The beginning of this book, i just found it brilliantly funny. I normally read mainly crime fiction but fancied a bit of a change, and it certainly was different.
No nonsense and told as it is. a blogging mummy - well it just seems the norm nowadays if you have something to say then blog about it.

I laughed out load and on more than one occasion thought oh i like that saying, i'll remember that one - then i'd find another lol.
As the book went on I found it a little repetitive in parts, but for something different to read it was an enjoyable easy read.

I had to learn the hard way that blatant honesty may not always be the best policy... not if you want to keep your kids.
"Musings of a 20-something Mom" is a lesson on how NOT to blog, unless you want to piss off your friends, family, and get a pack of crazies chasing after you; and a reminder that when it comes to parenting, there's always going to be someone out there saying "you're doing it wrong!
