Summary

A real mum's hilariously honest tales of motherhood, mayhem and mental health.

'You see, pre-motherhood I had this image of the sort of motherhood I was going to have. Happy, confident and in total control, breezing through my perfect new mum life, clad in white linen, with a smiley, easygoing baby attached to my hip. But then, something happened.'

This audiobook is about bathing in the crazy, dirty, hilarious, bonkers truth about motherhood.

It's about being brave.

It's about empowering each other; talking about the times we get it wrong, our mental health, our worries about being perfect. It's about admitting that we all need a little help.

For every mum out there feeling lost in the wilderness. For every mum feeling pressure to be perfect. For every mum questioning if they are good enough. You are magnificent.

Grated a bit

This is funny in places and worth a listen but unfortunately I found the very frequent use of the phrase 'tiny human' really annoying after a while, as well as the author saying 'wouldn't care less' instead of 'couldn't care less'.
