    Physical exercise and 'behavior' training which may be neuroplasticity but not identified other than quiet movements like yoga and tai chi??????

    CBS should drop this immediately. But they won't, because they're as left wing politically as gaffigan.
    Can u say Dan Rather? I guarantee you, you'll see a 25% drop for his segment. Sad. But not surprised

    The calm but weary voice of resignation and surrender to the happy chaos and high decible level of 5 kids! 💖💖💖

    Is it fair to call an entire home an “apartment “?

    Jim always hits the nail on the head.

    When did Jim Gaffigan become a ka-billionaire??? He lives in New York City with FIVE KIDS and his wife in a multi-room apartment?! He must've secretly been settin' up stacks on stacks on stacks like Byron Allen did when he secretly became a media mogul.

  14. April 20, 2021

    Maybe because I’m a teacher and parent….this was pretty damn hilarious

    Welcome to all the craziness you've been missing that your wife has obviously delt with all along. Five kids? I'm surprised she hasn't given you your own color coded schedule before now. Kudos to your wife and her organizational skills!

    I hope you are all getting out atleast once a day for a nice walk. Yes you can wear masks. You need Vitamin D from sun ☀️ and air and exercise. It also builds up your immune system. Yes you can all wash your hands when you come inside.

    I'm pretty sure Jim had 7 kids going into to quarantine. The other two must have mouthed off.

    It is interesting to see what people have to go thru. I don't think I would be able to do it. I'd just say, "Kids, go play your favorite board game. Do a jigsaw puzzle. I'm going back to bed. Wake me when it's over."

    People keep saying they are “homeschooling”. They’re not.
    Thanks for using the correct term.

    you give them, and you take them; you give them, and then you take them. it's fun. (he has described my daily life – only i only have two children, ages 12 and 14. try to take an electronic device away from a 12 and 14 year old. 'talk about fun! 🙂

    Jim looks and sounds like he's channeling Jack Nicholson here with a tightly wound, rather cryptic narrative. Hang in there, Jim! Looks like you and Jeannie have everything well under control. Chores keep you sane. God bless you; always love your work!

    I think teachers are going to get a lot more respect after this. Try doing tech support with THIRTY kids, Jim, while still imparting knowledge and trying to keep them from killing each other. You don't have a clue how tough it can be.

    Who thinks Jim is moving out of the city after this quarantine ?

  35. April 20, 2021

    The funny part is seeing the kids being themselves. I enjoy watching!

    Thats a great idea. The safe!!!. We need a safe for the food too! Maybe we should have a "safe" room. Not a bad idea!

    If this had been going on when my kids were in school we would have been fine. My son was always the tech guy for everyone we knew. The only thing we would have had to deal with would have been phone calls from other people and him having to walk them through it. He had a computer in our living room for my daughter and he made it were he could watch everything she was doing from his in his bedroom. He worried about the internet pedophiles.

    Kids are so cute.

  41. April 20, 2021

    Those kids are lucky (blessed). There are some families in our school district with the same amount of children as the Gaffigans and they only have one or two devices to share.

    Love you guys. I homeschooled for 20 years. Never had to give it to someone else to do. Never used a curriculum. No lessons at all. And everyone is employed with Master degrees. Love the way you discipline the kids. I was a nanny for 40 years and I want every parent to watch your family. You guys need to write a parenting book. I'm one of 12 so I love the "chaos".
