Finally, here's the book that tells the truth behind motherhood from the editor of Australia's favourite parenting magazine Practical Parenting, Mara Lee. Brutally honest and funny, Staying Mum tells you everything your friends and family won't! Far from maintaining the Hallmark material image of calm and serenity, this is a guide to the frenetic, sleep-deprived struggle to raise a child, navigating the cult of mothers' group and still having a life! Mara's adventures are the ones every mother has, but no mother talks about. Written for expectant mothers, new mothers and new fathers, Staying Mum is an honest, hilarious and ultimately uplifting look at the birth of a baby and how life will never be the same again.
