When it comes to adult life and parenthood, you’ll never be ready. So what happens when you hit your mid-thirties and still feel like a lost teenager trapped in the slightly sagging skin suit of a tired and tried mother of two?
Join comedian Sophie McCartney as she shares her journey from wild child to child with child … an endless exercise in waiting against reality (and cleansing body fluids) moms overdoing it to the point of water and the dangerous nest of vipers from the school’s WhatsApp group.
Overwhelmed by love, but exhausted by life, and not knowing if the “five second rule” applies to hummus, she, like most of us, doesn’t have 100% “that” – unless, of course, referring to parasitic organisms.
With a burst of humor and breathtaking honesty, Sophie shows how, whether you’ve had a day full of whining or a night full of wine, there is exhilaration in the perfectly imperfect wild race to parenthood. Welcome to the jungle.
