The 7 Silliest Things My Toddler Has Cried Over

Oh, toddlers.


Whew, that felt good to just get it out there. I love my little dude to death, but WOW, can he be irrational. Granted, I do not expect him to be solving riddles and having rational thoughts quite yet, but there are times where I just want to say, “WHAT ARE YOU THINKING? WHAT ARE YOU CRYING ABOUT? THIS IS A FIRST-WORLD PROBLEM.”

He wants a cup of milk, so you hand him a cup of milk and next thing you know, that cup is five feet on the other side of the room with a toddler wailing, “WHY DID YOU GIVE ME THAT CUP?!”

With the help of some fellow mom friends who’ve also been there, I’ve rounded up 7 silly things toddlers have cried over. Please tell me you relate to this or I might go cry in a corner.
