Tonight my oldest had a melt down. Nothing unusual about that. I’m generally dealing with a tantrum at least four times a day from at least one of my kids. That’s the bonus of having four of them. It can be frustrating to deal with them and sometimes you have to look at it from a point of humour. Otherwise you might hit meltdown mode yourself. So, here’s a list of the often ridiculous reasons my kids are crying just from this year to give you a laugh.
Reasons My Kids Are Crying
- My 8 yo hit meltdown mode because Daddy was “taking her life” by using her hairbrush to brush her 3 yo sister’s hair.
- My 3 yo cries because she wanted to sweep the kitchen floor with the broom I was using to do that task.
- My 3 yo cries because Nana looked in her direction.
- My 4 yo cries because he wants to sit next to me at dinner.
- My 3 yo cries because she was told to stop climbing on the chair I was sitting on incase I stood up and it toppled over.
