Bruce Stockler captures the chaos, joy and challenges of becoming the father of triplets in this hilarious, fast-paced, and refreshingly honest memoir.
From the moment Stockler and his wife ,Roni, learn they have hit the fertility jackpot, their lives are turned upside down. The day the babies are born—in an operating room bustling with 30 doctors, nurses and technicians—is the first jolt in a physical and emotional roller-coaster ride. And every day following continues to reveal one unpredictable twist after another. Just going to the supermarket and keeping the kids—and the store—safe from disaster is like an episode from an adventure story. When the triplets start to walk, and explode in three directions at once, they quickly learn to exploit their newfound freedom at every possible turn.
Bruce Stockler's humor pieces have appeared in publications including The New York Times, The Los Angeles Times, The Philadelphia Inquirer, and The Christian Science Monitor. A regular contributor to Esquire, he has also been a joke writer for Jay Leno. He and his family live in the suburbs of New York City.
