HASH(0xa8324418) out of 5 stars Wilder-Taylor Nails It - Again April 13 2008
By Claudine Wolk - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
All those who are a fan of Sippy Cups Are Not For Chardonnay will not be disappointed. Naptime is hilarious, honest, and as entertaining as Wilder-Taylor's first book, and much more, because she has been in the trenches and is now actually reporting on the current state of "mommy affairs" from the "field." The result is a funny, honest portrayal of "toddler" issues. Subjects ranging from potty training, big-kid bed transition, psycho mommies, at-home mom world issues, married sex, mom body changes, and much much more are handled with the author's signature wit and style. The author clearly lets all those moms unsuccessfully aspiring to "perfect mommydom" that they can "let it go" and that they are NOT alone. Check out her mathematical equations in the Chapter entitled "Supermom" or "Superliar" - hilarious!

HASH(0xa306e078) out of 5 stars Wilder-Taylor Does It Again! April 1 2008
By Becky Harks - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
The author of "Sippy Cups Are Not For Chardonnay" has scored a touchdown again for the Mommy crowd with her newest novel, "Naptime Is The New Happy Hour." She combines her razor sharp wit with some honest observations about how toddlers morph from sweet babies into sometimes intolerable and tantrum-filled creatures seemingly overnight.

Life with a toddler is chaotic, unpredictable, and absolutely not for the faint of heart, and this instant classic will be sure to help even the most confused parent navigate the sometimes choppy waters of toddler-hood, while making you laugh uproariously at her observations.

Wilder-Taylor does for the toddler-set what "The Girlfriends Guide to Pregnancy" does for the expectant mother: reminds you that you're not alone in any of this, not when Wilder-Taylor is holding your hand, making you laugh, and reminding you that what seems abnormal is really the new normal.

"Naptime Is The New Happy Hour" should be passed out in the hospital gift bags for all mothers (new or seasoned) because it's frank look at life with a toddler will prove an invaluable resource for years to come.

Thank you Ms. Wilder-Taylor for reminding me to laugh, relax, and have a (medicinal) drink, while I enjoy the ride.

HASH(0xa306e2b8) out of 5 stars a must read for moms with a toddler April 6 2008
By A. Walsh - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
just as "sippy cups are not for chardonnay" should be required reading for all moms with a newborn, so should this book be for moms with toddlers. this book is laugh out loud funny, and the author has a unique and endearing way of putting the roller coaster of life with a toddler into perspective. i cannot recommend this book highly enough!

HASH(0xa306e45c) out of 5 stars Must Read for Toddler Moms! Jan. 1 2010
By N. Wood - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
I laughed and cried reading Wilder-Taylor's "Sippy Cups..." and was thrilled when she came out with this toddler-themed offering. "Naptime..." is absolutely laugh out loud funny. As other reviewers have said, the author has an amazing way of putting toddlerhood into perspective. I've reread the book twice, some chapters more often. Each time I read I feel better about my personal roller coaster of parenting a toddler. The author seems like a friend in her tone - someone I'd love to share a happy hour with!

HASH(0xa306e828) out of 5 stars Great second offering! May 25 2008
By Nick Tyler - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
I read Sippy Cups because my wife couldn't put it down and kept laughing. I read Naptime before my wife even had a chance to crack the cover. It did not disappoint, picking up where the other book left off. It made me laugh (a lot) and also reminded me (and my wife) that these times are crazy, frustrating, and ultimately annoying. Great read for anyone with a sense of humor looking for a little relief during the day.
