Reasons Why My Kids Are Crying: Babble Edition

The best humor comes from truth.

Witness the explosive popularity of Reasons My Son Is Crying to fully appreciate the ridiculousness of parenting. Greg Pembrooke, creator of the site, has multiplied his viralĀ Tumblog into a Twitter account, Facebook page and an appearance on Good Morning America (complete with a picture of his son crying because they tried to mic him up).

“They have little meltdowns all the time,” Pembroke told “They just cry for like seven seconds and then are on to the next thing. Anyone that has toddlers or has been around toddlers knows it can be very frustrating. But what I was trying to do is get some humor out of it.”

The 40 or so photos on that Tumblog are just the tip of the iceberg, my friends. I canvassed the crew of bloggers here at Babble to offer up their own photos of kids crying for reasons only reasonable to the child.
