Toddler: Real-life Stories of Those Fickle, Irrational, Urgent, Tiny People We Love
These tales capture all the hilarity, magic, and chaos of raising the complex little people we call toddlers. Poised between the baby?s and the child?s world, toddlers teach us to take joy in the roundness and the texture of a ball, in the comfort of a blanket, in the beauty of a spider web. They help us see the world differently with their wacky interpretations of everyday objects. They exasperate, defy, and devastate us, yet they fill us with a profound sense of awe. Readers share in the joy a father feels when his daughter looks at him and exclaims "dada!" (and the disappointment that follows when she addresses her sippy cup by the same name); in the struggle of a blind mother in keeping track of her very mobile two-year-old; in the frustration a mother?a family doctor?feels when the potty-training advice she routinely gives to worried parents doesn?t work with her four-year-old triplets; and in the hilarious resignation of a father who comes to realize that even his bathroom time is now a family event. Toddler mirrors the commonality of raising toddlers and reflects the joy and wonder that define this vital time in a child and parent?s life.
