I was recently introduced to the #whymykidiscrying hashtag on Instagram. And I’m hooked. Don’t get me wrong, I hate to see Luke cry…it breaks my heart. But, the reasons why he cries 90% of the time…completely crack me up.

Here are some of my favorites:

10750325_677948519323_6808038670440617439_o
because dad tried to teach me how to pick a lock. #dontwannabeacriminal
10848599_677949612133_9039427890479488988_o
because there was a weird cupcake looking thing sitting in my chair.
10272710_677949617123_8460417934997936338_o
because mom embarrassed me by hauling me, sister, and our life belongings around on a baggage cart for 5 days.
1962332_677949602153_2698301735293519010_o
because I did not want to sit on a throne like my queenie sister.
10633483_677949607143_8227147257954163966_o
because mom put this hat on me. I don’t care if it’s cold, it ain’t my flow.
10403923_677948524313_2403601222516834973_o
because mom told me I might have The Ebola. She works in news, doesn’t she understand it’s not cool to scare the general public?? Oh, wait….
10841894_677940819753_541893309842121696_o
because sister sat in my golf ball basket.
10869624_677940814763_4731896790410927749_o
because this dog wouldn’t let me color her back with chalk.
10848724_677940824743_6841579963829596672_o
because mom told me we’d be Cubs fans for life….aka, losers.
1267915_677940829733_1931508423916865204_o
because mom put this life vest on me. Said something about keeping me from drowning…pffft, I’m like Chuck Norris, I always float.
10604406_677940919553_7245507018798228082_o
because all of my horses lost at the track.
1267915_677940929533_4883809296065383713_o
because mom and dad made me sit on this step next to the one-legged marshmallow man WITHOUT my laser gun. Didn’t they know that Marshmallow thing coulda killed me?
10841783_677941213963_2752057848568655126_o
because mom thought it would be funny to include me in this weird viral trend involving a bucket of ice cold water. I would have just cut a check.
10848855_677941198993_2285696102147378308_o
because that dog was judging my driving skillz.
10847405_677941203983_6418965327690826107_o
because dad thought it was cute to put the ugly glasses he wears on my face.
10818207_677941218953_3613522843707447748_o
because mom is ALWAYS trying to jam up my style with “picture time”
10515126_677941308773_2632850794575057029_o
and again with this “picture time”
10854199_677941298793_484594861720577718_o
and again….this time at the pumpkin patch.
10682216_677941303783_1509017851635244718_o
because they tried to give me these childish plastic tools for my belt. Humiliating, I tell you.

because the lid wouldn’t come off the laundry detergent. I’m just trying to get things done around here.

and, because…Santa.
