Win one of 20 copies of You Will (Probably) Survive by Lauren Dubois, thanks to Allen & Unwin.

A brilliantly honest guide to the highs and lows of parenthood from the author of award-winning blog The Thud.

‘Articulate and hilarious. This is my all-time favourite go-to reference for every mother.’ CHEZZI DENYER’Lauren Dubois’ entertaining musings on parenting have saved me from the “brink” multiple times. A must-read for the modern-day mother who adores her children – but is happy to acknowledge the journey can be equal parts heaven and hell!’ ERIN MOLANYou walk out of the maternity ward with your new baby, looking back over your shoulder, waiting for someone to stop you and tell you you’re not qualified to do this. But they don’t. They just wave you on your merry way and that’s it. It’s up to you now.

Suddenly you’re a mum. Suddenly you’re crying at sad news stories, you’re picturing all the horrible things that could happen to your baby when you walk down the street, you’re plotting your partner’s death over and over again.

You’re wondering why no one told you it would be this hard. Something’s changed in you but you’re trying to figure out what it is and if anyone else feels the same.

This book is NOT a parenting manual. You don’t need anyone else telling you what to do with your child. What you need is someone who’ll explain what the actual fallopian is happening to you. What exactly IS motherhood?

So here it is: the complete, honest, uncomfortable and glorious story of motherhood. From the science fiction weirdness of pregnancy, to the sleep torture inflicted by babies, to the crapshow that is negotiating with your megalomaniacal toddler – and all the magic that makes it worth it. These are the things no one told you about motherhood. The joyous, the maddening and the hilarious.

  • A low of parenthood for me was being so tired and down, I’ve yelled unnessarily and made them upset. Best but most challenging job in the world.


  • Low. My son running away because I changed the password to the Wi-Fi.


  • That moment when they first arrive and nothing else matters and you haven’t figured out yet you have no idea what you’re doing or that you will never sleep again.


  • A few days ago my 2 year old turned to me as he was going to bed and said “you are the best mummy in the world” I don’t think it gets any better than that!


  • One of my lows of parenting. Being full time working parents. We struggle with guilt and miss so much while we try to keep a roof over our four boys heads and keep up with paying for their sports, activities and keeping food in their bellies. The struggle is real and it sure hurts this Mumma’s heart. Especially right now in school holidays


  • Anytime I yell at my children I get the mum guilt afterwards – I hate it..
