A GUIDE FOR EVERY PARENT-TO-BE AND EXCITED RELATIVE
"Mum's the Word" is an unflinching account of one mother's first months with a new baby, and is written to support other new parents about to embark on the crazy journey to becoming a family.
Part how-to guide, part secret diary, it brings comfort and companionship through this extraordinary time of change.
THERE IS SIMPLY NOTHING MORE OVERWHELMING THAN BEING A FIRST-TIME PARENT.
When EK Wills gives birth to her daughter Candy, she has no concept of just how life-altering motherhood will be. Throughout the first year of Candy's life, she and her husband Simon delight, despair, and sometimes simply endure the challenges and joys of being first-time parents in this honest ode to motherhood.
The love that the family feels for their new baby in no way prepares them for the changes to their lives, or the need to adapt their expectations of actually being a new parent.
From the struggle of transitioning from woman to mother, and the shock of sleep deprivation and ensuing sleep aids, settling, training, and eventual rest, through to the relationship between husband and wife, this easy-to-read mix of insight and memoir shows both the true cost, and inestimable value, of parenting.
