I'm Jen Brister: stand-up comedian, middle-aged adolescent, and mum. But not that mum - I'm the other one. Confused? Two years ago, my partner (a woman - we're not solicitors) gave birth to twins. (I know! Believe me, I'm still reeling myself.) Like every new parent, I had absolutely no clue what I was doing. Add 'gay' and 'non-biological' to the mix and what do you get? Not a weird box of detergent, but a panicked beige lesbian desperately googling, 'Will my babies love me?' at 3 a.m. A very funny, very honest look at parenting life, from IVF awfulness to crying over the pages of sleep training manuals.


This is a book for any parent who feels they don't fit the mould of a traditional family. 'Damned funny. You'll find the pages of this book brimming with rich and wonderful proof' Hannah Gadsby 'A side-splittingly honest look at the grim realities of same-sex parenting' Diva

Hysterical, important, moving, wonderful' Sara Pascoe.
