Book Review - Toddlers Are A**holes: It's Not Your Fault by Bunmi Laditan

I bought this book from Amazon.
Toddlers Are A**holes: It's Not Your Fault
by Bunmi Laditan

Book Description:

Toddler a**holery is a normal part of human development—not unlike puberty, except this stage involves throwing food on the floor and taking swings at people who pay your way in life. For parents of toddlers, it's a "you better laugh so you don't cry" period.

Bunmi Laditan's hilarious, satirical guide to toddlerhood offers parents instant (and very welcome) comic relief—along with the very good news that "It's Not Your Fault." Chapters cover the cost of raising a toddler, feeding your toddler, potty-training, tantrums, how to manage the holidays, and "how not to die inside." Parents will see themselves in the very funny sections on taking your toddler to restaurants ("One parent will spend their time walking your toddler around the restaurant and outside like a cocker spaniel, while the other, luckier parent will eat alone."), Things You Thought You'd Never Say That You Now Say As a Parent of a Toddler ("I can tell you're pooping because your eyes are watering."), and how to order pizza ("Spend $40 on pizza delivery. Listen to your toddler cry for 30 minutes about how the pizza is all wrong. Watch your toddler take a small bite of crust. Google 'can anger give you a heart attack?' Start the bedtime routine.").

Laditan's wildly funny voice has attracted hundreds of thousands of fans of Honest Toddler on social media; here she speaks parent-to-tired-parent, easing the pains and challenges of raising toddlers with a hefty dose of adult humor and wit.

Book review:
I loved this book! It was hilarious. If you have a toddler you will love this book.... maybe. Some might get offended by the bad words but if you do then this might not be the book for you. This book explains why and how toddlers are a**holes but you gotta have a sense of humor if you're going to read it and enjoy it. As a mother of three children between 2-7 years old I can relate to a lot of things in this book but in my opinion it's just a tiny bit exaggerated. Don't expect any advice just entertainment. I give this book 5 stars!

Some of my favorite quotes from the book:
"Never give a toddler Chocolate. This is inexcusable behavior. We don't waste chocolate on babies."

"If you've never tried to enjoy food while having a dirty, chubby toddler hand that has probably recently been up her butt reach into your plate and pull off your last slice of bacon, you're living the dream."

"Mealtime with a toddler can only be described as a fat pain in the ass. It's best if you don't expect to eat. Don't even set a place for yourself at the table. Just stand next to your toddler like the hired help."
