30 Completely Logical Reasons Why Kids Cry

Greg Pembroke’s popular blog has turned what drives many parents to the verge of insanity into a book of hilarity called ‘Reasons My Kid is Crying’. It all started when Pembroke posted a picture of his then 3 year old son crying because his cheese broke in half.  With so many being able to relate, he soon started receiving submissions from parents with a picture of their own kids turning on the waterworks and the reason of what prompted the breakdown. With reasons such as “I wouldn’t let her eat Cheerios in the bathtub” and “The postman didn’t have any mail for us today,” maybe the book will help us overlook the next meltdown and have a laugh at the reasoning behind it instead.
