Sand in My Sandwich by Sarah Parshall Perry

"Sand in My Sandwich: And other Motherhood Messes I'm learning to Love" by Sarah Parshall Perry is a true look into motherhood. As a mother of three children, two of whom are autistic, Sarah gives readers a small glimpse into "a day in the life." By combining humor and stories that will make you want to cry, Sarah learns what it truly means to give everything to God.

Being a mother is downright hard sometimes. And when your child is prone to puke everywhere or when they simply insist that there's sand in his sandwich....well, you'll learn to find the humor and love your life. And that's exactly what Sarah Parshall Perry has done!

It's really hard for me to pinpoint exactly what I liked about this book, because it's pretty much everything. I love the way the author shares her stories with humor, and yet I know that it must not always be easy to find the humor. I love that she is so real with what she writes. She's transparent- no holds barred. Her writing style is very easy to read and I feel that she can probably relate to a lot of parents of Autistic or Asperger's children.

I received this book for free from Revell, a division of Baker Publishing Group in exchange for my honest unbiased opinion. I rate this book as 5 stars.
