    So this dad takes photos of his son and then captions them with the real reason his son is crying. I think if I were his son, I'd find it hilarious when I was older. Good going Dad!

    I saw it too and about died. The kid will hate it when he's a snotty teen who thinks he's all that, but will think its hilarious when he has kids of his own, lol!

    The dad and his sons were on Good Morning America this morning; it's the first I heard of the blog. Hilarious!

    My favorite is "I have no idea why my son is crying"

    TOTALLY reminds me of my contrarian daughter. And if you DIDN'T do something--slice cheese, cut the crusts off a sandwich, slice the sandwich diagonally and NOT in squares (or the reverse), it was a total tragedy.

    The kid doesn't appear to be much more than 80 weeks old. I doubt he has a concept of "Tuesday."

    Then it's probably that the milk is in the wrong cup!

    A recently married friend of mine said that this Tumblr is more effective than her birth control :lol:

    At 80 weeks (OMG- how long do you count babies ages in weeks? That's almost 2 years old...) kids can understand time and patterns. By this point in time, most would be used to having a day where Mom is no there. Just like the 1 year olds I had who did once a week preschool. Even though it was different from the everyday routine, they always remembered they had 1 day the previous week, and it became routine. Kids generally do well with routine.

    The caption seems (to me) to be implying "Isn't it silly that my son is crying because mommy isn't there when he woke up. She's never there when he wakes up on Tuesdays. He should be used to this by now."

    But from the kid's point of view, I doubt he's thinking "Oh, right, Tuesday. Mommy isn't here. Blah, Tuesdays suck."

    Probably more like "Mommy isn't here again. I hate it when she isn't here!" with no concept of how many days it's been since the last time she wasn't there.

    The reason his son is crying? Because he gets soooooooooo much attention when he's doing it. ;)

    My coworker's 2-year-old will start WAILING when her mother dares to try and go the bathroom by herself. When I saw it, I was :rofl: although another friend was trying to comfort the 2-year-old.

    I would totally be the kind of parent to make this kind of Tumblr. :D

    My son doesn't cry that often, though he does have breakdowns over silly stuff like this. He usually just yells NO! NO! NO! or gives me the pouty face. The latter is way more effective, if I have been stern on something (like don't drink the bath water, by god, why does bathwater taste good?) he pouts, looks silly/adorable doing it, I laugh, he gets rid of stern mom. I think he is manipulating me...
