Details: Product Description A glimpse into the tribulations of parenting that is part documentary, part therapy, and completely hilarious.   It all started when busy father Greg Pembroke posted a few pictures online of his three-year-old son, mid-tantrum, alongside the reason his son was crying: He had broken his bit of cheese in half. In Reasons My Kid is Crying, Greg collects together photos sent from parents around the world, documenting the many, completely logical reasons why small children cry.  Among them: “I let him play on the grass” . . . “He ran out of toys to throw into his pool” . . . “The neighbor’s dog isn’t outside”.  The result is both an affectionate portrait of the universal, baffling logic of toddlers—and a reminder for burned-out parents everywhere that they are not alone.

Disappoint them at your peril. he couldn’t take the gumdrop pass. it wasn’t raining inside. he climbed into the dishwasher. i wouldn’t let him crawl into a 400°f oven. i said the sponge is not food. he can’t eat his dad’s phone. we wouldn’t let him drag his new bookshelf into the living room. she wanted to tear up my twenty-­dollar bill. i asked her to please stop licking the bottom of her shoe. she wanted to be a princess. dispatches • from • the • front • lines The great thing about kids is that because they know so little of the world, everything is new and exciting to them. Recently my son and I were having a great time wrestling on the floor, laughing and giggling—­a perfect father-­son moment. That is, until he started staring at my hands. I guess he had never noticed my knuckles before. He hated the look of that weird, wrinkly, bunched-­up skin—­and started tugging on it, demanding that I “take it off.” When I explained that it just wasn’t possible for me to rip off my own knuckles, our fun-­filled afternoon wrestlefest turned into the eighth sobbing fit of the day. we told him that he was too young for beer. swimming in the dog’s water bowl wasn’t as fun as she thought it would be. he got stuck. the neighbor’s dog isn’t outside. the dog would not sit still long enough for him to eat her tail. he ate his peach, then got mad that his peach was gone. 2 recipe for disaster Parents know that nutritious, homemade meals are necessary to make sure that your kids grow up healthy and strong. Toddlers know that mealtime is a broccoli-­filled Thunderdome where only the strongest, smartest, and fastest will survive. i made him chicken nuggets—­aka his favorite meal. his instant oatmeal was not, in fact, instant. she demanded a new fork. now she wants the old fork back. i wouldn’t put salt on her apricots. her popsicle was cold. i let him drink his smoothie in the car. this teddy graham lost its head. we thought he might like to try peas. i took the glass of red wine away from her. we had to put the cupcakes we were making into the oven to bake. the last piece of banana fell out of the peel. the banana is over. he wanted me to put the crust back onto the toast. i told her that i had to wash her face after dinner. a fly landed near him. i told him to stop stuffing his supper down his pants. dinner was not served quickly enough. reas
