Meaning this in a lighthearted manner!

Before having children I thought that they would cry a lot as babies but as they grew this would stop. I remember being shocked that my friends 4 year old still cried multiple times a day. Now I have my own toddler I get it! Tears because their tired, because they don't want to go to bed, because I gave them the wrong cup, because I stopped them running under a lorry etc etc!

Just wondering if there's a stage they get to when they just stop? I may celebrate that day for years to come. Or are we in for the long haul..... wink

Dd is 6 and I can't remember the last time she cried. Not sure when it stopped being daily but probably about a year ago. My boys are older, no idea with them!

I'm thirty <cough> <cough> and I would say I haven't made it yet grin

DS1 is 11 and rarely cries unless he has a migraine. DS2 is 6 and isn't much of a crier, either, but cried today when we watched Up at the bit where they lose the baby. I've no idea why it gets to him but it just kills me every time.

I don't have your experience, my three babies rarely cried.

DS never cried, just sucked his fist if hungry. I have only seen him cry twice in his life, he is 16.

They very rarely cried as babies... Currently 6 and 3 years and loads of crying today!

Dd is 2 and can go a good few days without crying

Every day? DD would have been 1.5ish, she's a generally contented sort of child. Probably a day when her brother wasn't around though! DS maybe 3, he was more sensitive and is still more inclined to burst into tears if thwarted, DD gets cross.

Ds2 is 7 and still cries when he's physically hurt himself.
Other than that it's pretty much a constant whingeing when he doesn't get his own way.

Ds1 is 11 and hormonal and fills up quite a lot at the injustice of his life.

Lots of drama here grin

Gloria that made me chuckle

And woo I totally get the up thing... I bawl every time!! x

DD1, probably about 3. She's now 5 and rarely cries but she does sulk (cross her arms and turn her back).

Dd was 2y and 8m when she had her first day without crying. I was astounded at the time. smile

I'm 27 and I still cry almost every day...

I think as soon as they could communicate, so around 1.

Mine have cried today when one hit the other, then the hitter cried when told off. Cried when I made him leave his dummy in bed. Cried when fell over. Cried when I turned the TV off. Cried when one broke the other's Lego model. Both cried when I made dinner and actually expected them to eat it. Cried when it was bedtime.

Mine seem to cry a lot more then everyone else's!??

I think my SD wins, she's 6.5 and cries probably two or three times a day still.
