"The real parenting book for real parents."
5 stars"
Purchased on Mighty Ape

I'm not an aspirational Pinterest Instagram mum and neither is anyone I know. This is the book for us. It's real – it captures the love, the humour, the stress, the mess, and the marvel of being a parent.

Vital reading for everyone. Emily puts words around the feelings of parents, helping us understand ourselves and our children, and gives insight to those who don't yet have or don't want to have kids.

There's no preaching, there's no guilt, there's just real descriptions of real great parenting that will make you laugh till you cry and cry while laughing. Buy this, give it to everyone you know.

5 stars"
Purchased on Mighty Ape

Emily's writing is so beautiful, heartfelt and funny. Everyone should read this, it's not just for parents. I look forward to more books from Emily Writes.

Popular blogger Emily Writes gives words of encouragement to sleep-deprived parents everywhere.

With two small boys, both non-sleepers, Emily finds herself awake in the wee small hours night after night. Her writing is often done then, and she offers her own often hilarious and always heart-warming experiences to other exhausted parents. She describes the frustrations as well as the tender moments of real parenting, as opposed to what you thought it was going to be like, or what well-meaning advice-givers tell you it should be like.

A must-have for all new parents and parents-to-be.

Emily's blogs have been wildly popular, as have her on-line columns with New Zealand Woman's Weekly and The New Zealand Herald.
