News Spotlight: Parental F Bombs
Adam Mansbach's "Go the F**k to Sleep" is the latest book phenomenon. In a quest to express his frustration putting his 2-year-old daughter to sleep, he wrote a children's book (geared toward parents of course) about the perils of bedtime. Before its release, it became a viral sensation and as soon as it was available, it became a bestseller. This is proof that although parenting is usually praised as a euphoric experience, it does in actuality, sometimes suck.
"Bleary and dazed I awaken
To find your eyes shut, so I keep
My fingers crossed tight as I tiptoe away
And pray that you're f---ing asleep."
