The Christian Mama's Guide to Parenting a Toddler by Erin MacPherson

I initially wanted to read this book because a blog friend of mine had read it and the title of it just totally seemed appropriate for me in this stage of life!!  The author's take on raising a toddler in this book is hilarious..she keeps everything light and simple from potty training your child to disciplining your child during those 'terrible-two' years!  As a mother of a soon to be two year was nice to hear from a published author to not take everything so seriously when it comes to raising my child.  It can be stressful when it seems everyones children anymore are looking for their potential colleges when they are in first grade! 

I would highly recommend this book to anyone raising a toddler.  It's important to keep Christ centered in raising a child this day and age..and the author here shows how she does it in everyday tasks.  Sometimes when your so busy keeping them entertained, trying to teach them colors, and teaching them to go potty, we can miss out on the fun stuff.  Like sloppy kisses, finger paintings, fresh picked flowers, or yes..crayon masterpieces on the living room wall!  Learn to love this age..because before you know it..they will be off to college and not a little child anymore.  :-)

I received this book through booksneeze to read and review for opinions are my own.



  1. Sounds like a great book to read and I agree they grow up so fast and before you know it the time when they are little will be gone so cherish it now while you have it.

  2. These tend to run bigger than others so if you're not ready to move up to the next size they help. I've had a few leakage issues though but that wouldn't deter me from giving this five stars. They move well too, when they get wet they don't become overly bulky.


I love hearing your comments! Thanks for stopping by!
