We all know that parenthood can be brilliant – yes, blissful – er, sometimes, but also HARD. In order to get through it you have to 1) laugh 2) be honest about the bad days, and c) celebrate the good (with wine usually – or gin).
Busy mum of 2 young boys, Giovanna Fletcher (a novelist, TV presenter and actress) knows this and has gained an enormous and faithful following of fans by opening her life through her youtube channel Giovanna’s World. And now she’s written a book about her parenting journey too.
Happy Mum, Happy Baby is a brilliantly insightful, funny and honest account told in Giovanna’s inimitable warm, witty style. Forget any pre-conceptions of smug celebrity parenting books you might have – in this no holds barred, completely relatable look at life in the Fletcher household (Giovanna is married to Tom Fletcher from McFly) she shares all the trials, tribulations, tantrums (and total bliss!) that come with this mad, joyous, grey-hair inducing juggling act called motherhood. With chapters like ‘Getting my baps out,’ ‘The tale of the jelly belly and other bodily wobbles’ and ‘Jet lag is a bitch’, Giovanna bravely opens up about everything that’s happened to her since becoming a mum to her two gorgeous boys Buzz and Buddy. She’s also quick to point out this isn’t an advice book: it’s simply her motherhood account, told her way. As she writes in her dedication it’s: ‘For all the mums, out there doing their best – failing and succeeding on a daily basis.’ And we’ll raise a glass to that!
