I’m a single mother with a potty mouth and a messy house. My mission is to share the joys and struggles of single mothering. My kids are one parent short, so my office hours are 24/7. I’ve raised three kids to adulthood for the past 15 years with no proper financial support from their father, and I’m hoping my gals end up more like Hermione Granger and less like Veruca Salt.

I’m also a professional fool. I get paid to play in my day job as a Clown Doctor and at night as a comedian. Clown Doctoring is the cat’s pyjamas; working for a charity, I’ve met so many fantastic philanthropic people, my cynicism has been sat on by the happiness fairy.

In the interest of fine single mothering, I Pollard my children. Minimal feeding means my kids won’t grow tall, saving on expensive undies, and keeping school uniform costs low. With a small food bill, Pou Lollard can be kept in the fine style I’d grow accustomed to.

In an ideal world, I’d have time for dancing through the tulips while singing like Doris Day with my kids. Less Kris Jenner, more Carol Brady.

    You write well Lou. Do more of it. Hit the papers and the ABC with what you write for the 2016 election. Come on out in front into the stage lights and shine. Put that light on Lou.
    The comics are in parliament. Write a few pages on single mothering and push that pram up the steps of parliament. We need to hear the “Whaaaaa, Whaaaa” of middle Australia and of the dirty nappies of reality.
