Whether you are a first-time mum or have a couple of them under your belt, you are in for a treat with the This Mum Malarkey book from Siobhan Butel – featuring parenting tales from the woefully unprepared and perpetually overwhelmed
This Mum Malarkey
A first-time mum’s hilarious guide to raising under fives
Why won’t my child sleep? How is Postman Pat still employed? Who put Magic Sand down the toilet? And other questions you’ve asked before stress-eating all the biscuits…
Jam-packed with truths every parent will relate to, even if they won’t admit it. Roll up for parenting tales from the woefully unprepared and perpetually overwhelmed.
As soon as the lines appear on the pregnancy test showing that you have a little bundle of joy heading your way, many of us will go running to read all the pregnancy books and those aimed at new parents. The hope is that they will provide instructions on how to get through the nine months carrying said bundle of joy. As well as just what you do with a newborn and gain any kind of insight into the world of parenting.
Whilst these books all have their own place in the world, they do tend to gloss over the realities of life as a mum. Giving a glimpse at things you might come across as well as that ever so helpful (not) knowledge of how to get your child to sleep, eat and sit on a potty! To balance out the knowledge, Siobhan Butel has released a book called ‘This Mum Malarkey’ which gives a truthful, yet funny take on what life is truly like as a mum – highlighting that you are not alone in eating cold fish fingers off your child’s plate when they have refused them for their tea.
This Mum Malarkey Review
A refreshing take on life as a parent, without glossing over the bad days, sleepless nights, tantrums and returning to work so that you can pee in peace. Packed with short digestible chapters that will have you nodding along if you have been through a similar parenting stage. Alongside laughing at Siobhan’s take on things, especially a weekend with Bertie Bear – which I’m sure is a nursery, preschool or school’s way of punishing parents by sending the class bear home.
Read, laugh and re-read after a bad day!
