Most people wouldn’t think sarcasm and irony would make for a good baby or new parent gift, but I for one whole-heartedly disagree.
I love me some sarcasm – it’s one of my favorite varieties of humor (and the reason why I adore April on Parks and Recreation). And in the face of being a first time parent, who couldn’t use a laugh or two…if only to keep them grounded and sane?
