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.

You Can Run. But You Can't Hide.

Hold on to your activewear, we're talking to a couple who are doing 100 triathlons in 100 days. And as if that's not enough, they're bringing their 8-month-old baby along for the ride. If you saw a little boy bursting out of his stubbies, would you say something? Teachers are now being asked to dob in obese kids. And if you need to express yourself in a string of four letter words but don't want to spend the afternoon washing those little parrots' mouths out with soap, we've got a slew of kid-friendly swear words for you. They're funny as flip. Plus, if you're missing your Bachelor fix, there's a parody version for parents that we wish was real. The roses are replaced with sippy cups and it's a million times funnier.
