White bread, devoid of nutrients, slathered in butter...and rainbow sprinkles.
These are just some of the key components involved in making toast for a toddler — and getting him to eat his breakfast — according to a funny how-to video created by author Bunmi Laditan.
The video moves through the many, endless steps involved in satisfying a picky child, from cutting toast into triangles to removing the already added butter because you added too much.
And, spoiler alert: the toddler in Laditan's video doesn't eat his toast at the end of the tutorial, leaving Laditan to suggest eating the toast yourself while "dying inside" and "questioning your life decisions."
Laditan, who created Honest Toddler, has three children, and says she has learned to laugh at the difficult parts of parenting so that when the blissful parts happen, she's ready to enjoy them.

"I think we balance being real and enjoying the beautiful parts of parenting by just laughing about it," Laditan told TODAY Parents. "Parenting is a wild ride that I wouldn't trade for the world and laughing at the parts that make me want to scream gets me through the day."
These days, Laditan is also passing her days working on hew newest book "Confessions of a Domestic Failure," which will be released in 2017 through MRIA Books, an imprint of Harlequin.
