Toddler by Jennifer Margulis (A Review and Giveaway!)


There are plenty of books available to new parents, with more advice than you could possibly know what to do with(Photo sourceThere are also plenty of books on being a new parent that act like a nice friend who comes along and says, "It's okay, you're normal, I do that too. New babies make us do strange things." 

But once you get past the baby stage, forget it. There are a lot of books on how to potty train, how to get your toddler to stop undressing in public, how to this, how to that. But no books on the toddler stage that exist just to make you feel normal.

Maybe the idea is that either once your kid is a toddler you already have this kid-raising thing figured out, or maybe it's that once you get to the toddler stage, it's too late.... There's no advice for you. But, still, it would be nice to have a friend just come along and tell you you're normal, right? 
Enter, Toddler: Real-Life Stories of Those Fickle, Irrational, Urgent, Tiny People We Love by Jennifer Margulis. This book is a collection of stories from parents either just like us or not so like us who are simply existing with their tiny people. It's a wonderful conglomeration of stories that will make you laugh, cry, and comfort you by letting you know that you're just like everyone else--and so is your toddler.


I seriously could not put this book down, while at the same time I didn't want to finish it because I didn't want it to end! I wish the stories went on and on. Brian would make fun of me that whenever we would (FINALLY!) get our toddler to bed, I would want to read a book about other peoples' toddlers! And yes, maybe that sounds crazy, but it was so comforting to read others' experiences and the stories really helped me put things in perspective. 

Read what others have to say about "Toddler."


For any anyone who has experienced the tribulations and triumphs of toddlerhood, I highly recommend this book. It would make a wonderful shower gift or "birth day" gift for any mother. Get yourself or someone you love a copy, or if you're feeling lucky, enter the giveaway below! A very special thanks to Jennifer Margulis for providing copies of this wonderful book to TWO lucky readers. Best of luck!
