You're So Mummy




Set aside the Gina, silence the baby-whisperers and shelve the Jo Frost manuals. This is the book to make new mothers feel better about themselves.

Set aside the Gina, silence the baby-whisperers and shelve the Jo Frost manuals. This is the book to make new mothers feel better about themselves.
No tips, no advice, no routines, no philosophies - just an honest account of two writers' adventures in the twenty-first century Motherland.
Alex and Sarah are two mothers and lifelong friends, whose hilarious book is the perfect antidote to all the smug, scolding, impossible-to-achieve tomes of advice that are passed around baby yoga classes up and down the country.
You're So Mummy is the kind of funny and frank memoir about motherhood that Sarah and Alex wish they could have read in their early days of being a parent.
%%%You're So Mummy is an honest take on 21st-century motherhood that sticks two finger-puppets up at parenting manuals.
This isn't a book mothers can turn to for advice. It's not going to tell you how to make your kid sleep, or how to get them into a good school, or anything useful at all in fact. Instead it's a hilarious look at what's happening inside the minds of once-normal women who now find themselves in charge of small people.
Lifelong best friends Sarah Thompson and Alex Manson-Smith agree that motherhood is the best thing that's happened to either of them, but wanted to read a book that acknowledged what a royal pain in the arse it can be. So that's what they've written.
From not having sex to losing it over food, You're So Mummy covers the real issues confronting today's mothers. Whether you're an overwhelmed first-timer or a grizzled mum who's been around the park too many times, You're So Mummy will make you howl in grateful recognition.
