Parenting Toddlers Books

I am currently reading The Happiest Toddler on the Block by Harvey Karp. So far, so good! My son is almost two and is definitely in a defiant, tantrum-throwing stage at times. I read a lot of pregnancy and baby books, but none into the toddler years yet. Next on my list is Playful Parenting. It is supposed to be really great. Basically it tells parents to lighten up and spend a few hours giggling with their kids. Play is inherently educational for children and parents can learn plenty by examining the games kids play--from peekaboo to practical jokes. Definitely sounds like my kind of book. I will report back on both after I'm done. Have you read either of them? I'd love to hear comments.

Oh what fun a water bottle is!


Slimline Easter Photo Cards

These adorable Happy Easter photo cards are the hottest thing this Spring! You can try the Bunny and Bee photo card or the Pastel Dots. Both come vertical or horizontal or you can try something completely different. Either way, you are sure to make a lasting impression.


# 22 - DRINK This is my little man taking a drink of water from his sippy cup. We were in Bangkok, Thailand and my son was 16 months old at the time. We had to be very careful to not drink any tap water, even at a high end hotel. We used bottled water for washing our faces, brushing our teeth and of course for drinking.

Stylish Mama

Numerous pockets - three interior, four exterior - keep all of your baby's accoutrements at hand, as well as offering space to stash the included changing pad. A separate, lined diaper tote is the perfect place to store diapers on the way to the dustbin. Handmade in Denver, Colorado.
