What makes your toddler cry?



  1. I love this!!! I'm thinking I should keep a hidden journal and write a similar entry each week to share with my little one when he's all grown up and expecting his own little one!!

  2. hahaha I love this & can so relate. This sounds so much like my toddler at the moment. She's crying for very similar reasons. :-D xx


  3. Haha, I want an alligator too! Sort of.. #brillblogposts

  4. Lol! No. 15 and 17 are my faves

  5. Awesome! She wants to carry Mommy! She can't find a spider! Hilarious & amazing! #brilliantblogposts

  6. Brilliant. I think it's a bit unreasonable of you to not have a variety of shaped crackers. C'mon, mama, get your act together ;-)

  7. Haha hilarious :) sounds a lot like my 9 month old! add in because I wont let her have the remote control or eat my phone!

  8. Poor kid! How lifes little stresses can get in the way of their fun ;). #brillblogposts

  9. This is funny. Today my toddler cried because he got felt tip pen on his hands and then cried when I scrubbed it off because he wanted it back on there!

  10. Haha love it. My toddler cried today because I wouldn't get out of the car and help the men fix the road! #brilliantblogposts xx

  11. Ah those are a lot of good reasons - Boo has similar reasons - we had crying today because Boo wanted to brush her teeth --- after she had just finished brushing her teeth!
