A year in the life of a playground mother by Christie Barlow

A year in the life of a playground mother by Christie Barlow


A year in the life of a playground mother Ever had the pleasure of collecting your children from the school playground? Even if you haven’t this is a hilarious must read. A month by month comical tale of a young mother fighting for her place in the world against the backdrop of the Playground Mafia. As her life unfolds and she takes us through from one amusing anecdote to another the characters come to life.

There is Penelope who has a lot more going on in her life than she bargained for and Mrs Noland who has a lot less than she claims, not to mention Rupert who is a VERY busy man. With Mrs High School Musical, The International Sex God and The Frisky Pensioner, the characters are undeniably fascinating and leave you compelled to read more. Who knew one false move in the playground, one step in the wrong direction, or smile at the wrong person could lead to such complications?

The witty one liners and side splitting stories will keep you amused from beginning to end. Lively, and entertaining, a hilarious comedy that every playground mother can relate to.

My Thoughts:

This book was fabulous, such a nice light hearted read, which was very funny the whole way through. Christie has written well to include some horrifying moments but also some real laugh out loud moments. I can see many parents being able to relate to many of the incidents that happen and they will be able to see the funny side of them even if they weren’t laughing at the time. Am now looking forward to Christie’s next book.
