Book Review - Sorry I Peed on You (Jeremy Greenberg)

~ Posted on Tuesday, September 28, 2010 at 12:39 PM ~

I am so thrilled to review this compilation book of informative (and hilarious) letters from 50 precocious toddlers by Jeremy Greenberg called: "Sorry I Peed on You".

I was totally attracted by the cute cover picture. Reminds me of the time Ben did a similar thing...

Excerpts from the marketing copy:

"MSN's resident parenting blogger Jeremy Greenberg, who also travels the world performing stand-up comedy, combines cute, informative letters from 50 precocious toddlers with accompanying full-color photographs inside Sorry I Peed on You (and Other Heartwarming Letters to Mommy).

Wouldn't you love to know what your toddler's thinking when he refuses to stop jumping on the couch? Jeremy Greenberg's hilarious and thoughtful letters give parents a glimpse into the minds of their little ones. Finally, we can hear "first person" how a kid really isn't fooled by broccoli buried in cheese, how he'd really appreciate it if he could start going down the slide by himself, or how he'd like to apologize for peeing on you during the two seconds it took for you to reach for a fresh diaper. From Daddy's latest four-letter vocab lessons to the dog's (not the toddler's) repeated milk dribbles on the carpet, this hilarious book answers a question every mother of a toddler wants to know: What in the world are they thinking?!

Firstly, love love love the cute cover!

Next, as you flipped the pages in the book, you will get to see cute pictures of babies and toddlers, accompanied by their 'letters' to their mummies, explaining why they behave in a certain way.

I love how the author explains in a humorous way why babies and toddlers behave strangely differently. For example, in one of the letters, a toddler explains how the act of tossing the marinara sauce against the wall is actually an act of creative expression and wondered why mummy is not happy at all while daddy seems to be thirsty and 'need a drink' after seeing his masterpiece on the wall! Just super hilarious!

This is just one of many many more hilarious letters from the children to their mummies. You really should watch out for this book when it's out (scheduled 22nd March 2011)

If you are planning to get a book for a new parents, you should consider this book! As for parents like us, when you read the letters and look at the pictures of the babies and toddlers, it will definitely brings a smile and chuckle as you reminisced back to those scary-heart-attack funny days when your own child is acting just like the one you saw in the book.

I'm a full-time mummy

Hello Claire!
Wow! You read my blog often huh? Thanks for your continuous support and comments! Really appreciate it and makes me happy! Laughing

When I went to Genting last year, there's no baby room at all (other than a makeshift diaper changing stall from one of the toilet stall which I didn't use for hygienic reasons), so ended up BF-ing  facing walls at a corner of the Genting hotel (one of the top floor, less people walking by)

That photo of Ben is so cute! Anything baby related and cute is a winner. Awesome you're doing book reviews (=


This should be a fun book to read! Laughing

I had a fair moment of being spray by Iggy's 'hydrant' while changing his diapers.  Being a boy, it could get quite far and high, haha. However, I'm also had adequate experiences in catching Iggy's pee. As during Iggy's early life, he been subjected to fair share of urine test.. Frown
