Giveaway: What to Expect the Toddler Years

Yay!  It’s Saturday!

We decided to celebrate our 3rd week of blogging at More Than Mommies with a giveaway!

A while back I received a few copies of the book What to Expect the Toddler Years from whattoexpect.com.  They asked me to review them and then told me that I could do whatever I wanted to do with them.  They mentioned giving them to friends or family . . . so, since you all are my friends (you are my friends, right?) I decided to give them to 2 of you!

When the whattoexpect.com people asked me what book I wanted I knew right away that What to Expect When You are Expecting was out.  I had already given birth to the 4 children I am going to have.  I actually wasn’t sure I needed any of them because Nate is already 6 and I have been through the Terrible Twos.  Why would I need to know about them again?

Well – quite simply because no two two year olds are alike!  My twins reinforced that truth when they hit their Terrible Twos – which is completely different than Nate or Danika’s Terrible Twos and completely different from one another’s.  I decided that I needed some help with a few issues I’d never had to deal with before…

For example:

  • Biting (which Dean turned to as his main expression of frustration)
  • Weight issues (David is a lot smaller than his brothers or sisters ever were at his age)
  • Fear of the Dark (the other kids seemed to love to sleep in the dark but Dean is petrified of it!)
  • Security Blanket (David is the first and only child of mine to have one of these)
Of course, I also went back and revisited some of the other issues that I figured I may benefit from some “Professional” advice on.
Things like:
  • Getting rid of the Binky
  • When to stop the bottle and switch to a cup
  • How to know when they are ready to potty train
  • TEETHING!!!  
  • What they should be eating (and what they shouldn’t)
The book was a handy reference for me.  I think it would have been even handier for someone who hasn’t already gone through a Terrible Two Year Old . . . but I still liked looking at it for advice and reassurance that “this too shall pass“.

So – Do you want a copy?  Know someone who would benefit from it?  Just want to enter the first ever contest at More Than Mommies?
