Keep Calm and Mother On: 21 Stories from Mothers with

A mother goes through so much. Just when you think you've managed to get the world's most difficult tot to sleep through the night, he starts rejecting the bottle. As they get older, it's not about sleeping or feeding; it's about friends and values. And, how many of us feel like crushing our own skulls when we coach our children in their homework or when we have to force them to practise the piano? And let's not even talk about the dark teenage years, when your once-innocent and carefree babe, who loved to swirl around in pink dresses, now insists on wearing black only. But there's more from babe to teen to young adult to entering National Service and eventually getting married and having children of their own, Keep Calm and Mother On presents the full range of experiences a mother goes through. With contributions from 21 mums with children aged one to 21, some stories are bound to make you laugh out loud, while others may warm your heart and give you much food for thought. Through it all, the call of this book is to 'Keep Calm and Mother On'. They do grow up, and it is all worth it in the end!
