I also want the personalities of myself, and my family, to shine through our decor. Today, I want to show off this beautiful piece from 76th & Newbury, and talk about their design process… Continue reading “Customized Home Decor with 76th & Newbury”
#BabyLove: My Toddler Life, by Corine Dehghanpisheh
Does your toddler love to play with your phone? The new book, #BabyLove: My Toddler Life, may be just the addition you needed to your home library!
This is a sponsored post in which I have received a copy of this book for free, in exchange for a review. My opinions are 100% my own and not swayed in any way. This post also contains affiliate links. See full disclosure policy page for more info.
This is a really cute story, about a little boy who loves playing with Mommy’s phone. Because of course, what toddler doesn’t? That is, until something happens. Then the little boy, and readers, learn a pretty valuable lesson in something I think most parents are guilty of from time to time. Sometimes, even though we use our phones to document our family life, and the milestones our children reach; every so often, you just gotta put the phone down.
The book itself is beautifully illustrated, and very well written. My son loved reading this with me, and it’s rhyming structure makes this a great book to practice reading with your little one. Granted, my son is really more into the pictures, which are bright and eye-catching!
There’s also something to learn for both parent and child. Kids will be reminded of how we really shouldn’t play with an adult’s phone. And their parents are reminded of just being mindful, and enjoying the moments (without necessarily whipping the phone out to document every second).
The author herself, Corine Dehghanpisheh, is a Licensed Creative Arts Therapist, in New York City. She has written several children’s books. This is the second in her series, the first being BabyLove: My Social Life

Beautifully illustrated book that teaches children not to play with their parents smartphones, and reminds parents to be mindful, and to put the phone down! A great tool for also teaching children to read with it’s rhyming scheme!

Remember your favorite classic toys?
One of the perks of being a parent, is being able to show your kids the classic toys you once loved. While our son is still kinda young for some of these, we are still excited for the day he can play! This is a roundup of a few classic toys, that you might remember from childhood…
Remember Super Mario Bros, Donkey Kong, and The Legend of Zelda? Well now, you can get those, and 27 other pre-installed in this throwback of early video gaming. This Classic Nintendo comes with a standard HDMI cable, so it plugs right in, ready to go! You can flex your old school gamer skills against the kids, without their fancy controllers and headsets. It’s 8bit heaven that’ll make you feel young again! And the kids will like it too! Although they’ll totally miss out on the annoying dust inside the cartridge, and won’t need to “blow” inside to get it to work again.
Every kid had one of these growing up, in some shape or form. You either had small pistols, medium sized soakers, or double barrels that out out a gallon a piece. If you were really cool, you had a keychain 😉 Well now, these water guns are better than ever, and perfect to get kids outside during the summer! Plus, it’s a rule that parents get the biggest of them all.
These little cars will never die out-kids love them! And there’s millions to choose from. No matter what your favorite style, model, or color; there’s a Hot Wheels for it. The Criss Cross track was one every kid had to have (or, if you were a girl, you played with your Brother’s). Still an awesome toy, and one they will def need help putting together by Mom & Dad.
What’s some of your favorite classic toys growing up, that you can still find today?
