Welcome to the world of thinking-on-the-feet parenting. A world where questions are answered and answers are questioned, where one day segues into another without a warning sign, and where intense exhaustion co-exists with blissful happiness—the true signs of parenting.
Double Trouble, Double Fun is Riti Prasad’s hilarious, realistic, and tell-all chronicle of raising twins during their early childhood. She delivers an irreverent insider’s account of parenting through a decade that has seen the best and the worst of parenting theories, the boom of internet moms, the battle between working and stay-at-home moms, as well as other parenting after-shocks.
In her thought-provoking memoir, she questions accepted parenting norms and expectations, struggles to come to terms with the ever-expanding scope of motherhood, and races against time to fulfil them.
Sifting through memories of her parenting tactics and theories, Riti delivers a power-packed punch of a book that negotiates through challenges of pregnancy and parenting, pearls of wisdom, nuggets of humour, screams of frustration, sighs of exasperation, and tears of joy and disappointment in equal measures.
Written through the lens of a career-invested, borderline-workaholic, and delegation-savvy mom, this book shares a parenting journey navigating through poopy diapers, potty training, balanced diets, tiring holidays, PTA meetings, and workplace triumphs and disappointments.
Riti Prasad had her plans well laid out. Get a job right out of MBA college, marry around the age of twenty-eight and have a child, preferably two, before thirty. And, God decided to grant her just what she asked for. Working as creation head in a multinational fragrance company, she cruises through raising her twins in her unique creative style. She often debates whether she must credit the twins for her success at work, because they taught her what an MBA could not—patience and determination through stressful situations. She is one of the top mommy bloggers in India and has written the books Mathematics, Fun, Facts and Fiction, Folk Tales from Around the World and Wicked Temptations. She lives in Chennai with her entrepreneur husband and twin boys.
