Kids driving you up the wall? Need a light-hearted book to escape into? One that can offer real actionable advice in the form of a wine recommendation for your very situation? Read on to find out what I thought of W(h)ine – 50 Perfect Wines to Pair with Your Child’s Behavior by Jennifer Todryk.
Description (From Netgalley)
This isn’t your ordinary wine pairing book–this is wine pairing for the weary parent!
Did your daughter just get out of bed for the twelfth time to ask for a glass of water? We’ve got the perfect rosé for your sanity. Did your son just have a meltdown in the middle of the grocery store? We’ve got a Pinot for your pain. Has your child’s math homework left you in a state of total depression? Try a Syrah to get you out of that funk.
Whine includes fifty perfect pairings to match your child’s perfectly rotten behavior! You’ll also discover the best ways to open a wine bottle without a corkscrew (hint: use a shoe). As a bonus, each wine featured in the book comes with a sticker, so every time you sample a wine to match a rotten behavior, go ahead and add it to the Periodic Table of W(h)ine that folds out of the book. The sticker groupings will help you determine if your child has behavior problems, attitude problems, or just plain bad DNA!
So whether you like your “juice” from the glass, the bottle, or the box, this is the perfect book to wine your way through the joys of day-to-day parenting.
A really fun little book, this one is perfect for any wine loving parent.
I love my kids more than life itself but there are times (several a day) when their behaviour is somewhat less than perfect (god awful) and I find myself really looking forward to a glass of wine. If you’re a mother (or father for that matter) and you like wine then this book is for you. Forget matching your wine to your food (because lets face it, when your in need of a glass of wine, food rarely comes into it), this book will carefully select the perfect wine to match your little darlings’ behaviour.
Written in a very funny, tongue in cheek and relatable manner this book would make an excellent gift for any mum friends you have.
I’d give W(h)ine 4 stars.https://lekarna-slovenija.com/arcoxia-etoricoxib-online/

Good idea! I know what you mean, I’ve been making a really effort this past month to fit in at least ten minutes a day. Gone are the days of being able to sit and read a book in one sitting!
Seems like a must have for all parents, especially it would seem parents of toddlers or older 🙂 #familyfunlinky
