This book was so funny! I was completely unaware that the author has a Tiktok called Mammy Banter and apparently she is a viral sensation. I can understand that after reading this book. There are toddler and primary school-aged children in the book so there are a lot of references to pee, wee, and poo but that is the reality of being a mum. I liked that the author showed what is really behind the funny, self-doubt, anxiety, and fear of abandonment to name but a few.

Anyone who’s had to do a full-on Christmas while wrangling a job, kids, a house, and unexpected visitors (while pregnant no less) will relate to what Tara is going through. The best bits were the parts where Nathan and Jax find their elf on the shelf (named wee (because he is small or pees a lot I do not know) donkey) in his crazy situations.

This is a fast-paced read filled with the crazy mania of the holiday season and is the second book featuring this family. It is definitely a stand-alone but I liked this enough to want to read the first one.

This title is currently available for purchase.
