Publisher's Description

Goodbye, Board Room and Legal Briefs--Hello, Dimples, Diapers, and Destruction

Women know that raising children will be different from climbing the corporate ladder. But nothing can truly prepare them for the mind-muddling world of motherhood. It doesn't take long for a new mom to question whether her tyrannical, diapered boss really understands her value to the organization. Because honestly? She's not always sure herself.

With her signature wit, lawyer-turned-full-time-mommy Sarah Parshall Perry says what all new moms are thinking when they trade annual reports for homework help and yoga pants. Perry invites moms to laugh alongside her amidst the "Are you kidding me?!" moments that come with the job of raising humans. This book is story of every mother who gives up one thing to get something better--and ends up finding out what she's worth along the way.

    If you are a mom in need of a little encouragement and a lot of affirmation, Mommy Needs a Raise (Because Quitting's Not an Option) will be a great read for you. This book is Sarah Parshall Perry's story of how she went from one career to another to another and found her favorite in being a mom. In fact, as I read the first part of the book, I wondered what it had to do with being a mom. But she drove her point home beautifully in the second half of the book. She's found the role she loves most of all and wants to encourage all mothers everywhere to thoroughly enjoy all the blessings of motherhood, in spite of its challenges and lack of dental insurance, regardless of whether they choose to stay home or pursue a concurrent career.

    I laughed. I highlighted. I agreed. I gleaned some great ideas. I found this book to be a lot of fun. Most of all, I loved reading another mother's account of struggling through some of the things I struggle through and coming through it all well. Whether you're new to this mom-career or consider yourself a seasoned pro, your story will be enriched as you giggle through Sarah's.

    I thank Revell for sending me a complimentary copy of this book in exchange for my honest review.

    Sarah Parshall Perry in her new book, Mommy Needs a Raise published by Revell gives us (Because Quittings Not an Option).

    From the Back Cover: Um, excuse me, but . . . do these children come with dental?

    Sarah Parshall Perry knew that raising kids would be different from climbing the corporate ladder. But she wasnt ready for just how different. Wasnt a job just a job? And what was that on her shirt? Sarah left the corporate world with a plan to win at mothering and was downright blindsided. Nothing went as planned, everything was foreign, and her bosses didnt always understand her value to the organization.

    With her signature wit, lawyer-turned-stay-at-home-mommy Sarah says what all of us are thinking when we trade annual reports for homework help and sleepless nights. Sarah invites you to laugh alongside her in the Are you kidding me?! moments that come with the job of growing people. Crossing the divide between employee and mother is hard. But thankfully, its also hilarious.

    This book isnt just her story. Its your story. The story of every mother who gives up one thing to get something betterand ends up finding out what shes worth along the way.

    One day it was official the doctor informed you that you were pregnant. That little bundle is different from anything out there in the corporate world. There is no training just whatever you picked up from your mother and family and friends. Sarah Parshall Perry knows about parenting. And she is nice enough to share her experiences with us. If you are a parent then, I believe, this book will be a resource for you. A way to identify with the issues you are facing and see that when it happened to Ms. Perry she was able to find some humor in the situation. Perhaps you will too.

    It takes a little bit to get off the ground but once you're past the first chapter (or so), Mommy Needs a Raise by Sarah Parshall Perry is pretty entertaining. It's written more autobiography-style than parenting-book style, but that lends to its charm. Perry isn't saying "This is how you Mom right." Instead, she's saying "This is how I Mom, and how I got here, and a bunch of the stuff nobody ever told me about Momming."

    From the beginning, Perry's mission seems to be to encourage - and also warn - the worn-out mom who wonders whether what she's doing is worth the effort it takes to do. From my own perspective as one currently in the ranks of not-moms, I was glad to see that it wasn't a book full of "Kids are the worst" or of "You're the worst." Instead, the author seems to be just sharing things with honesty to provide some "I'm right here with you" to other moms and maybe even a little "It gets better" for those who are still in the first stages.

    I chose to review this book for the Revell Reads blogger reviewer program in exchange for a free copy and I'm happy to say that this is one of the precious few parenting books out there that is worth the time it takes to read.

    Raising kids is nothing like the working world. And no matter how many books you read, kids you babysit, or parents you talk with - nothing can prepare you for the utter chaos that will ensue when you bring one of those lovely creatures home with you. The author, a lawyer, who worked for several years before deciding to stay home with her children, writes with humor and experience as she talks about the blessings and stress of being a mom.

    I loved this book. I kept reading portions out loud to whomever happened to be near. The author was hilarious and spot on. I could relate to so many of the things that she talked about. It might be a case of misery loves company, but she also, while laughing about the chaos of kids, brought how precious they are to us and how we are entrusted with so much. This was inspiring, thought provoking, and a much needed respite from being a mommy. I would recommend this book to anyone who is or will soon be a mom. Loved it!

    I received this book free of charge from Revell Reads in exchange for my honest review.
