Big Kids: Drunk Mummy, Sober Mummy

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

At the end of a long day, a cold beverage can be the ultimate reward. Especially when it comes to parenting. But when does the idea of 'wine time' start to become ... dangerous? 

Holly and Andrew sit down with Victoria Vanstone, best known for her Drunk Mummy Sober Mummy blog, who has been on a zig-zagging journey of sobriety since having her three kids. Drinking was once Victoria's outlet, but now over 1000 days sober, she is here to share her story with us. 

Plus, on parenting mentors, this week a self-described 'Cool Parent' needs our help with a dating daughter. 


You can follow Victoria's journey on her website  Drunk Mummy Sober Mummy
