Go the F**k to Sleep

We had one of those nights last night - the Little Man kept waking up, and decided that he'd had enough by 5:30am, so we've been up since then.

I'd heard about this book before, but had forgotten about it (probably in all my sleep deprivation) and my hubby sent me the PDF this morning. It's a children's book for adults, written by a father of two and it's called: Go the F**k to Sleep

It written as a poem and had me laughing out loud this morning.

Best verse:
"The cubs and the lions are snoring
Wrapped in a big snuggly heap
How is it you can do all this other great shit
But you can't lie the fuck down and sleep?"

Someone should sing it slowly like a lullaby and see if that works.

UPDATE: You can see Samuel L. Jackson (isn't that apt!) reading it on Letterman!
(The videos keep getting taken down by Audible, so you may have to search around.)
