Hearing Jennifer Garner read Adam Mansbach’s expletive-filled children’s book Go the F*ck to Sleep will make your day.

She even ad libs a poignant line, adding, “I know you’re not thirsty, that’s bullsh*t, stop lying. Lie the f*ck down, my darling, and sleep.”

Watch the video and enjoy, knowing that you’re not alone in your expletive-filled nightly routine!

The mum-of-three (Violet, 10, Seraphina, 7, and Sam, 4) certainly has a good idea of what parents deal with every day.

  • Hahaha I love this! Every mother or fathers feeling at bed time I believe.
    She read it so well with actions included.

  • Oh dear, so funny. Definitely not for reading to the kids, but probably conveys a lot of parents feelings at bedtime

    For those saying they wouldn’t read it to their children because of the swear words ! That’s not the point of this book lol!

    Personally I wouldn’t read this to my kids, with all these swear words !
    But sharing this with my friends will be good for some laughs.

  • I love this book. It’s written with tongue in cheek to express how we sometimes feel when our little angels won’t go to sleep. Jennifer Garner is a Mum herself and knows the feeling I’m sure
