I Love You Through and Through



If you are the mother of a toddler perhaps you can relate to the feelings of frustration and anxiety that come over you while your little one is having their 10th tantrum of the morning?

Ok...perhaps I'm exaggerating a little with the 10 tantrums, but on the other hand maybe I'm not!

Want to know one solution to help Mom and toddler both calm down? For us, we use the wonderful book I Love You Through and Through. Kids love it and moms love it because it reminds them they love their little ones during happy and sad times!



If I'm having a particularly rough time with my little guy we like to get this book and just take a few moments to stop and relax! It works for us!

What a cute book, and a good way to put things into perspective.

There's a similar book to that one that we enjoy at our house: "I Love You Because You're You." It covers silly times and tantrum times. Cute!

Great tip. Raising these babies sure has it's ups and downs - that is for sure. Good post!

I'm Kellan, btw - nice to meet you. Take care.

I love, love, love this book. We read it often. He's still into chewing and eating the books, but he is actually starting to pay attention. It is the perfect mix of words and illustrations.

I love how you are using it. Wonderful idea.
