This is not a parenting manual. This is real life.
The Unmumsy Mum writes candidly about motherhood like it really is: the messy, maddening, hilarious reality; how there is no 'one size fits all' approach; and how it is sometimes absolutely fine to not know what you are doing.
The lessons she's learnt while grappling with two small boys - from birth to teething, three a.m. night feeds to toddler tantrums, soft play to toilet training - will have you roaring with laughter and taking great comfort in the fact that it's definitely not just you....

Thank you for saying out loud some of my thoughts and for giving me an insight of what is yet to come!
Great audio book and I really enjoyed Sarah reading it. Highly recommended to any parents 😊
loved this book...hilariously laugh out loud funny with some lovely down to earth memories. definitely one to listen too if you are feeling low about your parenting!
funny memoir laughed a lot. I'm not a mum or even a mum to be at this day but it did make me think about what would be to come. Th r honest accounts are just brilliant and made house cleaning and car journeys interesting
A brilliantly narrated and written blog/book about the joys, highs and definite lows that come with motherhood.
Mrs Judgy Knickers!!!! We've all met one!
I needed this book. My daughter is four months old and for the first four months of her life I was convinced I was doing something wrong and that I just wasn't cut out for motherhood. But before I'd even got five minutes in I was crying with relief - someone has felt the same and I'm not alone! I've already bought a hard copy for my pregnant cousin and can't recommend this enough. Thank you Unmumsy Mum! A massive relief and funny, refreshing read (listen!).
Maybe not the best material for a book and worked better as a blog.. The amount of negative feelings accumulated in 6 hours just brought me more anxiety than joy or reassurance or relief of ability to relate. Not that the book doesn't have any positive messages, but I think they are drowned in the poop, barf and 'I can't get out of the house' stories. It is possible that the book just wasn't for me or I could not relate to the cultural setting, maybe parenting is different in UK. I would not recommend this book to an expecting parent. I will listen to it again after my son is born and revise.
"So very real and lovely"
Great book from start to finish. I was laughing and nearly crying. The book makes you think and realise you're never alone in your feelings. Great for all mums and mums to be!
