Duke of...Puke?' and 'A Jim Carrey-Inspired Sex Education' Reservoir Dad is a quick, easy read.

Funny, moving and insightful, Reservoir Dad would be the perfect gift for new parents, both as a warning of what is to come, and an assurance they are not alone.

Witty, insightful, and a must read for any modern day dad (or those curious about them)! Greagen is a fresh and exceedingly skilful wordsmith. Can't wait for what he taps out next.
