Thanks to Katie of Peace on Birth, I bring a simple smile to your day.  This is especially for those dear to us who are expecting their fourth child and live in a two-bedroom apartment, and for those who passed the family-of-six point quite a while ago.  :)  He's a little too hard on fathers, but you can tell he doesn't really mean it, just poking fun at himself to make a point.  I'd never heard of Jim Gaffigan, but that's a name I'll be alert to from now on.  There are some things he gets that few commedians do.  I do wish he'd stop with the singular use of "they," however.  I mean, he's talking about mothers.  I think he could use "she" without excluding anyone.

I first noticed Jim Gaffigan on the show My Boys. He played the "hen-pecked" brother of the main character. I think he told the "guys" that his wife was making him do this or that, when really it was okay with him.

His shows "Mr. Universe" and "Beyond the Pale" are streaming on Netflix. Mr. Universe is the better of the two. I have also seen some interviews or other clips that actually show his apartment and all his kids (I believe he has 5 now). He also has a couple of books out.

His wife Jeannie is also his writing and producing partner.

We've seen that before, and laughed so hard!

Just watched it again with Jonathan, and I laughed just as hard! Faith came in halfway through, and said, "Why is it so funny?"

Faith will learn. :)
