#babylove: my toddler life review

#BabyLove: My Toddler Life is a book that has a wonderful message for both child and parent. Simply stated, “put down our phones.”

Written and illustrated by Corine Dehghanpisheh, it brings forth a situation that most likely rings true to all mothers and fathers. I know that I’m guilty of taking pictures and videos of Remy all day, not only for my own keepsake but to send to my husband who rarely sees her anymore. If I’m not paying attention, she will grab my iPhone and start playing with it. I usually just take it away from her. What I should be doing is not documenting every second of her life to begin with.

This picture book is colourful and fun with adorable illustrations, large lettering, and cute rhymes. Remy immensely enjoyed having it read to her. It even came with stickers!

#BabyLove: My Toddler Life is a great reminder to all parents and caregivers. Pick one up for yourself, and for anyone else that you know who could use a gentle and beautiful suggestion to do away with smartphones around children.

  1. I have this as well and was planning to do a quick review with my toddler :) He is almost 3 though so I was going to get his personal opinion! It’s a cute book, though I feel very odd reviewing it via social media given the contents ;)

    • I know what you mean. I think that it’s more than fine to do so. It has an important message that needs to be said. No one should be offended, and as long as we do review it when we’re not around our little ones, we’re still following the main idea.

      I hope that your son likes it!! You will have to post a link over here once you’ve written it.


  • Welcome, friends! My name is Emory. I am a wife, mother of two (one earthside and one with the angels), and an animal rescuer. This is our life on the Canadian prairies.

  • Man, did Remy and I have a standoff this morning. All because she didn’t want to wear socks with her boots. She threw a massive tantrum, and I yelled at her. Afterwards, we went for our walk and everything was back to normal. That is, aside from her puffy eyes and tear-stained face. My poor girl. Parenting can be so hard sometimes. Thank goodness for children being so resilient. 
That disaster behind me is nearly gone. We’re currently installing the last of our kitchen shelves, and our new sink arrived this morning. I’m excited to have a less cluttered spare room!
Have a wonderful week, everyone. This room has not yet been touched by us. It is our master bedroom. Everything about it (aside from our furniture) is exactly the same as when we purchased our home. I think that if we do list in the near future, it will be the only room in our house that we did not renovate. Part of me wants to stay just to finish it. A small part.
