Take a hilarious journey through fatherhood with Dale Alderman and his two young sons, Chase and Logan.

Based on actual events that occurred over seven years, Dale presents a collection of funny stories including:

  • Breast Pads and Nipple Cream
  • Honey, I Shrunk My Underpants
  • Stinkerhead
  • Stop It, Quit It, Stop It, Quit It
  • The Farmer Cuts the Cheese

Before he became a father, no one told Dale the stuff he really needed to know, like how to deal with a rampaging three-year-old at the circus, or how to corral two boys before they demolish a restaurant.

From a Little League baseball game to a grade school field trip, Dale takes normal daily activities and turns them into wild escapades.

Come on along and let Dale show you how much he loves Being A Dad.

    Great Gift for the Dads You Know

    If you're looking for that one book to give to all the special dads you know, this is it. Alderman speaks the language of dads, and there's so many out there who will be able to relate. Here's seven years worth of being Mr. Mom to two boys. It's fun for moms to read, too. Where else can you hear a man who understands some of what moms have been enduring forever? And Alderman injects his wonderful sense of humor into every situation. Being able to laugh at the author's adventures will help you to laugh at your own family dilemmas.

    more from this reviewer


    I recently read Big White Panties by Mr. Alderman and laughed until I was crying. He is the best story teller and comedy writer that I have EVER encountered. (And I have read quite a few ones that were extremely good.) Mr Alderman beats ALL of them, hands down. I would love to read this one and although not available for Nook, I think I might just order a printed copy. It sure is worth it. If you want a side-splitter that is the best you have ever encountered, treat yourself to Mr. Alderman. I promise you, you will be laughing at just the memories of what he writes for some time after you finish the book.
