Summary

'I always wanted kids - but then again, I always wanted a loft conversion. Both are pretty easy to put off, as they're very expensive and tend to wreck your house.'

Stand-up comedian Sam Avery (aka the Learner Parent) started his award-winning blog when his twin boys were born. A million nappies and Peppa Pig episodes and a lot less sleep later, he shares all the lows, highs and hilarious in-betweens of his experiences of first-time parenthood in this, his highly anticipated first book.

Sam's honest, messy and laugh-out-loud account of trying for a baby (which transpired to be babies) and figuring out what to do with them once they arrived - right up to the toddler years of talking, walking and tantruming - will have you crying with laughter between your own nappy changes and nursery runs.

A must!!!

if anyone should read one book this year it’s this!
Sam is witty and his narrative of parenting is hilarious.
The twins point of view is equally as funny and possibly very accurate.
As a mum of six from 14 to 2 it’s relatable.
Well done sam books fantastic please write another one 🤗

You can't have too many funny dad books

Hot on the heels of Man vs. Baby, this is another excellent addition to the growing library of blog-based books by funny dads. Can't wait for volume 2.
