The Fat Ladies Club : Facing the First Five Years
A no-holds-barred account of what it is like to become a mother for the first time: getting it right, getting it wrong, the guilt and giggles. In a refreshingly open and intimate style, the "Fat Ladies Club" talk about all the issues that every new mum faces. How do you deal with a toddler who will only eat chocolate? How do you juggle a second and third child into your hectic life? What do you do when your potty trained child does a wee on a fake tree in a restaurant? Will you ever get a full night's sleep again, without the entire family ending up in one bed? What happens to your sex and social lives? And how on earth will you cope when you eventually have to wave goodbye to your child on their first day of school?
