*I received a copy of #BabyLove: My Toddler Life for review. All opinions are my honest thoughts.*
It’s a normal day around here. I can’t find my phone, and after a thorough search find the 5year old has run off with it and hid in his fort. I remind him my phone is not a toy. Then later I see the fun pictures all the kids have managed to take that melt my heart.
If this sound similar to your day, then you’ll love reading #BabyLove: My Toddler Life by Corine Dehghanpisheh.
In Corine Dehganpisheh’s latest children’s picture book #BabyLove: My Toddler Life, a curious toddler loves to play … especially with his mommy’s smartphone!
When Mommy find him using her phone without permission, it’s the perfect teaching moment. Mommy reminder her little one that what matters most in life is time together filled with love and attention.
Her simple reminder: Put down our phones.
One of my absolute favorite things to do in life is to lay on the floor and read with my kids. As they get older we transition to reading on the couch and beds, and eventually, they stop letting me read to them. I try to pretend that day will never come, though.
When the book is a story that they can relate to, storytime becomes that much better. #BabyLove: My Toddler Life pretty much sums up my day. The girls go off to school, and I get busy in my work. I take fun pictures of the boys at play. At some point Lincoln will find my phone and take off with it.
Who am I kidding, all the kids have at some point or another. Since I rarely have any games on my phone, they resort to playing with the camera. The end result means lots of fun heart warming pictures for me to look at later. I can never get rid of any though, so I take a picture of their pictures to save.
Similar to My Toddler Life, I gently remind my children that the phone is not a toy, and then I let it go. I let them have fun, and they’ve gotten better at asking permission to play on it. There are still those moments where my phone has gone missing and I find Lincoln hiding with it in his blanket fort.
