20 Hilarious? Cruel? Photos of Kids Crying When They Don’t Get What They Want

The Blogger Nicole Leigh Shaw over at Ninja Mom Blog has been posting photos of kids crying, but what separates her photos from “Reasons My Son is Crying” is the hilarious captions illustrating “what kids want” vs. “what they get.”

I know when I was little I always wanted a dog. We got a hamster. I also wanted to go to Space Camp. I got regular old day camp.

My three-year-old daughter wants to wear pajamas to school (we insist she wear clothes), she wants to eat dessert for dinner (she must eat some protein first) and she wants to watch television ALL THE TIME (she gets an hour in the morning). She lets us know how these injustices make her feel through fits of tears.

As for my eight-month-old, she bursts into tears whenever she’s held by someone other than myself.

They say you have to be consistent and never give in. It’s tough but we are trying. In the meantime, I like knowing that we aren’t the only parents with a kid that turns on the waterworks every time they feel slighted by something ridiculous.
