Summary

As a busy mum with a newborn and a toddler, viral sensation Laura Clery has plenty to say about the ups and downs of pregnancy, childbirth and being the best mum she can be while also balancing career success, sobriety, marriage and creativity.

With her engaging and witty voice, she pulls back the curtain on all aspects of her offbeat life, including dealing with addiction and virtual AA meetings during a pandemic and maintaining healthy relationships with her son, daughter, husband and most importantly, herself. Laura’s life has changed a great deal since she wrote Idiot, but what hasn’t changed is her ability to celebrate the laugh-out-loud moments of everyday life and share the tough times with humour, honesty and heart.

It's good

Brilliantly put together, I really enjoyed it! I was a little uncomfortable hearing the sexual content read aloud (to my surprise) but you get used to it pretty quickly

Absolutely brilliant!

An awesome story of marriage, motherhood and nuerodivergence!

I hope those who are neurodivergent and those that aren't read this book, I shines a light into parenting children on the spectrum and being neurodivergent themselves.

First book was better

I felt like there seemed to be no clear direction with the book, just several different stories mashed together, which the first book had a clear direction and was interesting. I do really love Laura and listening to her content but I did struggle to enjoy this. I feel like it would have been better with one topic not several so it could have been expanded and then to me jt would have flowed better as there wasnt much structure! however it is always interesting to hear about different aspects of her life

Hilariously honest and refreshingly vulnerable

Truly enjoyed every minute of this book. I laughed, I cried, I laughed again. I resonated with so much and learnt things. In a weird way, Laura feels like a close, personal friend whose stories I can't get enough of.

Awesome

I absolutely loved this book, but then again I loved her last book so it’s really not surprising. Laura and Stephen are so inspirational and their children are beautiful. Really great listen really enjoyed it.

Well read by Laura

Laura reading this story added to the enjoyment for me. I was surprised when it finished so soon as I loved listening to her. She is inspirational. Can't wait for her next book.

I Love Laura

God bless you Laura for being you. Wow, we have almost an identical life in so many ways (except I haven't manifested a Tesla like you yet.... Everything about these audible books by Laura are great except the bit recommending A Course in Miracles... wow, I too was completely enraptured by Louise L Hay (another good one is Florence Scovel Schinn... the original before Louise!) however, I have since learnt that these are a path away from the truth which is truly in.... (wait for it... )

Jesus Christ!

Gotcha! Bam! No seriously tho. I'm so looking forward to the book you write which tells us all about Jesus

...who is the God you are praying to, you just don't yet know it.
Love u so much Laura, from a fellow Neuro divergent crazy creative drug addict who loves life down under ❤

As unique as Laura

I would recommend this book and I like that Laura Clery narrates it herself. She does a great job and you can notice her exceptional skills.
Overall the first book was better - as usual most firsts are - but I really admire the way she shares stories that are private - including the diagnosis of her son and many unpleasant experiences.

Insane stories

This is a very inspiring book of how Laura picked herself up and succeeded in life despite lots of challenges. Never giving up. Very relatable with lots of “what in the world” moments. Also lots of swearing and bearing her soul. I loved the honest and enlightening chapter about Alfie and his autism diagnosis.

Loved it

I really enjoyed this book after accidentally buying the original book again first I listened to both.
It’s funny and warm and helps me understand addiction better which way to many of my friends suffer from.
