Go the F**k to Sleep

I could not help but take the free download of this on audible. I do have to agree, it did bring back memories of when my kids were small and they would refuse to go to sleep.
This is a good read for the new parent. Probably would make a nice Baby Shower gift for that unsuspecting new mother or father. They may appreciate this book when their new little one keeps them up all hours of the night.

I am not one for profanity.

This is why I have only given this book 4 out of 5 ****


  1. Hi Linda! I've GOT to get this book! Or at least 'just' to review it! I have/had 2 ADHD kids who DON'T sleep. I am NOT a fan of profanity either, but . . . when it's 3:30 AM AND THEY ARE 'NOT SLEEPING' . . . I've been KNOWN TO FOUL MOUTH MYSELF!!!! That was EVERY night!! NIGHT AFTER NIGHT AFTER NIGHT AFTER NIGHT!!!!!!! I got to the point where I couldn't take it! I took the kids to the doctor, he said put a LOCK on their door!!! I could NOT do that . . . what if there was a fire??? That was my fear.
    I don't know WHAT the answer is???? Wait, yes I DO!!! It takes "2" parents to get the kids to sleep - It was ALWAYS 'ONLY ME'!! Why? Because "I" stayed at home and didn't WORK everyday!!!! LOL!!!! That SLOB is OUT of my life!!!!!
    Now they are grown and guess what? They STILL don't sleep!!!!! When my son is over - I GO TO BED!!!!! HA!!!! He's old enough to stay up as long as he wants! During the day when he needs a nap, I poke him awake!!! I tell him he won't sleep if he goes to sleep NOW!!!! So NOW when he is here, he HAS been sleeping at night!!! FINALLY!!!!!!!!!!
    It was SO HARD back then when they were little! UGH!!!!!
    I honestly DON'T know what the answer is, STILL!!! Except for comic relief like this!!!

  2. I hear yah Laurie. I worked second shift so bed time was not as big of an issue for me. But there was this one time both kids refused to go to bed. I told them they could stay up and they were happy. Then I went around and shut off all the lights and the TV and told them I was going to bed.
    It was only a matter of minutes before they decided this was not as fun as they thought it was going to be. Next thing I heard was them crying, "Mommy, I want to go to bed."
    Never had a problem again with them until they were teens.
    My daughter would sleep with her cellphone under her pillow. :(
