I hate it when my son cries. I want to pick him up and hug away everything that is upsetting him. I feel the pain that he is in as if it were my own.
But there are some days that he cries for the most absurd reasons. Reasons so bizarre that I find myself looking on in amazement with an 'are you for real' look on my face. My stress levels start to rise and I have no idea what to think or how to react.
Inspired by Greg Pembroke's Reasons My Son Is Crying blog (you MUST take a look at this as it's hilarious), here's some of the most recent reasons why CK has seen fit to cry, scream and throw himself on the floor.
- he wasn't allowed to lie on the bed and kick me in the back while I fed BB.
- he had cereal for breakfast and not the requested spaghetti with lollipops.
- I called him angel.
- because BB should live with his grandparents and not with us.
- because Lego's not a game that can be played at 3:30am.
- because he dreamt that the little girl from next door came in his room and hit him while he was sleeping.
- he couldn't suck up his fried rice with a straw.
- because I called Coke Coke when it should be called Lemonly.
- he wasn't allowed to spoon sugar out of the bag in to his mouth.
- he couldn't wear four pairs of underpants over his nappy.
- And those are in just one week.
Please tell me I'm not alone. What are the strangest things your little one has cried about?
