If you are looking for a light hearted read that will have you laughing out loud about the mishaps of motherhood then this book is for you! I absolutely loved this book and have recommended it to many friends who aren't mummy's yet just for a good read.
Six Under Eight is Madeline West's memoir of motherhood with six children under the age of eight years old, picking up the story at the end of her pregnancy with twins (and four children). She is married to the celebrity chef Shannon Bennet and is an actress and media personality in her own right and as a result leads a busy, bustling and full life.
I am grateful for coming across this book not just for a fun read, but also for the encouragement and perspective shift it granted me when I was struggling with the adjustment from babyhood to toddlerhood with my first little one. FIRST little one, which was hilarious in the face of Madeline's adventures with SIX children under the age of eight!
I am also grateful for the laughs it afforded me and the light hearted approach to motherhood it revealed that I often struggle to live out.
I would highly recommend this to anyone really-it's a very fun book and I felt quite attached to Madeline and her family by the end of it the I wished I could keep reading! (Which is usually the case with a good book!)
