But this is a book that might, if you're not too emotionally battered - and can see through the permanent eye twitch - help you laugh a little more than you cry. But that's not guaranteed. Nothing is really guaranteed as a nurturer of the small people. Here is one couple's take on the horrors and humour of modern parenting told from his side and hers: honest, sad and laugh-out-loud funny. From deciding to try for a baby to the harrowing realities of miscarrying, from pregnancy and labour to bringing baby home and trying to reconcile the old life with the new - this book will speak to anyone with a small human of their own or hoping to take that fateful step.

Enhanced descriptions from Syndetics:

This isn't just a book for the mamas out there; this is for the papas too. Join The Pukkas on their journey through parenthood. PARENTING THE SH*T OUT OF LIFE integrates The Pukkas mutually shared, but sometimes very separate journeys, towards becoming a mother and father. From deciding to try for a baby to the harrowing realities of miscarrying and from splashdown and labour to bringing baby home - parents all over the country will cry at, laugh with and relate to the raw honesty and hilarious writing in this book, offering some light relief from the tumultuous parental storm.
