Realistic Parenting with Cocktails at Naptime

Cocktails at Naptime

I have just started reading  yet another great book to review called Cocktails at Naptime - 'A woefully inadequate guide to early motherhood." And even though I haven't even finished I wanted to say how much I love ti already    - it is so funny and true.

From the girls Cocktails at Naptime Blog:-

 "Cocktails at Naptime is a laugh-out-loud, utterly realistic examination of all the things that can happen to your mind, your body, your partner and your relatives after the birth of a new baby."

It is written by two lovely ladies Gillian Martin and Emma Kauffmann who don't hold back any punches and write with such humour and wit. The girls aptly describe how tough motherhood can be a times - as much as we love our children of course! - and how we sometimes just need a break from it all.

Stuff perfectionism or attempting to be perfect. There's no such thing and it is downright unhealthy. We are all different - with varying coping skills - all you can do you best at any given time  - and this book allows you to embrace this concept wholeheartedly.....I can't wait to read more of cocktails at naptime. Laughing is good for the soul and there's plenty to giggle about in this book that's for sure!
