A modern mothering handbook – with none of the answers and all of the encouragement.
Everyone tells you that having children is life-changing (and we’re not just talking about your new habit of binge-watching Bluey episodes), but you don’t really believe them until you’re there in the trenches, dealing with yet another toddler tantrum in the middle of the street, after realising you forgot to buy milk, all on four hours of (broken) sleep. Parenting is one of the hardest jobs in the world, and yet everyone assumes you should be enjoying it twenty-four hours a day, seven days a week, which is funny because that pretty much describes your working hours. Oh, and did we mention that there are no toilet breaks, or holidays, or dare we say it… wages?
This book will be a handy companion as you deal with the ups and downs of motherhood. From making your way through those first few months of the newborn haze right through to sending them off into the world as (almost) proper adults, it contains a treasure trove of advice and words of wisdom from parents who have done it and got the (vomit-covered) T-shirt to prove it. While motherhood is undoubtedly special, it’s not without it’s challenges… and anyone who says otherwise is either a saint or has a really good nanny.
