One mum's hilarious account of raising adolescents. I've learnt that when I come home from work and my daughter has tidied up her bedroom, swept the back veranda free of cigarette butts, cooked dinner and tells me, after pouring me a glass of wine, 'that's the good news - now here s the bad' that it probably involves body piercing. If I'm lucky Sonia Neale has had enough, her sons are crusty, smelly and permanently hooked to the tV, her daughter has so many piercing she sets off theft-detectors in stores, and as for Sonia herself, well, there's only one thing she wants more than chardonnay and steamy sex with Keanu Reeves: chardonnay and a bit of peace and quiet! But with a house full of teenagers, what are her chances?Funny stories from the lives of an average family as a mother recounts of the delights and horrors (mainly horrors) of parenting three teenagers.
