If you’re not, you will flip for this Twitter account – and decide to push back your child-rearing timeline by a few years.
@HonestToddler, a Twitter account-turned-book, illustrates the detailed daily inner thoughts of a toddler. And the results are pretty hilarious.
Montreal-area mom Bunmi Laditan started @HonestToddler in May 2012 when her youngest child turned two and started sharing her opinions.
The wild success of her tweets – the account has 235,000 followers, which spawned an active Facebook page with 130,000 fans – landed her a book deal: The Honest Toddler: A Child’s Guide to Parenting.
For an articulate, comical, irreverent take on what toddlers are thinking, follow @HonestToddler.

Toddlers approach choosing pajamas with the same seriousness you did picking a major so leave it alone.
