About the Author
Sarah Turner lives in Devon with her husband and their three boys. She started writing as The Unmumsy Mum in 2013 after becoming disillusioned with the other parenting literature she had read online. Everybody seemed to be coping so well! Where were the tales of mums tearing their hair out after yet another sleepless night and endless re-runs of Peppa Pig? Surely there were others out there who were trying but ultimately failing to live up to the Supermum ideal they'd bought into? She made a vow then and there to document the good, the bad and the ugly of parenting, and her blog (www.theunmumsymum.co.uk) was born. You can follow Sarah’s everyday parenting adventures on Facebook, Instagram and Twitter (@theunmumsymum).

So much of Sarah’s life resonated with me as a mum of two boys just like Sarah (well she had two but as you’ll see by her bio she’s got three now!). At points I was sat nodding my head (the kitchen planning), giggling (The Willy Show) and then there was the fallic mushrooms….it’s like she’s read my mind, taken my life and tweaked it so I know it’s my life but no one else does…
It’s not just the parenting stuff I could identify with, I too can go online with one purpose in mind and 2 hours later still not done it because something (normally social media ) distracts me….
She made me feel like my family life was normal. All mums compare themselves across the school playground, at the soft play, on line, but the honesty of Sarah’s writing made me think “I’m doing ok” as a parent. She also made me realise that yes it’s not just my kids who say the funniest and probably inappropriate things…..

I have to say I loved the random entries from Jude and James. Jude’s take on a day with Mummy is just comical and perfectly pitched, it’s just how I imagine a toddler’s logic working! As for James, I get the impression child care isn’t as easy as he imagined
It’s a bit different to my usual fictional reads as there is no real conclusion; it’s the year in the life of the Turners. A very entertaining year by all accounts. I didn’t realise this was the second book in the series and yes I have got the first one, so I’ll be heading back to read that and also the short compilation The Unmumsy Mums subtitled “A Collection of Your Hysterical Stories from the Frontline of Parenting“.
If you’ve not ventured into the work of The Unmumsy Mum, it is really funny, brutally honest and well worth a read. I defy any parent to read this and not identify with at least some of what happens in the Turner household.
Thank you for your honesty, Sarah
Recently in an interview someone asked Sarah whether she was worried her sons would be upset with her in the future over the information they shared about them. I am confident that if they are upset, that when they become fathers that not only will they 'get it', but they will realise their mother's writing probably talked a lot of mums back from a dark brink.
