In many occasions we wonder what could be making our babies cry so hard, you’ll think they lost a finger only to find out that the smallest of things pulled the trigger to their unstoppable wailing. As parents we definitely panic when this happens, especially so when they are too small to articulate how they truly feel. Sometimes finding humor in this occasion is the better alternative. Here is a collection of funny pictures explaining why your baby throws a fit. Enjoy this and take it easy on parenthood.
1. Give me that ball, dad.
This little sailor is definitely in position for a ball game. However dad may have pass the ball a little too hard, he seemed to have missed it. Poor baby, if he only knew it was right behind his cute little butt.
2. Move over big fella.
He want to do some furniture rearranging and yet this monstrous dog won’t budge. This little one is pure with determination that no amount of stumbling back can change his mind about this chair.
3. The poop in the yard is the culprit.
Little miss wants to touch and play with some dog poop in the yard. You see, the texture and the color looks really inviting and hard to resist. When mom said the magic word “no” the wailing begins.
4. We see early signs of Obsessive compulsiveness here.
This baby is showing some signs of being OC. Perfection is the goal here, he has to get that last bit cereal and bring it down his mouth. You will notice that attention to detail is so prominent since the Cheerio piece lying on the table is so miniscule and yet he sees it wants to seize it with those little hands.
5. This grocery cart is Miinnne
This is a case of sibling rivalry. He use to go to the grocery with mom and own that cart like the big boss. Now little sis came along and he is required to share his leg hole with this pacifier baby, who would not be upset, right?
6. Mr. Have it all.
He is used to enjoying all his toys at home and owns each one of them. He can touch and play with everything he wishes and he has no concept whatsoever of sharing. Now brought to this play yard with plenty of other kids, grabbing and taking even those toys already in his hands is totally foreign to our cute baby here. He is in culture shock, one of many to come.
7. Self Punishment.
This little one is showing a sense of responsibility and discipline in such an early age. He supposedly disciplines himself by subjecting himself to a time out, that shows self discipline right there. As to what he believes he is responsible doing that demands this ordeal, that we are not quite sure at this point.
8. Withheld his favorite snack.
Babies can go crazy over food. Deprivation of their favorite munching results to hours of tantrums and horrific crying. Another fact is our babies put everything and anything in their mouth. Combine this two facts leads to this next picture. The parent, for all good reason, withheld his “food’ for today- Styrofoam.
9. Bath time woes.
A baby’s bath allows us many opportunities to bond with our kid. We all know the effect of skin to skin touch with your young as well as the emotional growth they experience every time we do this activity with our kids. But let us be real, moms and dads, this too can be one of the most exhausting task we need to do every single day. There will always be a drama in the bath tubs. Distraction is the key which lead to the invention of rubber ducks and other bath toys. Here’s a photo of a captured bathroom drama, only to realize how funny it actually is.
10. Headphone is not enough to cover the noise.
Our babies are a little sensitive with loud noise. They also tend to panic in a crowd. I can still remember a time I took my baby to a nearby fast food. At the middle of our meal, a group of teenagers mostly girls hover over her to admire and take pictures of her, it was terrible moment for my little one; she wailed as hard as she could, I think she got too overwhelmed. Multiply that by three in this picture and now imagine the horror this little girl must have felt. It is just too much for them.
11. Hate anything to do with buckles and constraint.
I don’t know what it is with babies, but they just hate buckles to the bones. Anything that has to do with restraint of movement even if it is for their own safety is unwelcome. This is specially true with Car seats, strollers, high chairs and even a life vest it turned out. Here’s a pic to remind us all that our little charmer is born to be free.
13. Sunscreen dilemma
Will power is something we can admire about our kids. When they want something, they will go for it despite our best efforts to reprimand or discipline. That is so because at their age they have no concept yet of obedience, and their nature is leaned towards trying out everything themselves. It is up to us to impose our rules even if results to something like this, rules like “No sunscreen during rain or winter. “
14. Fear of strangers.
Our kids are introvert in the beginning. They get used and are confident around the familiar set of people. They have a very strong sense of who their folks are and who aren’t. They have attachment issues written all over their face. Here is one good example of this phenomena, hand them to any stranger, even if it the President of the country and they will still throw a fit.
15. Playtime gone wild.
Siblings often are the best of friends and the worst of enemies. This dynamics develop early on. Don’t we all have that childhood memory of the biggest fight we had with our older brother/ sister? I say older, because in reality, the older siblings are the bullies of the younger ones. As evidenced by this shot.
