A Billion Days of Parenthood

This charming New-Yorker really helped open my eyes to the world of parenthood; the ups and downs, the ins and outs, and the itchy momma bears.

A Billion Days of Parenthood

I'm going to be honest, I'm not a massive fan of children myself and I don't really think about having a kid of my own anytime in the future. But, from the perspective of Taylor Glenn, it seems to be an even more exhausting, albeit, also a truly more wonderful experience, than I could have imagined.

Glenn's A Billion Days of Parenthood explores her past, from when she met her husband to the "lovemaking" process, the pregnancy, and post-natal depression. I really felt I empathised with her and, I have to admit, it made me respect all parents, especially my own, for putting up with the never-ending mess that raising a child comes with.

Despite the thoughtful and quite serious subject matter, this was a laugh-out-loud show, and I was very impressed with how well her sense of American humour translated with the English audience - this doesn't always work.

It's funny, it's dark, it's sad. Everybody in the room loved it, and you should too.
