#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.

Being a product of my generation, and already owning multiple Apple devices, I felt that it was time to retire my Samsung. After all, most of the bloggers that I follow have owned their iPhones for years! So very reluctantly, I picked a day during the middle of the week to go and buy a new cellphone.

I must admit that learning to use an iPhone was extremely easy, and the overall transition has been fun and amazing. I am also becoming addicted to the free games that are provided in the Apps. Does anyone else have this problem? Also, I have to say that the cases alone are reason enough to switch to an iPhone. I am seriously in love with my new rabbit case (even though his whiskers scratch my ears every time I receive a call).

Yet, for some reason, I still can’t part with my old phone. I have even dedicated one of the two zippers in my purse to bring it along wherever I go. With no number or service, it is a sad reminder of my initial switch to a smartphone. I feel as if my Samsung needs a proper goodbye, so I am treating this post as a sendoff.

Here were some other song titles that I deemed appropriate for saying farewell to my phone: “Yesterday,” “Here Without You,” “Goodbye My Lover,” “I Will Remember You,” “Don’t Forget to Remember Me,” and “See You on the Other Side.” So long, my Samsung. I’ll be seeing you.

Have a spectacular weekend, friends!!


  • 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.
