It’s one thing to be a parent but to be the parent of five boys takes a special kind of breed. Over the years, Nathan Ripperger has found himself saying the craziest things to his children. But instead of complaining to family, friends and on social media (though we’re sure he’s done that too), the videographer and graphic designer took to illustrating those wacky moments in a series of posters.
Now, Ripperger has taken it a step further with his new book, Things I’ve Said to My Children, which is now available at Indigo. It features dozens of hilarious pictures and captures all the crazy moments Nathan has dealt with over the last decade (that’s right, his sons are all under the age of 10). And now he’s sharing them with the rest of us.
