With the rise of technology and the ease to use the internet, social media has expanded dramatically over the last three decades. With that rise, there has been a greater interest in building followings, becoming influencers online, or just simply sharing yourself and your family with loved ones. Selfies are a pretty big byproduct of these changes. Continue reading “Why Do We Take Selfies? Are They Good, Or Bad?”
#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

Yes, parents, we have all survived another Christmas. We endured the traveling. The shopping struggle. And even the overwhelming amount of Holiday movies and tv episodes, broadcast over the weekend. But if you are a regular follower of this blog, you might have realized something. Perhaps you noticed that we didn’t actually share any of our own holiday festivities?
