?As a mom, I got more validation out of these pages than I ever did out in the parenting world. So good to read a book that gets it.?

?As a mom, what I loved (LOVED) about this book is how acutely Gilbert skewers the soul-draining isolation, the ?consistently traumatic? navigation between meltdown shoals, the confounding guilt and anger, the ?underwater slog? of the morning routine, and the chronic debilitation of incessantly worrying about the kids that is the stuff of almost all moms? daily life.?

?This is not a ?chronicle of a clown-dad? (although it is laugh-out-loud funny) but a gender-neutral war story about the hair-tearing, brain-scarring, and precious job of being a SAHP (stay-at-home parent) to three girls. As Gilbert says, parenting is the most thankless job in the universe. It’s invisible. It?s also the hardest.?

?Spliced in are more nuanced and serious musings on things like the implosive impact of no time to exercise, the loss of creativity, the stripping away of identity, and the guilt he feels (yep, guilt gets mentioned a lot around parents) at not always finding parenting the fun he thought it would be.?

?Absolutely loved this book! A must read for any parent, stay-at-home or not! I could relate to everything from the first page till the last. It helped me with the guilt and loneliness feeling. Thanks for capturing all the beauty and nastiness of being a SAHP so well!? ?This was a great book; witty, self-deprecating, and honest. I don’t think there is a parent alive who cannot relate to the stories and the stress that this author so ably voices in this book.?

?Wow! Where was this book two and half years ago when I too, started my journey as a SAHP! This book is for everyone! Many times, I felt as if the author was in my head, living my life! It felt great to know I?m not the only one out there on this rollercoaster of parent life. At times, I forgot the author was a male and it felt great when he would drop reminders of gender. Do yourself a favor and read this book! Enjoy!?

?I’ve been following Lance on Twitter for a while and whenever he shared excerpts from his book, I knew it was a book I wanted to read. I found myself laughing at the realness, relatability, and the humor of it all. I love that it is written by a father as I feel like stay at home dads are especially marginalized and made to feel invisible. This book captures the life of a stay at home parent accurately. From the feelings of isolation and loneliness yet no mental energy or time to socialize to the endless laundry and dishes and cooking and kid drama, I felt myself nodding along in camaraderie as I read. This book truly helped me on an emotional and mental level.”

Are you a mom or dad? Have you or your spouse ever been a full-time stay-at-home parent? Join former Human Resources and Recruitment professional Lance Gilbert during the first year of the hardest job he?s ever had! Lance didn?t know what he was in for and was utterly shocked at just how stressful and exhausting the hidden life of a SAHP (stay-at-home parent) really is.

Step into Lance?s home as he looks after his three young daughters. It?s a topsy-turvy adventure filled with daily tantrums, endless chores, and the unexpected psychological impacts of isolation. This is a gender-neutral account of one parent?s shocking realization that the caricature of home-parents as robe-wearing couch potatoes is completely unfounded.
