My toddler is crying because he asked for water and I poured him water.

Earlier today my toddler was crying because he wanted pancakes. I know, pancakes are delicious, that seems reasonable. NO. He was still residual crying about wanting to eat pancakes WHILE eating the pancakes that I kindly made for him.

Yesterday my toddler was crying because I put his two identical slices of toast together to make a sandwich per his request, but I put the wrong slice on top.

Somewhere I have a video of that same toddler weeping because he wanted peanut butter on his toast while sitting next to his toast which is obviously covered with peanut butter.

Toast seems to lead to a lot of tears for him.

Right now he's crying because solipsistnation is trying to get his jacket (which is hung on a hook about 6 feet up) down for him and he wants to do it himself despite this being pretty much impossible.

ETA: and now because someone tried to hold a door open for him.

Mine is crying because I didn't read the title page of the book she demanded I read to her.

A couple of weeks ago the larger child burst into tears because, I guess, the sheet on his bed had come kind of untucked in one corner? Like, serious weeping while I tucked it back in (which took about 5 seconds).

This thread (and the website that inspired it) is wonderfully hilarious.

Mine was crying at 10pm, 2am, and 5am a couple of days ago because she wanted the tissue that I reminded her was under her pillow the whole time. She didn't want to use it, just to check that it was there.

It's kind of like with pets. Some people who aren't into living with animals wonder why I choose to live with these dependent creatures who vomit on the carpet and take over the bed and wake me up and need their poo picked up and so on. And I'm like, I can't really explain it if you're just not into it, but the richness it adds to my life makes the inconveniences tolerable and even amusing, overall. It's like that with children but amplified a million in both directions.

That's such a great analogy! I've never had a hankering for a baby (despite admiring and cooing over every single one I see), but I ALWAYS want a pet. Recently I've caught myself pondering baby-having, which is a startling new development... I think it's one part getting older and three parts having been unemployed for a long time and therefore theoretically having plenty of time to raise hypothetical humans.

Because I refused to hold a straw with my toes. (Love this thread by the way).

Ooh this is such a hard and big decision for people who are on the fence.

Yesterday my toddler was upset because he was trying to relocate all the furniture from the kitchen into the bedroom, and he was frustrated that he couldn't squeeze the step stool in there too.

I'm just shocked to be anywhere near this fence after so many years of knowing my own mind.

That's part of what makes this thread (and the teen/tween) one so fascinating--- I can't tell if I'm reading cute stories about strangers or glimpsing my own future.
