Brookline Patch Column: Exasperations Expressed

In this week's The Brookline Parent column for Brookline Patch, I discuss an event that took place last week which brought mirth and merriment to the heart of parents everywhere:

The publication of the book Go the (Expletive) to Sleep from Akashic Books.

Go read the column Exasperation Expressed, to see how Nomi and I and other Brookline residents reacted to the book, and why publisher Johnny Temple feels the book struck a chord with the parents of young children.

By the way, the author and illustrator of the book will be appearing at Brookline Booksmith on Thursday, July 14. Sounds like a good reason to get a babysitter that night....
