    "no one but you notices"



    With its mix of satirical advice about “How to survive babies, and what they grow into: children” and laugh out loud humour, Sh*tty Mum is “about short cuts and parenting with 40 per cent effort” and “doing a half-assed job, but doing it well enough so that no one but you notices”.

    What does the word notices refer to?

    No one but you notices (is aware) that you are not making a 100% effort.
