Is it Bedtime Yet?

Parenting ... the Hilarious, the Hair-raising, the Heart-breaking




A collection of writings on being a parent in Aotearoa - from hilarious to heart-breaking.

The experience of parenthood is different for everyone. And every day can be different too. Read a hilarious and moving collection of perspectives from the well-loved Emily Writes and her friends. Some of them are experienced writers, others have put pen to paper for the first time. If it takes a village to raise a child, then this writing comes from the whole village. Yet every experience is a real one, and you will feel the joy, the horror, the love and the heart-ache as you read about birthday parties, vasectomies, hugs, hospitals and, of course, sleepless nights.
