#BabyLove: My Toddler Life by Corine Dehghanpisheh

If you haven't got a chance to check out Corine's other #BabyLove book, than I'd recommend grabbing a copy. What I love about #BabyLove is how her beautiful illustrations compliment the story being told. She does such a great job using teachable moments and bringing them to a level that is comprehensive to your child. 

What I loved about My Toddler Life is how it brought to light a topic that many people forget is so important. The story centered around a child who does all these fun things with his mom that gets posted to social media for their friends. It wasn't until the child was left unattended, when he discovers her phone, she reacted with a takeaway that provided life lessons for both.

With cell phones dominating the lives of so many moms, you tend to forget it's not about capturing every moment to post to social media. It's the time you spend in the actual moments that you absorb and enjoy. Kids see your phone and automatically are curious because that's what they see you doing all the time. We get lost in trying to capture it rather than just enjoying the moment as it is happening naturally. Sometimes you just have to power off so that your child can enjoy the best moments with you as well.

It was a cute, fun book that was enjoyable and had a nice lesson to takeaway. You'll love the beautiful illustrations and it has a sweet story to accompany. It was just the right length with a good pace. So, if you are one of those parents that post every moment, just remember it might be rewarding to power of sometimes.
