Kids say the darndest things. And Honest Toddler is no exception. This Twitter darling (or maybe he’s a little rascal?) definitely knows how to use his words by telling parents exactly what he thinks. His witty way with 140 characters always leaves us laughing because…
- Publicly you call yourself Honest Toddler. What are you called at home?
- My name or “Why? Why would you do that?”
- You often hear parents tell their children to use their words. How did you learn to be such a prolific writer at the ripe old age of two or three?
- My Baby Can Read. We didn’t actually buy it but the infomercials taught me a lot about success.
- There’s no guidebook for parents, but you seem to know a lot about what they should and shouldn’t do. What’s the best advice you can share with new moms and dads about caring for their baby?
- Babies don’t need so much love. Focus on the toddler in your life. Cake, UP, Big bed...you know what to do. Follow your instincts and your toddler’s loud directions.
- If you could spend the day doing whatever you want, what would you do?
- I’d love to visit the park fully nude with a bag of Goldfish so big they could see it from space.
- How would you deal with picky eaters and make mealtime easier? Any healthy snack ideas?
- Unbroken crackers are always a winning complete meal. There are many varieties on the market.
- We love non-toxic and eco-friendly toys. Do you have any favorites?
- I love friendly toys too, which is why I have had to break so many of mine for back talking, general insolence and getting boring.
- The most influential piece of literature in your library…
- Blueberries for Sal. It taught me that even if I engage in behavior so risky it almost gets me and my mother killed by wildlife, we’ll still go home and prepare some jam.
- Let’s play a game of word association…
- Vegetables: Pain
Potty: Marshmallows & Anger.
Honest Skull Diapers: Diapers4EVER
Garbage Truck: POWER
Instagram: Homemade pillow case dresses & cut-up fruit
Pinterest: Casseroles & depression
Daddy: UP higher
- Now that you’ve mastered social media and gotten the attention of parents everywhere, what are your goals for next year?
- My main goal for next year is avoid both preschool and keep diapers a regular part of my lifestyle. I’d also like to see cake consumption increase 20-25% in my home but a person can only dream.
