We’ve made no secret of the fact here at Mums Lounge that when it comes to Daddy bloggers, Clint Greagen aka Reservoir Dad, is one of our favourites (or any other kind of blogger for that matter!)
So, we are a little bit excited to share this excerpt with you from his book of the same name, read by none other than Greagen himself. (And of course, in true Reservoir Dad style, he has the ability to make you laugh before he has even uttered a word!) This short extract is from the chapter titled ‘Antenatal Class’ and is perfectly indicative of Greagen’s sharp wit and quirky sense of humour.
Greagen’s anecdotal stories of life as a stay-at-home Dad are both hilarious and poignant, and he interweaves his talent for spinning a good yarn with an honesty that is capable of moving his readers to tears or laughter, sometimes simultaneously.
Whether you are a parent of young children, an empty nester, or even taking your first nervous steps towards boarding the roller-coaster ride of parenthood, Reservoir Did will have you hooked from the first chapter!
If David Sedaris had got married and had kids, he would have been Reservoir Dad. Fall-on-the-floor funny, sharp, witty and just a little bit sexy …’
Best Australian Blog 2013 judge Kerri Sackville sums up the feelings of the legions of fans of Reservoir Dad, aka Clint Greagen, a stay-at-home dad who tells it like it is and makes us laugh out loud – and sometimes cry, but in a good way.
A wickedly funny and irreverent chronicler of real life in today’s parenting trenches, whether he’s making us choke with laughter or ‘scrisper’ (a scream, tempered by a whisper, vital to surviving wrangling four little boys in planes, trains, automobiles and supermarkets), it’s easy to see why his star is rising.
Women love him and men admire him for keeping it real and doing his best to man up, even (and perhaps especially) when he fails, sometimes spectacularly.
In Reservoir Dad, he finally shares the whole enchilada. The result is a laugh out loud , refreshingly down to earth and moving modern-day love story that reminds us of what really matters amongst all the chaos and craziness …
