Reasons why my daughter is crying

Everybody is talking about crying babies and it’s all thanks to Greg Pembroke, who started to record the reasons his son was crying on Facebook. This then evolved into a Tumblr site, Reasons My Son is Crying, and then it went viral. As happens these days.

So, over the past month, I decided to record the reasons why Baby was crying. Although we aren’t quite there yet, the Terrible Twos seems to have hit our house early and crying is a regular feature at Casa Boggio (mostly her, sometimes me).

The biggest problem I found with this project is that, when I took the iPhone out to snap the picture, the iPhone then became the reason she was crying. “Ee-eye-oh! Ee-eye-oh!” she would start shouting through her tears, Ee-Eye-Oh being her pet name for the iPhone due to an early Old Macdonald App she used to enjoy.

Anyway, I hope you like these. I know they’ll keep me chuckling for years to come.

    this made me chuckle. We are there SO much too. We went through a stage recently when my daughter who i think is a similar age to yours will ONLY wear one of the three london 2012 t shirts she has. ONLY those. Did i cave in?……

    *says under breath* only went and sent the grandmother to the London 2012 shop in John Lewis in London to buy up all the sale stock.

    I have no shame..but i also like to stay sane ;)
