Tounge n' cheek! Lots of stuff to take the seriousness out of parenting a toddler. All of Vicki's books are great and can make you feel like you have a friend who knows just what you're feeling as you turn the pages of this easy, fast read.

This book came in handy! For a mother of a 2 1/2 year old (along with a 5 month old), i needed to hear from Vicki what was possessing my oldest child. She gave me many ideas of how to handle situations and I felt good knowing that i'm not the only mother wishing the toddler years weren't so tough.

The title says it all...this is a funny look at toddlers...I was expecting more helpful information, though it is good for a laugh or two...

While this is 11 years out of date and this shows often in her jokes, the book is still refreshing. Vicki Iovine tells you how things really are and that most things are not worth getting in a tizzy over. She made me feel good about my not having another child.

Hilarious tongue-in-cheek look at surviving the toddler years. Vicki Iovine tells it like it is with her straight-from-the-hip survival tips from mommies who have been there.

Highly recommended to give frazzled mommies a much-needed laugh.

This book had me LMAO. Very funny and great advice too. It was a gift from a friend and it was dearly loved. Thank goodness my kids grew out of this stage! (and lived to tell the tale)

Irreverent and funny, lots of commonsense. Whether or not you agree with everything Ms Iovine says, you will not feel alone in the trials of motherhood after reading this book

This book uses real life examples and solutions to dealing with toddlers on a daily basis. Advice that you would get from your girlfriends on the ups and downs of raising a toddler. A very good book! Written by the same author of The Girlfriends Guide to Surviving Pregnancy and The Girlfriends Guide to Surviving the First Year.

Hilarious author. Just as good as the Girlfriends' Guide to Pregnancy

Iovine writes baby books like none you've ever seen. I've never read her and felt guilty, or felt like I was being patronized. She's honest and hilarious, and her books read more like a funny email/letter from a friend than a typical baby book. You may not agree with all her ideas, but you'll laugh!

This is a great book to make your husband read...it's everything a mom sees with spending time with your child 24/7 that your hubby doesn't understand! It is a humerous look at life with a child (from a toddler's mantra of I see it- therefore it is mine! to potty learning to food and more!). I enjoyed reading it.

This was a lifesaver for me! Highly recommended and comical!

This book didn't really do anything for me. It is, as the title says, a guide your girlfriends could have written. Since I have plenty of friends with children around the same age as mine, I didn't get anything out of this book. It's written with humour, and from an individual mother's perspective, but I find my own parenting philosophy to be more coherent than the one presented in the book.
