“When my husband comes home, if the kids are still alive, I figure Iâve done my job.” Roseanne Barr

A bumper compilation of humorous quotes about mums and motherhood. From celebrated matriarchal types, to sons, daughters, and partners; everyone has something to say about their experiences of mothering or being mothered. A great gift!

Synopsis

Mothers' Wit by Allison Vale and Alison Rattle

Mamma mia! Didnât think mums could make you laugh? Think again. Mothersâ Wit is full of classic one-liners from a rich variety of red-hot mammas such as Victoria Wood, Joan Rivers, Roseanne and Marge Simpson.

Covering all the joys of motherhood, these celebrated matriarchs deliver belly laughs and offer pearls of maternal wisdom on such topics as morning sickness and strrretch marks, playground politics and raising hormonal teenagers, frenzied mealtimes and dreary household chores.

Complemented with sharp insights from family members – those sons, daughters, and partners to whom mum devotes the best years of her life, Mothersâ Wit will give every mother the one thing she really needs (apart from an uninterrupted nightâs sleep): a good laugh.

Warm, witty, wise and winning, if only this book could also spit on its hanky and wipe your face it would be just like Mum: perfect.
