Sisters with two sons and two daughters between us. One full-time mum, the other a working parent, equally opinionated but happy to support each others’ choices. What we agree on is that parenting is terrifying, wonderful, and extremely hard work – whichever way you do it.
Liz: academic, former journalist, outdoorsy type and intermittent eco-warrior. Shacked up in a beautiful city with partner and two small girls. Inveterate worrier.
Sarah: country life and equestrian feature writer who has temporarily put career on hold to bring up two young sons. Immersed in rural(ish) commuterville with husband, boys, cat and chickens. Heavily reliant on friends and Facebook to stay sane.
