So, I was thinking today that I would like to read a humorous book about being a parent of toddlers/babies, as this is what I do all day.
I mean a book of fiction that will make me laugh and offer me a funny perspective on my life, not a book about how to do it or what to expect etc
Are there any such books/authors?
Nothing cheesy or vomit inducing like About A Boy, or too sad like the Boy in the Striped Pajamas.
Something more like Adrian Mole, but for parents (I loved the Cappuccino Years which is coincidentally about his years as a single parent!) or Wilt (Tom Sharpe) for parents (I've read the ones where Wilt and Eva he has quadruplets - very funny).
I have no non cheesy suggestions but I found The secret life of a slummy mummy very funny- it is cheesy and is about school years really but I read sensible fiction, history and classics usually so feel justified in reading this.
The two books by mel gieldroy, one about her pregnancy and the second about her life with a toddler...i wept laughing and made snorty pig noises into my coffee. Absolute brilliance, one of my best reads ever and so, so funny.
