I work with a bunch of engineers, so I got a kick out of this recent xkcd comic. Of course, I do not recommend disassembling your offspring. The parts inside are not user serviceable and it may invalidate your warranty.
This actually reminds me of a book that we bought during pregnancy, called The Baby Owner's Manual. We were looking for something to help us prepare, but I'm frightened by the density of most baby care books, and that's coming from someone who actually enjoys reading. This one is small, but rich in content, and full of illustrations! You should check it out if you're looking for a humorous yet practical guide for new parents.
