Summary

Real-life parents talk real-life parenting! 

This book isn't a guide or a parenting manual - it's more of a support group for parents who are having their children in their 30s and 40s to get together, to celebrate, share experiences, laugh and find joy in what is still the biggest life-changing experience any of us will ever go through. It's the book I looked for when I was pregnant, that spoke to me as a working parent and that I couldn't find, so I've had a go at writing one myself.

Joining the parenting club in our 30s and beyond means that we are spinning an extraordinary amount of plates, often including a career at its peak. Most of us coparent or fly solo in the true sense of the word, relying solely on our partners and/or friends when, more often than not, extended family are too far away to help on a regular basis. Our parents could look to their parents for the usual guidance and extra support, but our situation is new, modern and unique. We are winging it!

Read by me, Alex Jones!

Featuring:

  • Expert advice from Zita West, Clemmie Hooper, Dr Sarah Jarvis, Mother Pukka, Zoe Williams, Selfish Mother and more. 
  • Hilarious and heartwarming anecdotes plus tips and tricks from parents winging it, too.

We're rewriting the rule book and winging it, but we are winging it together!

Love,

Alex

Brillant!

Well done Alex!
I feel like I know you.
I like the fact that Alex is reading the book. It makes me feel like I’ve had been having a coffee and chat with her, having listened to her story. I can relate to what she’s going through. Makes me feel better about being a “older mother” because I don’t feel like one, I see where she’s coming from.
Funny full of humour book.
Lots of facts too, based on research she had done.
