Welcome to the world of a typical mom!
Why Mom Wants To Get Drunk won the British Book Awards in the Book Debut of the Year category.
Dad loves gadgets, son Peter and daughter Jane are making fire and trying to kill each other, and mom just needs a break …
Mom turns 39. She was sure that at 40 she would be an elegant refined lady who speaks French, builds a successful career and knows a lot about art and literature. But education was not useful to her, and she was stuck in an ordinary part-time position, because it is more convenient to look after the children.
Mom writes a diary about what worries any mother: how difficult it is to raise children, what to do with the fear of being a bad parent, how not to “live only for your children” and how not to lose your sense of humor even in the most difficult moments, because life is too short, to take it seriously.
Jill Sims lives in Scotland with her husband, two children and two Border Terriers because one is not enough of a hassle.
She loves hanging out on social networks, drinking wine, trying to regain lost youth and looking for a dog when she suddenly decides to take a walk.
Her books, Why Mom Wants to Get Drunk, Why Mom Frequently Swears, and Why Mom Was Bored with Everything are Sunday Times bestsellers.
