This was brilliant! It was so funny. I loved the way she told you the ideal situation and how she planned to do things with her children and then flipped it around and told you what really happens - absolute chaos 🤣

Not going to lie, at the start i didn't really enjoy this book. I felt there was too much sarcasm and use of the word 'Moppets' but about halfway through there was the incidents at Christmas with Louisa and her tribe; the bath oils and and the sperm smoothies; and it had me in hysterics!
I can not wait to start the sequal! So funny! ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐

Hammock time with my girls. Which of course means I‘m barely reading. 😂

I started this last night and am only a few chapters in, but it had me spitting my wine out in laughter multiple times. This should be fun!

I also did a little rearranging and made us a nice area to hold our drinks. 🤞my husband doesn‘t try to take it over with piles of stuff as he does with every available surface we already have.

AmyG Ah, my husband does that. He works from home. We have a joke here. Every pile...we call that a “branch office”. It looks lovely—may it stay that way! (edited) 12mo
CocoReads @AmyG mine just sets stuff down and that‘s where it stays until I throw a tantrum. Because if I try to throw away what is obviously junk (how many cabela‘s catalogs does one need?) he gets mad. 12mo
CareBear @AmyG “branch office” 🤣 12mo
CocoReads I did get a snicker out of “branch office”. So far so good, he added a couple bottles of whiskey to the collection and we had a reasonably pleasant evening. I work nights for the next couple of days and then all day Sat., so we‘ll see how it looks by Sunday. 12mo
AmyG My husband saves catalogs all the time. He never buys anything from them. 😳 12mo

GingerAntics Is this in the same vein as “I Want My Epidural Back”? 12mo
Birdsong28 @GingerAntics Yes it is. It's fiction tho. It's from the lady who writes the Peter and Jane page on Facebook and she has written Why Mummy Drinks and Why Mummy Swears they are very funny. 12mo
GingerAntics I‘m going to have to look into this series. 12mo

GingerAntics They actually change the titles for countries where they say mom instead of mum. That‘s sad. I far prefer mum. 12mo
Birdsong28 @GingerAntics I don't think there is any particular way to read it but I would read it in the order they were released which is Why Mummy Drinks then Why Mummy Swears. Enjoy 😀📚📖 12mo
Birdsong28 @GingerAntics I prefer mum too! All books do that so it relates to the audience of the country, sometimes it makes it better sometimes it doesn't 📚📖 12mo
GingerAntics I‘ve gotten some that stick with Mum. Actually, it seems that the only one that‘s been released on this side of the pond is Why Mummy Drinks. Why Mummy Swears is in pro-order here. Why Mummy Doesn‘t Give A doesn‘t even come up. (edited) 12mo
Birdsong28 @GingerAntics This book has just been announced today in the UK so it may be a while that you get it but you will have the two to keep you occupied while you wait. 😀📚📖 12mo

Good. Enjoyed the entertaining look through a year in the life of a family. Laughed out loud at most of it as I have seen it all happen to friends and family and can relate even though I don't have children myself. Recommend to everyone.

I was unsure of this book when I picked it up but I was hooked right from the start. Being a mum to a 6 year old boy I completely relate to this book. It has had me gripped all the way through and has been a lovely easy read.

This was so real and very funny. As a mum I could relate to much of this story. We all have those moments of doubt and should talk more. I liked that the book developed through the course of a year touching on all the big moments. The story was interesting and funny. I had a worry it was going to lead to her doing something bad and I'm so glad it didn't.

So cynical and negative. If I want to listen to constant whining I‘ll talk to ....well....anyone. I read to escape reality. This book is too boringly real. But also provides no new perspectives or insights.

Less than $5. How could I not?! Ok, so this year I will not to buy anything new, with the exception of a book for book club if it isn‘t available any other way. Attacking my own TBR - both hard copies and eBooks is the plan - as many others have posted about! But really, if it doesn‘t happen it doesn‘t matter .
I did do a massive clean out of books on my shelf a couple of years ago. Got sick of the pressure of them so donated them unread.

On Facebook I follow a blog called Peter and Jane its all about this author and her family life. Its very funny and worth reading everyday. This her first book its fiction so its probably loosely based on her so buy it and enjoy!!!
