Non-Crappy Book Giveaway: The Honest Toddler

Talking about another blogger’s book today, spreading the love, baby!

This time it is (drumroll please)ย The Honest Toddler.

I didn’t get a chance to talk to Honest Toddler (too busy) but I was able to talk to Honest Toddler’s mother. And we arranged a little text chat between Honest Toddler and Crappy Baby.



And so on.

(I really did hold up the book to Crappy Baby and ask him what he’d ask the child on the cover of the book. Those were his real questions. He asked about hurting his arm because he accidentally banged his arm on the coffee table right at that moment. He’s since been better at reminding me to give him gummy vitamins after dinner. Hmmmmm.)ย 

But about the book… I loved this book. I really did. I followed my husband around for two days reading him stuff and laughing my ass off and saying, “It’s brilliant!” over and over.

For example, in the section on books (about Shel Silverstein’s The Giving Tree):

“In this book, a young boy with beautiful overalls kills a tree over the course of many years.”

Or in the section on food:

“Unless you plan on watering down your pinot noir, don’t you dare serve your toddler intentionally weakened fruit beverages. Ruining perfectly good juice by cutting it with lukewarm tap water is disrespectful and shows that you know nothing about friendship.”

And those are just two tiny snippets. It is just so, so good. If you have little ones you will love it.

Giveaway! Win a copy of The Honest Toddler by filling out the rafflecopter thingy below! Giveaway ends July 3rd, 2013.

    Love The Honest Toddler!

  3. lorming says:

    gummy vitamins fix everything.

    • Kath says:

      Until your child eats 30 at one time, and you have to call poison control (no iron, so they’re fine). I am pretty sure they were checking the log to see the last time I called.

      • Lindsey Painter says:

        This comment made me laugh out loud. Sometimes I contemplate the merits of giving a fake name or disguising my voice… just so they don’t know it’s me calling… again.

        • Ally says:

          I’m making mental notes.

          Note to self: take turns using different phones (cell, home, husband’s cell) each time I call poison control in future. It hasn’t happened yet, but I know it’s coming.

      • Jennie says:

        I never had to call for my daughter. My son on the other hand….

    • debbie says:

      every now and again I sneak one too. They are yummy!

      • Cassandra says:

        I would have to call poison control on myself if I kept gummy vitamins in the house. Cannot resist ๐Ÿ™‚

  98. Dusti says:

    too funny for lots of long words!!!

  99. WordyDoodles says:

    Honest Toddler is pretty much my favorite parent-related site other than this one. Somehow HT manages to capture the toddler POV and still be funny to me as a parent living through it! If that’s not brilliance, I don’t know what is.

  100. Taryn says:

    Oh PLEASE do a collaboration together. Crappy Pictures + Honest Toddler is a match made in heaven. You are my two favorites and the only blogs I follow!

  101. Maranda says:

    Love the giveaways! Keep ’em coming! ๐Ÿ™‚

  108. Alison Menzies says:

    I hadn’t heard of this book before but it looks awesome.

  109. kat says:

    LMAO! I totally water down my kids delicious fruit drink. And I don’t drink anymore (thanks epilepsy meds for making parenting less fun because I can’t be half drunk while doing it! ha!) – but hey – he likes it, and I get to make the juice last longer… ๐Ÿ˜‰

  110. therese b says:

    If you let me win, I will give you unlimited popsicles and cookies.

  111. Rachel says:

    Even though I know Honest Toddler isn’t “real” I love the idea of Crappy Baby and Honest Toddler playing together.

  115. Michelle K says:

    Too funny!!!

  116. Laura says:

    I love funny parenting books! Yours was the best (because it’s my favorite website) but I always love to read new ones too. And I’m not trying to suck up, it’s just a fact.

  117. Sarah says:

    You two are my favorite blogs! I just recommended both to my friends and follow both of you! I would love to read The honest Toddler book. As I am writing this right now, my honest toddler is trying to grab my phone because he is wailing his has nothing to do amidst the 1000 toys laying on the floor.

  118. Anu says:

    I can’t wait until my boys reach this stage!

  119. Tiffany Lloyd says:

    I will probably have to buy this book if I don’t win it so can we save me a few bucks? <3 your book too btw

  120. vicki says:

    I’ve never likened watering down my kid’s juice to watering down my wine…point taken!

  121. Melissa says:

    When I feel like Motherhood has gotten me down — and beaten me repeatedly with a rubber duckie and the legendary “blue blanket” of Doom, I come here and cower, laughing my booty off as I whisper, “Thank you, Lord, it isn’t just me!”

    So, yeah, thanks for being here!

  122. Avia says:

    ๐Ÿ™‚ Honest toddler (-:

  123. Beth says:

    love it!

  124. heather says:

    I’d love a copy! These crack me up. They remind me of my beefacts twitter account except everything you say about toddlers is 100% true!

  125. Andrea says:

    After a particularly confusing trip to the grocery (why all the dirty looks, people?), we exited only to discover at that point that our precious toddler (who was kicking back in his stroller the entire time, and now that I think of it, suspiciously quiet & content for the entire shopping trip…) had, ummmmm, set free his bits and pieces and massaged them to full vertical glory. Exasperated by my apparent nudist/naturalist son’s flasher tendencies, I begged for advice from his pediatrician, who promptly prescribed a healthy dose of Honest Toddler. Best doctor ever.

  126. Oh bless’d be! Humor on a day when I was desperately seeking something to distract me from the two malstrom monsters wrecking havoc on my home and repeatedly referring to me as “Mom”. Who are these kids???

  127. Nicole says:

    I’ve got a crappy, lying toddler at home. Oddly enough, the first thing he lied about was gummy vitamins. “Did Daddy give you your vitamin already?” “No. Vitamin please!” As Daddy frantically swats the bottle out of my hand because the little brat already had one. I may need that book.

  128. gilly says:

    I feel bad for making weak squash now!

  129. Suzy says:

    Your blog and Honest Toddler are the only blogs I follow on a regular basis and I get so excited when I see a new post…. I was cracking up when you mentioned following Crappy Papa around reading from the book because I always leave your blog or HT open on the computer hoping he’ll read them when he gets home. He doesn’t get quite as excited as I do…. ๐Ÿ™‚

  130. Melb421 says:

    I enjoy the “Circle one” in a text message ๐Ÿ˜‰

  214. Jenn says:

    Sounds hilarious!

  215. Fab!! Love it all!
    I own a toddler as well, but mostly, I imagine this is what my 6 year old, mostly non-verbal Autistic son’s inner voice sounds like.
    Dry sarcasam with a hint of exasperation.
    We’re so proud. ๐Ÿ˜‰

  216. Jessica O says:

  236. Nickol says:

    I’m sure my son who is 8 would also steal this book and read it secretly until he found something too funny to bear alone and share it with me, outing himself for reading a book with questionably adult content about children. He loved your book, which I did not allow him to read but hey, at least he reads!

  237. margaret says:

    And now, it would be great if I could get my hand on The Honest Toddler. I promise, I will write another review for it.

    I definitely could use some good laughs! And I probably shouldn’t admit this, but I still need to get a copy of your book for my bathroom (so let me know if you’re doing another giveaway of that too!;) Except that I hardly ever win stuff. So I should just suck it up and buy them. Except I have too much stuff and not enough money. So I should probably buy your and just sign up for her blog for a while first.

  511. LOVE Honest Toddler. I swear, he sometimes channels my almost three year old.

  512. V says:

    I LOVE the honest Toddler! ๐Ÿ™‚

  522. K Holzer says:

    I have a toddler, and so far she’s pretty honest (“No no dance Mama!” “Walk away, Papa!”).

  523. My 2yo already knows how to work my phone better than I do – it’s only a matter of time before you start getting texts from her.

  524. Kelsey says:

    I haven’t read much of the Honest Toddler, but my 11-month old is going to be there soon, so I’d better study up!

  525. Nia says:

    I think my toddler has been talking to the HT. I get comments all the time about how “this juice doesn’t taste good” when I dilute it!

  530. Beth says:

    Love the description of The Giving Tree. Yep, that about sums it up.

    Oh, how I miss those toddler days! Although, my 6 year-old proclaimed to me (after taking a walk with his older brother and our neighbor the other day in new shoes & no socks), “Look Mom, I got a blizzard!” while showing me the blister on the back of his heel! ๐Ÿ™‚

  548. Megan Smith says:

    Looks like I’m gonna have another mom to gain some wisdom from! ๐Ÿ™‚
