I Said Stop Throwing Peas! Dammit!
Whether we’ve inherited his nose, sense of humor, or entire value system, our dads loom large in who we are and the choices we make. In this collection of true life tales from the trenches of parenting, Heather B. Armstrong, creator of dooce.com, brings together some of the best and brightest voices of the blogosphere to share their fears, foibles, and fantastic moments of fatherhood.
Bracingly funny, cheerfully cranky, and always honest, this charming collection of essays redefines the notion of the “modern American family,” and reads like a love letter to fatherhood.
