Lewis decided to keep a written record of what actually happened immediately after the birth of each of his three children. This book is that record. But it is also something else: maybe the funniest, most unsparing account of ordinary daily household life ever recorded from the point of view of the man inside. The remarkable thing about this story isn t that Lewis is so unusual. It's that he is so typical. The only wonder is that his wife has allowed him to publish it.
