Nightstand: Dad is Fat


I’m in the middle of this book and I love it!! Here’s a small passage from Dad is Fat that reminded me of my kids and made me laugh,

What amazes me is that once they [toddlers] actually learn to walk, they are immediately trying to get away. You just say, “Time for bath!” and they scoot away like they have an escape car outside. I don’t know where they think they are going. They can’t even reach the doorknob. I am always like, “What are you doing? You only know us! Think it through!” They’ve only been on the planet for twelve months, and they can’t really go stay with a friend or check into a motel, but that doesn’t stop them. It doesn’t matter if they don’t have a plan. They are just trying to leave.”
