Amy Sprenger is a mom who gets to stay home and raise her young children and blog about it. Amy finds herself saying "No" to her children more often that yes and starts to wonder if maybe she is too uptight with them. What would really happen of she let them stay up a few minutes later or have ice cream for dessert or go to the park and ride bikes more often.
Amy starts a month long experiment of Yes Mommy. She cannot tell her children "no" for thirty days. Of course the children don't know she has made this decision or they might ask for ridiculous things, but even without their knowing, they manage to get away with a lot more that she usually allows.
The adventures and mishaps that shape this book are funny and relatable. In the end, Amy manages to add more yeses to her parenting style and learns to relax with her kids. I recommend this book to mothers who have it together, mothers who aren't so sure and mothers who don't have a clue. I think we are all each type of mother at some point!
