Big Kids: The One With Andrew's Mum

Welcome to This Glorious Mess Big Kids. A twice-weekly look at parenting as it really is. Confusing, exhausting, inspiring, funny, and full of surprises. So many surprises.

Today must be 'bring your parents to work day' because Andrew has brought his Mum ... Whoopi Daddo on today's episode! 

With 57 years of parenting experience behind her, 5 kids and 11 grandchildren, Whoopi has flown in from Melbourne just to impart some of her wisdom. Whoopi dishes out on Andrew's antics as a kid, her take on the favourite child conundrum and serves up some of her best nuggets of wisdom for any parent raising a big family.  


To Whoopi Daddo, for fabulously guest hosting today's episode


Hosts: Holly Wainwright & Andrew Daddo

Guest: Whoopi Daddo

Producer: Mikayla Floriano and Emmeline Peterson
