Lauren Sams is the hilarious best friend you haven't met yet' Maggie Alderson
There's life Before Baby and life After Baby. Any idiot knows that. I knew that. Except I didn't know what life After Baby would really be like...Georgie Henderson is discovering that in the twenty-first century being a Good Working Mum means answering emails at midnight while you puree vegetables, line up play dates and French lessons for your four-month-old daughter. Georgie's ex, Jase, gets 100 per cent of the credit for 5 per cent of the work, and her best friend, Nina, is on a 'self-discovery' journey that involves a young bartender and a plan to become an artisanal florist. And all her mum wants is for her to find a man. Preferably the one who is the father of her child. And Georgie? She just wants a nap, which she's quickly discovering is harder to come by than nuts at a preschool.
