Greg Pembroke, a 32-year-old father of two boys under the age of 4, has seen his share of temper tantrums and decided to share his fatherhood experiences through a single topic blog called Reasons My Son is Crying. What began as simply posting pictures on Facebook* for family and friends has turned into an internet sensation through Tumblr. The blog, which most parents could relate to, primarily features images of Pembroke's 21-month-old son Charlie throwing a tantrum, though 3 1/2-year-old big brother William also makes appearances with his crying fits. The two boys can be seen sobbing over anything from simply witnessing a block cheese being split in two to, ironically, demanding to see a picture of themselves crying. Each image is also accompanied by a hilarious caption by Pembroke that playfully emphasizes the unpredictable nature of his sons' meltdowns. Even when the doting dad is trying to protect Charlie by providing a pillow to cushion the tiny tot's head, the toddler reacts by bawling. Sometimes, though, even Pembroke admits "I have no idea why my son is crying."
"I turned the volume of The Hokey Pokey down… from 'ear-splittingly loud' to only 'mind-numbingly loud'."
"I didn’t show him pictures on my phone quickly enough - and yes, they were pictures of him crying."
