First time mum/referee/ sleeve snot wiper to a wild toddler. Designated household bum changer. Blogging about this motherhood malarkey from a refreshingly honest and unfiltered perspective.

Young, Dumb, First-Time Mum: My book out now!


So, I've been absent on the blog recently and this is why - I wrote a book! Yup, I finally decided what the heck? Why not give it a go?
I've been documenting my parenting journey over the last two years on the blog and finally decided to compile it together into a short novel. I've been working tirelessly to bring to life my work into a final finished edition. After months, and much procrastination, and many defeating, and come-to-expect rejections from publishers, I took a leap and self-published with Amazon.

Young, Dumb, First-Time Mum is my novel where I share my experiences as a first-time mum to my son. Uncensored and refreshingly honest, I wanted to create a voice for all Mums out there who were feeling submerged in the roller-coaster of parenting. I found my new role as a mother, exhausting, overwhelming and, painfully, lonely. It made me ponder of all the other first (or third time around) mums who were sitting alone at home, feeling barricaded away from the rest of the world.

From colic to sleepless nights; mum guilt to loss of identity; separation to mental health, I wanted to write my honest account of motherhood and to break this unfeasible expectation placed on parents to do everything so perfectly. I wanted to assure other mums that they're not as alone as they feel, they're not failing and that most of what they are ashamed of feeling, is actually perfectly, normal. 

This short book is just a small pick me up to help parents everywhere relate and revel in the whirlwind of smelly nappies and toddler tantrums, loneliness and an assurance that things do get better!

You can order Young, Dumb, First-Time Mum on paperback for £4.50 or download the Kindle version for just £1.99!

I hope you enjoy and keep your eyes peeled for book no.2! The second novel in my parenting trilogy woes. Coming 2020.
