Kathrine at Mummy Diaries
It's Day two of the big ole Cocktails at Naptime Book Tour and Emma is over at Mummy Diaries. If Mummy Diaries' intro is anything to go by, it's hilarious (but then yummy mummy Kathrine always is).
"From the moment you shoot your precious kid out of your now-oversized pachanga every Tom, Dick, Harry and Aunt Petunia will be giving you all sorts of unsolicited advice and disapproving looks on everything from:
- breast vs bottle feeding (holy moley is that a minefield),
- discipline (“thank you Aunt Petunia I shall keep it in mind to belt the crap out of the little shit with a wooden spoon..yes, yes I know your parents did it and you turned out just fine”)
- and jumping back into the sack with your man love. For what it’s worth I had absolutely no interest in fondling my man-love’s sack for quite some time. And I don’t feel bad about it either.
You take it all in – or let it all slip out the other ear, despite the fact that you are wishing your eyes could turn into lasers and burn holes in their know-it-all big bums.
Everyone though, needs a little helping hand sometimes and the first year of motherhood is a particularly hard one, what with your new vagina, breasts and husband salivating and lying in wait to jump your bones at the all important 6 week mark, not to mention that whole newborn baby business.
With that in mind, bloggers Emma Kaufmann – Mommy has a headache and Gillian Martin The Missy M Missives decided to collaborate to write a REAL, practical and fucking funny guide to the first year of motherhood, choc full of useful and refreshingly honest revelations about what to expect when you become mommy and aptly titled Cocktails at Naptime. And just like it’s authors sneaky convict ancestors, Cocktails at Naptime has managed to weasel it’s way onto Aussie shores! Yaye for us!"
