This Glorious Mess
About This Show
This is not the place for "perfect parents". This is a weekly look at parenting as it truly is - confusing, exhausting, inspiring, completely full of surprises and very messy. Join Andrew Daddo, broadcaster, author of children's books and father of three, and Holly Wainwright, editor, writer and mother of two, as they unpack what parents are really talking about. From toddlers to teenagers, it's all the disasters and delights of parenting, made real.

Do you tail them to make sure they don't touch the fairy bread? Or do you let them run wild into a land of cakes and jelly snakes?Plus we speak to a midwife who has delivered over 10,000 babies, and ask her about some of the most unusual things she's seen in the birthing suite. She also answers whether or not you really need an Enya CD playing (hint, it's a no...).
