The Honest Toddler (2012)

Based off of my blog and Twitter by the same name, this book is a satirical parenting guide as written by a naughty toddler. 

"As seen on Good Morning America, the irreverent, bracingly honest, and “awfully funny” (The Boston Globe) satirical parenting guide from the Internet’s most infamous tot, whose unchecked sense of entitlement and undeniable charm have captivated hundreds of thousands of fans.

Are you the confused parent of a toddler?

Are you constantly disappointing the 2T in your life?

Are you tired, stressed out, and looking for relief?

I can’t help you with that last one, but if you want to become an A+ servant to your small child, this book is for you. Who better to teach you about toddlers than another toddler? In this book you’ll learn:

• How time-outs make you look like a fool

• Why potty training is not only unnecessary but unrealistic for children under eighteen

• Why toddler beds are OUT and letting your child sleep on the diagonal in your bed is IN

• The best way to apologize to your toddler for all of those Pinterest casseroles

• That when you love someone, you accept them as they are, pants or no pants

The hard-hitting knowledge in The Honest Toddler will save you thousands of dollars in unnecessary whole grains and toothbrushes.

Happy reading. You’re doing the right thing. For once." :)

Toddler Are A**holes: it's not your fault


Parents of toddlers, despair not. They're all like this. In this book I get real about what it's like to have a kids in 2T-4T. 


The Big Bed 

From Bunmi Laditan, the creator of the Honest Toddler blog, The Big Bed is a humorous picture book about a girl who doesn't want to sleep in her little bed, so she presents her dad with his own bed―a camping cot!―in order to move herself into her parents' big bed in his place. A twist on the classic parental struggle of not letting kids sleep in their bed.

Five years ago I had an idea for a book. It would be called Confessions of a Domestic Failure and be for moms like me who drive trash cans on wheels and order pizza more than they'd like to admit.

It would be for moms whose living rooms look like a bomb went on in a thrift store, whose kitchen sinks always have dirty dishes in them, whose counters are never clear, and who live in leggings and hoodies.

The book would be for moms who love their babies with a fiery fierceness but sometimes cry in the bathroom when it's all too much.

I wanted to write a book for moms who don't know how to make motherhood photogenic, but wouldn't trade their life for anything. No, I haven't showered today. No, I haven't had breakfast unless coffee counts as food. No, I haven't brushed my teeth but I did chew gum. I'm working on making friends but until then, I have the UPS guy to make feel awkward with my overshares. By 4PM every day I feel like I'm going to explode and collapse from the mere weight of the responsibility that is caring for the people I love the most and reject my meals, but it's ok because I'm not the only one doing it.

I'm a mom. I'm ridiculously messy. I'm kind of always in survival mode but I heat up quesadillas and give out hugs like a boss.

Confessions of a Domestic Failure is out today and as I sit here in my garbage-mobile, waiting for my 3-year-old to wake up from his nap (naptime is at 10 when you wake up at 5:30am), my heart is full.

I hope you love my book. I hope it makes you feel less alone. Because you're not. Rock on, mamas.

Love, Bunmi
