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.

BONUS: Just Let Your Kid be a Dinosaur at the Dentist

We don't mean to alarm you but it's only five weeks to Christmas. If the thought of the looming festive season has you frazzled, we have three bonus episodes of This Glorious Mess dropping over the next month to save your sanity.
Now that love has won and same sex marriage is well and truly on its way, so are all the babies! Fittingly, there are now antenatal classes for LGBTIQ parents so they don't have to field questions like, 'but who's the REAL mum?'. We chat to the midwife behind these classes and learn about the fascinating ins and outs of co-breastfeeding.
And should you let your kids dress themselves? Our guest host Annie Nolan lets her twins go wild in their wardrobes and sees it as a creative expression. But would your kids more likely end up with one sock missing and their knickers on their heads?
Plus, are kids concerts wildly overpriced? And how the heck does a six-year-old know how to order Uber Eats?
Your hosts are Holly Wainwright and Annie Nolan
With thanks to Janet Broady. You can find out more about LGBTIQ antenatal classes at www.rainbowfamilies.com.au
