Reasons My Kid Is Crying

Last week my sister-in-law sent us a link to this blog called “Reasons My Son Is Crying”. It’s pretty stinking hilarious. Basically, the boys’ parents just post photos of the ridiculous things that their toddler is crying over. It’s really funny but, the reality is, any parent of a 2- or 3-year old knows that life with a toddler is just a series of tantrums, almost-tantrums, and just-got-over-tantrums.

Since David throws a fit about once an hour, I thought it would be pretty easy for me to do my own post on the ridiculous reasons my kid is crying. Turns out, I was able to snap all of these photos in just a few days–piece of cake. And, since it’s a lot more fun to laugh at a crying kid than to join him, here are are the reasons why my kid was crying this week:

He wants the string off his balloon.


He doesn’t want me to sing Jesus Loves Me.


He wants me to put the basketball hoop in the other room.

He wants to sit on his bed (note that he is sitting on his bed).


His basketball hoop doesn’t fit inside a box.

Daddy tried to say “Hi” to him.

And, last but not least…

The dog won’t sit for him.

It’s tough being a toddler, but somebody’s got to do it. Thanks for humoring us, David!

    so precious—good times Allison! I’m glad you are keeping you sense of humor, although this grandma has never seen a single tantrum from David. OK maybe one or two……..:)
