“An absolutely delightful addition to the parenting canon from ‘Captain Dad’ (don’t call him ‘Mr. Mom’) Pat Byrnes. Captain Dad illustrates (literally, with a dozen or so laugh-out-loud cartoons) the ‘manly art’ of stay-at-home parenting. He pulls it off with great wit, warmth, and some bombshell revelations. Never would I think of a jockstrap as part of the parenting uniform or that (outrageously!) dads don’t have ‘potty parity’ in diaper changing rooms. And as a mom, this is a must-have book for sweet vindication alone. Captain Dad confirms that when it comes to fulltime parenting, wimps need not apply. Welcome, Captain Dad, to our tired, unwashed, unpaid, and undervalued army. Now, let’s get you some yoga pants!”
