My Thoughts:

I have always tried to be a "perfect mom" but I realized that no one is perfect and the book helped me realize that. the book is full of wonderful stories about parenthood that put a smile on my face. The author provided me with tips on how to be a "real mom" and showed us all that no one is perfect. It was written as a memoir full of real life experiences of the author and her family. You do not have to be a mom to appreciate the book and I recommend it to everyone who wants to learn a little about parenting.

  2. I love Jennifer Grant’s honest, conversational style. Reading it felt like listening to a good friend, who gave me permission to not only embrace the chaos of motherhood but also to be intentional about the things that really matter. What a great book.
