Parenting the Sh*t out of Life
I love when you see photo’s of people’s living rooms looking like show homes with the roaring fires, clean spaces and immaculate coffee tables with a gorgeous selection of books stacked neatly in the corner or in that fan shape. In my head that’s my living room but the reality is very different even when I try and keep the coffee table clean and dust free!
So, the coffee table books. I do have a bookshelf in my living room with all my favourite books and which will sometimes end up on the table when I’ve been sat reading them but I just love picking up a book, something that I have an interest in as I’m not really one for stories as such.
My book selection includes makeup books by Bobbi Brown and Rae Morris, The Goddess Guide, a couple of autobiography’s and yes, I’ll put it out here I do have the Katie Price books. I know, I know but they are a giggle. Anyway, a couple of weeks ago I had my baby shower and one of my friends brought me this brilliantly funny book – Parenting the Sh*t out of Life
I have been one of those first time expectant mum’s who have been very laid back and thought what will be will be, it’s out of my control anyway so why get stressed! I think the truth is at 34 weeks I have only just started to get my head around the fact that I’m going to be a parent responsible for a little person and making sure I feed them and don’t leave them anywhere. Up until now I’ve not given it much thought but I did say to Mick (my Mr) ‘Seriously, you’re going to have to help me as I haven’t a clue what I’m doing’ He just looked at me then started laughing but reassured me saying I would be a great mum and I’ll have it covered. My response was ‘we’ll have it covered’!
Back to the book, Mother Pukka and Pappa Pukka have it right. They tell you how it is and don’t sugar coat anything so you’re not being lead into a false sense of baby bliss. This is what I need, I need the facts and all that comes with it. I just want to thank Anna and Matt for this bible and keeping it all so real.
I’ll post an update of my personal journey once the little bambino makes an appearance as so far it’s been one heck of a journey but I’ve got this, well I hope I do! Let’s Parent the Sh*t out of Life x
