The Mother of All Jobs
- How to Have Children and a Career and Stay Sane(ish)
- By: Christine Armstrong
- Narrated by: Christine Armstrong
- Length: 9 hrs and 34 mins
When Christine Armstrong became a mother, it never occurred to her that she would want to stop work or even work part-time. But the truth is, combining work and small kids is hard. From the broken breast pumps on business trips, to hiding chicken pox from the nursery, to the heartbreak when you come home and realise your baby smells of the childminder. When Christine Armstrong tried it, she found herself desolate with misery. Determined to make it work, she looked for answers by interviewing other working mums and found that she wasn't alone.
Interesting and thought-provoking

I could not finish this book. the author just whines about every single challenge and provides unworkable solutions. If you're looking to relish in negativity then this is the book for you but if you want something positive and solution focused, then find another book.
