Aww! Jimmy Fallon Pens His First Baby Book

10/20/2014 at 09:00 AM ET

It’s the magical moment most parents secretly wish will end in a win for them — baby’s first word!

But then it happened: first-time father Jimmy Fallon‘s daughter Winnie Rose gave those coveted bragging rights to mom Nancy Juvonen Fallon.

Now the Tonight Show host is doing his part to ensure his fellow fathers don’t miss out on the milestone by publishing his second children’s book, Your Baby’s First Word Will Be Dada.

“This is one of the few celebrity books that you can tell was actually written by a celebrity,” Fallon, 40, jokes.

The sweet picture book — available June 9 — serves as a hilarious how-to on coaching your kiddie to show Dad some love, with cows, sheep, horses and mice prompting their pint-sized mini-me‘s to say, “Dada.”

Josie Maran Enlists Twigtale to Help with Separation Anxiety

10/03/2014 at 10:00 AM ET

Whether you’re headed to work, going on a trip or just running to the store, separating from your toddler can sometimes be a heartbreaking challenge.

Trust us: We’ve been there.

Recently, that hard lesson hit close to home for model mama Josie Maran.

After the mother of 2-year-old Indi Joon and 8-year-old Rumi Joon realized she was having a tough time easing her youngest daughter’s worries, Maran enlisted the help of Twigtale, a personalized picture book that helps children understand sensitive situations at an age-appropriate level.

“I made this Twigtale book for my daughter, Indi, to help with separation anxiety,” Maran tells PEOPLE. “I travel so much for work and I wanted her to be assured that when Mommy leaves, it is never for long.”

When Sheila McCraith realized her handyman had caught her screaming at her four sons, she knew she needed to change.

“I was beyond mortified by my behavior,” she tells PEOPLE. “I could no longer accept that yelling at my kids wasn’t a problem.”

The next morning, McCraith woke up with a plan: Go 365 days without raising her voice. But she quickly realized that keeping calm throughout the day centered around one very big obstacle — tantrums!

To keep herself accountable, the mom-of-four set up The Orange Rhino Challenge, where she shared her stories and sought support from fellow frustrated parents.

Fast forward one year later and McCraith completed her goal — and her family couldn’t be happier.

The Glow: An Inspiring Guide to Stylish Motherhood, Julie BowenKelly Stuart

Motherhood is many things. It’s beautiful. Amazing. Hilarious at times.
