This book is not a how-to-guide. It won't tell you how to get your baby to sleep, how to deal with toddler tantrums, how to be a good parent, a cool parent or even a renegade parent. It is a book about parenting that contains absolutely no useful advice whatsoever.
Instead it shares beautifully honest anecdotes and illustrations from the parenting frontline that demonstrate it is perfectly possible to love your children with the whole of your heart whilst finding them incredibly irritating at the same time.
My best pal, Fiona gifted me this book when I had my bambino last year, and I've read it so many times. Sometimes cover to cover - sometimes just a quick chapter. It'll make you laugh out loud a lot, crave gin a lot and give you comfort that, you aren't the only mother/ parent out there finding this baby wrangling thing difficult. I found so much joy in it.
From pregnancy to starting school, Hurrah For Gin takes you through the exciting, frustrating, infuriating and wonderful whirlwind of parenthood, offering solidarity and a friendly hug after a tough day.
Best served with gin.
