Book Description

What's a mom to do when her sweet baby's smiles and snuggles turn to tears and tantrums? This take on everything toddler—from throwing food to potty training to massive toddler fits—is filled with sanity-saving advice every mom wants to hear. Helpful tips include how to:
  • stop a tantrum in its tracks (or at least survive the tantrum without breaking into tears of your own)
  • discipline your child in a way that demonstrates Christ's redeeming love
  • make your marriage a priority when your kid is a squeaky wheel that always seems to need your time and attention
  • introduce your child to Jesus in a way that leads to authentic faith
  • convince a one-and-a-half year old that broccoli really is better than cookies—even if you don't believe it yourself
Moms will be entertained and encouraged by the amusing anecdotes and godly advice of this comprehensive, topical approach to parenting one and two year olds.

My Thoughts:

The Christian Mama's Guide to Having a Toddler picks up where the The Christian Mama's Guide to Having a Baby drops off.  I really loved the chapters providing tips to Stay-at-Home moms and Working Moms.  I was fortunate to have the opportunity of a flexible working schedule when my children were babies and then lucky enough to find the best nanny in the world when I returned to work full-time and then even more fortunate to be able to stay home with my kids until they were 3 years old.  I know every mommy isn't as lucky and it's a tough decision whether you're a stay-at-home mommy or one who works outside the home.  

The Christian Mama's Guide to Having a Toddler offers a whimsical look at the insanity that is parenting a toddler.  I love MacPherson's take on parenting.  She offers a fresh and hysterically funny take on the oldest job in the world and even manages to tie in some biblical principles.  So what if the advice is something you've heard a hundred times before, this book presents parenting advice in a way sure to put a smile on your face.  It's really funny!!! 

The Christian Mama's Guide to Having a Toddler would make a wonderful 1st birthday gift for the parents of a 1- or 2-year old in your life.

Buy It:

The Christian Mama's Guide to Having a Toddler is available wherever Thomas Nelson books are sold and also on Amazon.  I am looking forward to checking out the other books in the Christian Mama's Guide series and hope to share my thoughts with you on them as well.

RAIN RAIN GO AWAY! GIVEAWAY HOP

Hello Spring!  

I am so excited for Spring 2018.  Not that I have anything major planned or anything.  Well, I am on a cruise right now.  Oh yeah, I'm on my way to Cozumel for a few days of rest, relaxation and margaritas.  

What a way to welcome Spring huh?  What about you?  What are your Spring travel plans?  Are you and the family hitting the road?  Catching a flight somewhere?  Where ya headed?

Nothing like a little extra spending money when on vacation and I am so excited for this Rain Rain Go Away! Giveaway Hop.  This is my 3rd year participating in this fun hop sponsored by The Mommy Island and The Kids Did It and each year it gets bigger and bigger.  

There are some really great prizes up for grabs and add some new blogs to your reading list plus your chance to win a $40 Visa eGift Card.  Why $40 you ask.  Well that's because I-40 is the interstate we typically travel to most of our Spring Break destinations.

Jeepers! It's January Hop

Happy New Year!

What better way to kick off the new year than with a giveaway! I am so excited to join The Mommy Island, The Kids Did It and 90+ other fab blogs in the first big giveaway hop of 2018!

Here’s your chance to start the new year off with a win. One lucky Three Boys and an Old Lady blog reader will receive a $15 Walmart eGift card. $10 may not seem like a lot but it’s enough to stock up on some last minute Christmas clearance gifts. Trust me. I bought a 6’ Christmas tree WITH lights, 2 animal massagers, 3 Jelly Belly BeanBoozled Jelly Beans Mystery Bean Dispenser, Christmas cards and wrapping paper less than $20 during an after Christmas Walmart shopping trip.

I was searching for some cough syrup when my friend’s kid spotted the Jelly Belly BeanBoozled Jelly Beans Mystery Bean Dispenser on sale for 50 cents. What a steal! The regular price is $10 so to find them on sale for 50 cents was a deal. We cleared the shelves.

A few rows down we spotted some animal neck massager…
