Equal Parts Saintly Cherub and Demanding Emperor- Who Is This Child Formerly Known As Your Baby?

Faster than a speeding bullet…Is it Superman? Nope, just your high-energy toddler, keeping life interesting-and mom on the run! Once, you dreamed of the day your precious baby would walk and talk. Now, you are constantly dragging your child out of the dogs dish, making up answers to unanswerable questions (“Why, Mom, why?”), and engaging in power struggles with the worlds most adorable 25-pound dictator.

Do other mothers of toddlers have days like this? You bet your sweet potty chair they do! Here are veteran moms stories and from-the-trenches advice on what works when dealing with the often challenging, always entertaining one- and two-year-old crowd, including:

• What to do when your tot glues himself to your leg for no apparent reason (other than to yell)

• Toys to boost your toddlers brilliance-including freebies shell love most of all

• Taking the “toil” out of toilet training (it is rocket science, no matter what your mother-in-law says)

• Tantrum-tamers you can use from the mall to your mothers house

• Getting your toddler to eat more orange and green (gummy worms dont count)

• Ping pong prayers and other ways to connect Junior to God

Here at last is the help youve been longing for: a hilarious but practical bimonthly guide to surviving, enjoying-and laughing your way through-the exhausting, crazy-busy, glorious toddler years.

Synopsis:

A young mother of two takes readers on a friendly, entertaining, and empowering journey through the uproarious toddler years in this guide that's filled with sidebars, quotables, voices of veteran moms, developmental milestones, how-to lists, and practical help for each month of toddlerhood.

Synopsis:

Every mother dreams of the day her precious baby will walk and talk. But once that day arrives, mom finds herself constantly dragging her child out of the dog's dish, making up answers to unanswerable questions ("Why, Mom? Why?"), and engaging in relentless power struggles with a person less than one-quarter her size. When faced with the privilege and challenge of raising a toddler, moms need to know three things: that they're not alone, how to keep their sense of humor, and what really works when dealing with the one- and two-year-old crowd. In "See How They Run, Lorilee Craker, a young mother of two with wit to spare, rises to the challenge by taking readers on a friendly, entertaining, and empowering journey through the uproarious toddler years. Filled with sidebars, quotables, voices of veteran moms, developmental milestones, how-to lists, and practical help for each month of toddlerhood, Lorilee's latest guidebook is the perfect companion to parenting books authored by the medical experts.
