One of my favourite Twitter accounts is currently HonestToddler, a rambunctious youngster that pretty much tweets everything a two year old would think and do. I took the following from parenting blog Rattle & Mum:
If you’re on Twitter and not following @HonestToddler, you are missing out on one of the funniest and most unexpected tweeps. HT is elusive and you don’t really know his/her identity, but whatever he/she tweets rings true – from toddler tantrums to parents’ “failings” and weaknesses.
Here’s an interview with Honest Toddler, via Parenting.com
Sabrina James: Honest Toddler, you are the voice of your generation! How does that make you feel?
Honest Toddler: I’m not sure. It makes me happy that people are listening to toddlers, but sad that I am cooperating.
SJ: How old are you?
HT: This many.
SJ: Are you a boy or girl?
HT: That one.
SJ: What is your name?
HT: “Come here right now.”
SJ: What made you decide to start your blog and Twitter account?
HT: An outlet. An outlet that won’t make fire if put a plastic fork in it.
SJ: What do you do when you are not tweeting?
HT: Playing, forced sleep, forced eating, running fast.
SJ: Where do you live?
HT: On a street with several cars, six or seven trees and plenty of ants.
SJ: How do you get what you want from your parents?
HT: Ask over and over until they are mentally fatigued and emotionally crippled.
SJ: What are the three words you would use to describe your mom?
HT: Mom: Rules, Secret Chocolate, Hugs
SJ: What are your favorite things about your dad?
HT: Daddy is wonderful at games, throwing me in the air, and being a giant. He could work on accepting the fact that the big bed is mine also.
SJ: Describe what you picture as the perfect mom and dad.
HT: They would be generous with cake for sure.
SJ: Why are you always anxious to have your dad come home, often tweeting him to tattle on your mom?
HT: I have no recollection of that.
SJ: What is it about co-sleeping you love?
HT: The cozy.
SJ: What do you want to be when you grow up?
SJ: You have mentioned an older sibling, does he/she have the same attitude as you?
HT: My sibling is powerful, but I am increasing in power daily.
SJ: Can you share your observations on the following topics?
HT: Moms’ Nights Out: Terrible
Parent Drinks (cocktails): Terrible use of house fruit
Kids fashion: We are not Christmas trees. Ridiculous.
TV shows: Best is Aurthur because I love reggaeton. Worst is Curious George because I don’t like how he thinks he’s people.
Instagram: For showing off while pretending to be Laura Ingalls Wilder
Pinterest: For showing off while pretending to be Martha Stewart
Facebook: For showing off to your “friends”
SJ: What would you wear every day if you could?
