Parenting Sh*T Out of Life
From the minds behind the wildly successful parenting blog MotherPukka.com and the creators of the Dirty Mother Pukka podcast, comes a memoir told from both parents' perspectives that doesn't scrimp on the shits, giggles or tears that accompany life with a small human (or small humans). MOTHER PUKKA AND PAPA PUKKA at last offer you this: a book that will not help you grow or raise a human successfully, but a book that might, if you're not too emotionally battered - and can see past the permanent eye twitch - help you laugh a little more than you cry. This is one couple's take on the horrors and humour of modern parenting told from his side and hers: honest, sad and laugh-out-loud funny. It will speak to anyone with a child or children of their own - or who are hoping to take that monumental step. It may not be easy and you might have no idea what you are doing, but as the Pukkas demonstrate, with a bit of teeth-gnashing, tongue-chewing and joke-cracking, you, too, can be parenting the sh*t out of life.
