Popular blogger Emily Writes gives words of encouragement to sleep-deprived parents everywhere.

With two small boys, both non-sleepers, Emily finds herself awake in the wee small hours night after night. Her writing is often done then, and she offers her own often hilarious and always heart-warming experiences to other exhausted parents. She describes the frustrations as well as the tender moments of real parenting, as opposed to what you thought it was going to be like, or what well-meaning advice-givers tell you it should be like.

A must-have for all new parents and parents-to-be.

Emily's blogs have been wildly popular, as have her on-line columns with New Zealand Woman's Weekly and The New Zealand Herald.

    With her great sense of humour and beautiful style, I felt like the author was telling the story of my life as a Mother. Every parent will relate and laugh.
