Because I Said So


The era of the yummy mummy is over, and to celebrate this, Shari has taken a baby wipe to the glossy veneer of perfect parenting. 

Because I Said So is a collection of tales that every experienced, new or soon-to-be parent will relate to. Packed with toe curling moments, dramas, disasters and laughs, it beautifully captures the truth about motherhood in all its sleep-deprived, frazzled glory. 


For over a decade, Shari wrote a popular weekly newspaper column documenting the ups, dows and bio-hazardous laundry baskets of family life. All her favourite parenting stories are here, featuring superheroes in pull-up pants, embarrasing mistakes, disastrous summer holidays, childhood milestones, tear-jerking nativity plays, eight bouts of chickenpox, and many, many discussions that were finished with the ultimate parental sticky situation get-out clause... Because I Said So.
