Words Of Wisdom, Honest Toddler Style. Take 10

I'm about a week late on Honest Toddler time, but it is here and you know that's right!

Honest Toddler tweets hilarious one liners multiples time per day. I read. I giggle. And then I pick out my favorites from the past month for you to enjoy.

Here are my favorite 10 Honest Toddler Tweets from 5-4-13 to 6-3-13:
  1. I think Home Depot is some kind of advanced Pinterest course where in exchange for money you get weekend assignments.
  2. Toddler Tip: You never really leave time out. Most of us are just out on parole.
  3. Fun Fact: That Grover Cleveland and Abraham Lincoln were not potty trained.
  4. Toddler Tip: Not remembering why you're crying is no reason to stop.
  5. Toddler Tip: Followers say "no thank you." Leaders hit things out of people's hands. #LeanIn
  6. Parent Tip: Love isn’t just a word. It’s also the willingness to fix someone a small snack while making dinner.
  7. Good call on naming them “playpens” because “tarp jail” probably wouldn’t have taken off.
  8. OK so nail polish doesn't actually polish anything. If anyone asks, I've been with you. Please be cool.
  9. Parent Tip: "Fully dressed" is subjective. In toddler circles, a belt, hat and socks is considered a complete outfit.
  10. The circle of life is hard. This is a time for healing, not blaming. Healing with some cake I don't know I'm just talking
