M is for Mummy by Katy Cox
About The Book
Lucy had it all: an exciting career, a rock-star husband, great friends, a size ten waist, and pelvic floor muscles that could crack a walnut. And then, she had kids.
Since giving birth to her second child, Lucy’s life is totally unrecognisable. A ‘flab-alanche’ hangs over the top of her jeans, the romance in her marriage is officially dead and so is the career it took her years to build. Instead of playing the cello behind superstars at packed-out arenas, Lucy now spends most days mopping up broccoli vomit whilst listening to her four-year-old recite tedious facts about the gall bladder.
It’s much easier to be a mum when you know that you are not alone in your struggles; so I have to say that I really enjoyed a refreshing and funny book that doesn’t make mums fit in any box, only to be real!
Lucy is the mum we all are (or have been); with struggles, problems and a need to fit in the moulds that society wants to put us in, but that we don’t really know how to.
This is a book impossible to not love, laugh and feel connected with; the struggles of being a mother are there but also the satisfaction of watching your little ones grow up happy and loved.
Don’t get upset with Lucy in the beginning, she has a lot of problems in her life and don’t really know how to start living again; having two children is not easy and one of them autistic will make the life more complicated. But Lucy will have to search for her inner patience and strength and hold again the rails of her life.
I recommend this book to all the mothers and women who want to be one; don’t be afraid of what you’ll read, just be prepared to sometimes feel lost and sad; but also feel happy and rewarded. We’ve all been there but don’t expect to get easy, this new you will stay forever!
