Today I discovered a tumblr blog called Reasons My Son is Crying. It is one of the funniest blogs I’ve ever seen and I can’t decide if it makes me want to have kids more (just so I can copycat his blog) or go get spayed immediately. If you don’t think kids crying is funny, you won’t enjoy that blog. If you think kids screaming over stupid things is hilarious, welcome to the club.
I immediately texted my sister and some friends with kids and told them that I was going to need them to start sending me kid crying pictures along with the tantrum explanations.
As I had predicted, it has been hilarious. This was my afternoon in a group text message:
I told him to come with me to check the mail
Trying to show him the right way to hold a popsicle
Because I’m going to the gym
No idea why. Because she’s a baby?
3 minutes later: never mind. It’s the pound of poop in her diaper.
Because I won’t give him chocolate milk (look at that finger in her face HAHA!)
Because I’m at work (adults deserve to cry, too)
Because I’m hungry but can’t eat because I’m helping everyone else eat
Because Dave won’t let me eat all the cookies tonight
Just went grocery shopping with full on tantrums and now have to make dinner with the kid crying in the background.
I think this is my new favorite thing, granted I’m not the one with the screaming kids 😀
You moms out there, tell me this, it’s GOT to make it a little easier to deal with if you can snap a photo and text it to your friends, right?? I think any situation can be made better if you can find the hilarity in it, so give it a try. See if it takes the edge off.
