Spot on and Pitch Perfect,
This review is from: The Secret Diary of a New Mum (aged 43 1/4) (Paperback)
I am a reader and also a "mature" mother so when i saw this at Waterstones i had to buy and almost missed my stop i was so engaged by the familiar circumstances and comforting revelations. I stopped reading mommy books a while ago as my kids are a bit older now but you never grow out of the issue of being a "primawhatchamacallit" (older mom!) so this book is timeless. I just finished some heavy stuff so this book was a real delight and reprieve from those "how to" books that try to tell you how to be a perfect parent. I rarely get through a book in a week never mind 24 hours but this was just the tonic i needed to remind myself that i'm not the only one with these issues. I wish more people would write how things are rather than how they want them to be. More books like this please and the world will be a less judgmental place.
