Just Like Mum Says : A Book of Mum's Wit Hardback
'Having a baby is like watching two very inefficient removal men trying to get a very large sofa through a very small doorway, only in this case you can't say, 'Oh, sod it, bring it through the French windows' - Victoria Wood. 'It's not easy being a mother. If it were, fathers would do it' - Dorothy, The Golden Girls.
Motherhood is a tough job and a serious business. Which means there's all the more reason to step back and see the funny side of it, and "Just Like Mum Says" is packed with humorous insights and wry observations on all matters maternal.Tracing the course of mothering through pregnancy, the terrible twos, the teenage years and the empty nest, "Just Like Mum Says" includes wise and witty words from celebrated matriarchs from Marge Simpson to Sharon Osbourne, and Victoria Beckham to Victoria Wood.
In short, "Just Like Mum Says" amuses, delights, enlightens and touches the heart - just like Mum. 'When my husband comes home, if the kids are still alive, I figure I've done my job' - Roseanne.
