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, 3am 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.
My 5* Review
I absolutely loved this book, I have been following her blog for a while and this has been in the pile to read for a long time and I decided it was time to actually sit down and read it.
I love the candid way in which this was written, there were no punches pulled and it was a very honest account of a life as a Mum of two young children. During this book she made me reflect to when my daughter was younger, laugh and I mean laugh out loud so people around you look up and also feel the judgement that we all feel we are facing as Mum’s even though this is probably not the case.
I would highly recommend this book to any Mum out there who thinks she just isn’t good enough as this will give you the uplift you need to fight another day. I would also recommend this to anyone who is looking to have children as this is the most honest reflection I have ever read on parenting.
Although this is not a handbook to parenting and never claims to be, it gives you an amazing and refreshingly honest insight into a day with tiny people both the highs and the lows and also demonstrates that no matter how bad the day has been the love for your children always wins through.
