Point/Counterpoint: Reasons My Daughter Is Psyched (Photos)

The Tumblr Reasons My Son Is Crying became the latest Internet sensation this week. The blog was featured on Good Morning America and its main subject was photographed by Brandon Stanton of Humans of New York (a high honor!). The site’s popularity makes perfect sense to me; when you’ve got a cryer on your hands the only thing that will get you through it is laughing about it. I can relate – my daughter has always been a cryer. But the great thing about kids who like to cry is that they have big emotional lives, and so I catch my daughter laughing, feeling joyful, being delighted, sweet and contemplative as much as she is whiny or teary.

Ever since my daughter was born, she’s had this amazing, crazy psyched face that she likes to do, and it’s one of my favorite things about life. So I thought I’d put together a slideshow that proves for every crying kid out there, there’s hope. Sure, you may be crying right now because Buzz Lightyear’s knee is bent, but you can also get out-of-your-mind psyched just because the sun is out. That said, here are 15 Reasons My Daughter is Psyched:
