Mommy Needs a Raise

Mommy Needs a Raise  *****
by Sarah Parshall Perry

Sarah Perry left the corporate world to be a mom. In this book, she is telling the story about her life from a child to eventually a mom. Then she dives into some different things she's learned as a mom and tells lots of stories.
 
I wanted to like this book, but I just couldn't get into it. There are so many books out there on how hard it is to be a mom, etc.  This one just didn't grab my attention. I kept reading pieces here and there hoping to be drawn into the story, but I just wasn't. 

My one favorite part of the book was in the very back. She writes a letter to her younger self about what she wished she had known about parenting from the start. I really enjoyed thinking through those things since I'm still a youngish mom. 
I received this book for free in exchange for an honest review.
