Just to make me feel better.

DD aged 2 has just had an hour long meltdown because she didn't want to go to the park. I never asked if she wanted to go to the park. I feel this may be related to the fact she got 3 hours sleep last night.

Give me your 'why the fuck are you crying' stories please!!

Because I told her that the cheerios we had just purchased were for both her and daddy. Full on screaming that she can't have cheerios for breakfast now but daddy could. Took me 10 minutes to get her to realise they were for her as well as daddy. Shed 3 btw and going through a lovely overdramatic stroppy phase that is slowly sucking the life out of me.

He dropped an acorn on the school run.

The screaming lasted for about 40 minutes.

@Dobbythesockelf the life is slowly being drained out of me too. High 5!

I gave him a roast beef sandwich. He loves roast beef sandwiches. He cried actual tears and hit the sandwich in a rage. He is 15 months old confused

I vacuumed

@BuntyII roast beef sandwiches are never worth crying over

My 2 yr old cried because she couldn't move the stool. Then cried more when I moved it for her. Then cried extra hard when I moved it back so she could move it herself confused

I don't have a toddler but I witnessed a poor woman being screamed at by her toddler a few days ago. He was screaming, "I miss you! I miss you!" while she was saying "I'm right here!"

DD aged 4 cried for 20 minutes because her brother was leaning on the yellow book to do his homework and she wanted the yellow book. He then switched to a different book so she could have the yellow book and she cried even more because she now wanted the blue book he was leaning on!

DS3 cried for half an hour at lunch time because he was running around the front room, fell down and broke the biscuit in his hand.. He kept telling me he needs a new one and wouldn't understand that if he ate it it would break anyway! Eventually he ate it but made sure I knew he wasn't happy about it.

My 2 year old cried because his big sister told him he was "the loveliest little brother in the world" confused think he misunderstood! He kept saying NO I'M NOT and crying. Then dd got cross and started shouting YES YOU ARE. It was all very confusing!

I gave him water in his cup when clearly he wanted it in the used pint glass that was already on the table and I hadn't realised this through my psychic abilities. Proper tragic sobs.

Caffe my ds cries about any broken food. Bananas are the worst he always wants me to stick the banana back on.

Ellen7262 Mon 10-Sep-18 16:55:20

@foxessocks that is EXTREMELY cute

Ellen7262 Mon 10-Sep-18 16:56:26

@DappledThings can you please ensure you are psychic in the future to avoid traumatising your child through choice of cup

I had my two screaming earlier on because they were playing with each other’s bin lorries. They are the exact same bin lorry. I bought them so they wouldn’t fight 🙄

My 4yo upon getting home from nursery asked what was in the parcel on the table. I told her it was her Granny's Christmas present. She then started shouting at me that it wasn't wrapped and it wasn't a proper present and I shouldn't get the postman to deliver them I should buy them and wrap them. And that I could never buy any Christmas or birthday presents again hmmconfused

I pulled my boys pyjama leg down (it had rolled up over his knee) he's 3 and utterly livid.

3yo ds was in floods today because was too scared too climb down from the top of the climbing frame thing at the park but he didn't want me lifting him off.
Cue me having to climb up and sit in it cuddling him for 10 minutes til he was calm enough to let me lift him down.

He fell asleep about 5 minutes later and had to be carried home so he must have been knackered tho

Aworldofmyown Mon 10-Sep-18 17:04:57

Because I moved he car seat to the seat he wanted it moved too!

chickedychicked Mon 10-Sep-18 17:06:01

Because I wouldn't let her climb up my hair like rapunzal does.hmm

BabySharkAteMyHamster Mon 10-Sep-18 17:06:01

Dobby, my kid once had a 3 hour tantrum because she could see the milk through the holes in her cheerios 🤔hmm

BubbleSea Mon 10-Sep-18 17:06:30

Also 1yo dd last night because her sock had come off.
Normally it's because I've had the cheek to put socks on her so at least it was a change.

Apparently I was looking at him... that’s the only info I got in the aftermath of the meltdown. Yesterday it was due to me telling him I had a box with 100 plasters in it, he told me I didn’t- cue meltdown
