When it comes to adult life, and parenthood, you will never be ready. So what happens when you hit your mid-thirties and still feel like an out-of-depth teen trapped in the slightly sagging skin suit of a tired and tested mother of two? Join comedian Sophie McCartney as she shares her journey from wild child to with child ... a never ending exercise in expectation vs reality (and the cleaning up of bodily fluids) she voyages deep into difficult and unchartered territories of mating, birthing, feral offspring, mums overdoing it at the watering hole, and the perilous viper nest of the school WhatsApp group. Overwhelmed by love, but exhausted by life, and with no idea if the 'five-second rule' applies to hummus, she, like most of us, has 100% NOT 'got this' - unless, of course, referring to parasitic organisms. With laugh out loud humour and eye-watering honesty, Sophie shows how whether you've had a day full of whining or a night full of wine, there's joy to be had in the perfectly imperfect wild ride into parenthood. Welcome to the jungle.
