It's hysterical!! It's been all over huffpost, time magazine, the today show...thanks to Laura's husband, and my husband's TA, and my sister and everyone else who posted/forwarded this.
This is pure "it's funny because it's soooo true" genius. And clearly it's gone viral because every mom and dad in the universe can relate to it.
I couldn't help but add to this popular sensation...
Reasons Scarlett is Crying:
baby Tripp, while sleeping soundly and securely in his crib, is somehow threatening to take her doggies (not real doggies, her lovies)
she's painting, but the paint is making her paper wet
a drop of her yogurt spilled on the table
she wants to do the carseat buckle by herself
she can't do the carseat buckle by herself
she needs my help to do the carseat buckle (by herself!)
she has a booger on her finger
i wiped her booger off and now she wants it back
i gave her a pacie for nap. it's not the blue pacie
she wants me to lay down with her for nap
i'm too close, or possibly my elbow is touching her, or the blanket is on her pinkie toe, or i'm laying down the wrong direction when i lay down with her for nap
the wind is blowing her hair in her face
i won't reread cat in the hat for the 14th time this hour
she drops her toy and is fearful the baby might get it
the baby actually gets her toy
the sticker won't stick anymore
the sun is not out yet at 3:48 in the morning
she has an "ouchie" and needs a bandaid
her pants are touching her bandaid
she can't wear pants anymore because of her bandaid
she has to hold my hand while crossing the street
the yellow piece is missing
it's time to go to sleep
she's not tired!
Oh my, the list could go on and on and on....
Wow, actually, rereading this makes me questions my parenting skills, hmm...Here's to hoping it's not me and she's just a particularly persnickety toddler!
What are some reasons your kid is crying at this exact minute?!
