A beautiful coffee-table book — perfect for display*

*With a fun surprise inside!

The original inspo for this gorgeous hardback coffee table book was to create something pretty that was full of absolutely insane craziness. I think we've lived up to that and more! The soft shade of blue will be perfect for display amongst any decor, is perfectly gift-able and is stuffed full of crazy toddler tales.

Temper Tantrums


Butt Mustaches


Car Naps

Bug Eating

Zoom Interruptions

and more....


Buckle up, slip on your adult diaper, and get ready to stifle the laughs that might wake the napping baby.


You’re in for a wild ride!

This book is the breath of fresh air I needed as a new mom. Instead of endless manuals and the expectation of perfection, we need more messy stories and belly laughs to get through motherhood. I love the way Stephanie and her community have connected us all through the cringey and hilarious moments that all parents know too well.

Stephanie Nicholson, the creative genius behind Olive and Tate, has been keeping it real on her corner of the internet for years!


Inspired by her own offspring, she celebrates the ridiculousness that is parenting toddlers every week with #TODDLERTUESDAY —a platform for sharing our craziest tales of toddler madness.


A long-time contributor to Huffington Post and Scarry Mommy, Stephanie also writes no-nonsense parenting tips for those of us in the trenches.


Need some alone time? Try a round of food poisoning! In search of a fellow cool mom? Here are 5 types of mom friends (and where you can find them)! Remember the days of driving alone in a clean car? Yeah, neither do we.


Over time, she realized that, in addition to inducing deep belly laughs, the shared experience and camaraderie created by #TODDLERTUESDAY actually made parenting toddlers feel less isolating and...maybe even a little easier?


Now, the best of the best and worst of the worst of the Toddler Tuesday stories have been compiled in THIS book for parents to enjoy whenever they need a good laugh, or when they simply need to know they aren’t alone.


This is no What to Expect When You’re Expecting.


Instead, think of it more as the Sh*t They SHOULD Have Told You BEFORE You Had a Toddler!
