Product Description
A laugh-out-loud, deeply relatable memoir challenging our unrealistic expectations of motherhood and life, from the Instagram sensation and host of Beyond the Likes podcast

In a world of highly curated Instagram pages and unrealistic expectations of motherhood, Amy Gerard is a gust of fresh air. She does not sugarcoat the fact that her life with her husband and three small children (read: tiny bosses) is a chaotic rollercoaster - seatbelts absolutely required.

But she's learned that life very rarely matches up to our expectations, and it's more helpful (and fun) to embrace the warts-and-all beauty, pain and hilarity of it all. From birth and parenting to marriage and friendship; sex and holidays to family and careers, Amy confesses the wildly hopeful expectations she once held - and candidly reveals how the reality of her life has utterly unravelled them.

A must-read for mums or anyone who has ever compared their own life to an Instagram post, this uplifting and hilarious memoir will make you stop to smell the roses and appreciate what you've got.

'Candid, funny and heartfelt. Just like Amy.'
Sally Obermeder

If you want to feel seen and understood as a mother and woman, this is the book for you. Amy says it just how it is, without holding back! So many belly laughs and tender family moments are captured in these pages.'
Jules Sebastian

'A refreshingly raw and bullshit-free portrayal of motherhood. I laughed, I cried and peed my pants a little. Amy is a star.'
Sean Szeps

'Helpful, heartfelt and so, so funny.'
Leigh Campbell
