9780099509363: Diary of a Hapless Househusband

When father-of-two Sam loses his job, he reluctantly agrees to stay at home while his wife returns to work. Secretly thinking this whole parenthood thing a breeze of leisurely jaunts to the park, reading the paper while the children play quietly and occasionally attending a civilised play date or two, Sam quickly realises just what exactly it means to be a stay-at-home parent.

Inevitably, domestic mayhem ensues. Just trying to get dressed in the morning and out of the house without going to A&E is a feat, as is managing the children's complicated play-date schedule while fending off the unwelcome advances of Jodhpur Mum at the playground. And Sam's foolproof 72-step Childcare Programme doesn't seem remotely up to the task.

Desperate to get his life back on track, Sam seizes upon a variety of mad schemes, but just as things look like they're beginning to fall into place, he makes a very surprising discovery ...

Review:

"A very very funny and often touching account of one man's struggle to try and run Planet Home. This book should be compulsory reading for every bloke who wonders what his wife is making all that fuss about -- and for every woman who has wanted to kill that bloke." ( Allison Pearson)

"This book actually made me laugh out loud and I stayed up way past my bedtime to finish it! A funny and different take on parenthood, well paced, with believable characters and perceptive insight into the chaos that often surrounds young children." ( My Weekly)

"It is a hilarious read and so true to life, it should be compulsory reading for all husbands." ( www.bettybookmark.co.uk)

"laugh out loud" ( The Sun)

Book Description:

An hilarious and very different take on parenthood, for all who loved The Playground Mafia and I Don't Know How She Does It.
