Product Description

Review

"A humorous guide for dads of daughters, covering the ins and outs of everything from hosting tea parties to living in a world of pink." - Toronto Star

"Laugh-out-loud book." - Chicago Tribune

"I would recommend any person, man or women, who is expecting a daughter to read 'Oh, You're Having a Girl' for a good laugh about the joys and antics that comes with having all girls." - Coastal Carolina Parent

About the Author

Brian A. Klems is a writer, husband, softball player, perennial fantasy sports underachiever, and father of three lovely little girls. He's a proud graduate of the journalism school at Ohio University. He's also the online editor of Writer's Digest magazine. When he isn't explaining the differences between "who" and "whom" on his "The Writer's Dig" blog or mowing his lawn (two weeks later than he should have), he's likely playing "Ring Around the Rosy" with his daughters. You can visit his website at www.TheLifeofDad.com.

Poorly written, sarcastic throughout written in fairy tale prose. What a waste, after 5 pages of reading, I went to the middle...same thing. In the garbage bin.

HASH(0x9e94c858) out of 5 stars Funny stuff for new dads! March 14 2013
By Phillip Sexton - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
The timing of this book was perfect. I'm going to be the father of a new baby girl in approximately six weeks and am as excited as can be. I read Klem's book from cover to cover. It's not so much a serious guide on "how to raise girls" as it is a humor book by a very funny writer describing what it's like to raise girls. I laughed a lot. If you're wondering how you're going to do it, how you're going to deal with all the pink, and tea parties, and dolls, etc, this is a book that somehow empathizes with you and reassures you that it's all going to turn out great, even if you don't know what you're doing. And the author is a fan of the Cincinnati Reds as well, so you know he's smart (or at the very least, devoted).

A comical twist on learning to love the color pink, learning to protect your daughter(s) and how life changing, being the father of a daughter truly is. Excellent read!

HASH(0x9e94cda4) out of 5 stars Made me laugh out loud! May 3 2013
By mbmurphy - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
Brian Klems has the best sense of humor. This book is absolutely hilarious but so true. The way Brian weaves his humor throughout this book is perfect. I bought one for myself, one for my mom, and one for my brother-in-law! I definitely recommend this funny book.

HASH(0x9e94e288) out of 5 stars A must read for any dad with a little girl June 14 2013
By Paul McKibben - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
Brian Klems' new book is a funny must-read for any dad or mom with a daughter. Several times while reading this book, I found myself laughing out loud. My wife read the book before me and had a similar experience.

Klems takes you through all of the challenges a new father with a daughter faces. There's the sudden surprise in the delivery room when you realize that little baby doesn't have a penis. You have a girl!! Then there are the joys of diaper changing and accepting the color pink that now covers your house and your daughter. As your little girl gets older, instead of G.I. Joe, Transformers and baseball, she discovers Dora, Disney princesses and ballet.

What's a dad to do? Klems feels your pain and offers some wonderful humorous tips and insight.

In the end,(if you haven't already) you realize what a joy and blessing a daughter is.

-Paul McKibben, Cincinnati journalist and proud father of a daughter
