Book Review: Reasons My Kid is Crying

cryingYou may be familiar with the tumblr “Reasons My Kid is Crying” where one man posted pics of his kids and the ridiculous reasons (to us adults, anyway) that they are crying and then other parents started joining in and sending why their kids were crying as well. This site has given me hours of entertainment so I was really looking forward to checking out the book as well.

It’s mainly a picture book, very little text for each section of the book and then of course the captions on all the photos as to why the kid is crying. Some of them made me laugh out loud and I am sure you will get a kick out of them too. Whether or not you have a child you’ll find this book entertaining – but maybe moreso if you do have kids and have often had to deal with such meltdowns yourself.

Some of the reasons include – you wouldn’t let your kid continue licking their shoe, trying to eat poo or maybe sand or dirt. Or maybe you made them eat their favorite meal – or maybe it was their least favorite meal that triggered the melt down. With these kids you never know – it could be anything at any time – even a high five!

I received a free copy of this book from Blogging For Books in order to write this review. I was not otherwise compensated.


About the Book

A glimpse into the tribulations of parenting that is part documentary, part therapy, and completely hilarious.
It all started when busy father Greg Pembroke posted a few pictures online of his three-year-old son, mid-tantrum, alongside the reason his son was crying: He had broken his bit of cheese in half. InReasons My Kid is Crying, Greg collects together photos sent from parents around the world, documenting the many, completely logical reasons why small children cry.  Among them: “I let him play on the grass” . . . “He ran out of toys to throw into his pool” . . . “The neighbor’s dog isn’t outside”.  The result is both an affectionate portrait of the universal, baffling logic of toddlers—and a reminder for burned-out parents everywhere that they are not alone.

Product Review: M>Notes notepad

Disclosure: I got this product as part of an advertorial.

When I am traveling, I often carry around notebooks with me and write things down.  My past trip to Tulsa I forgot my notebook for part of the trip so I needed an alternative.  Luckily for me I had just installed m>notes on to my new phone and was able to use it.

I really liked that you can get colored notebooks to organize things.  So my setlists can be in one color notebook and notes or blog post drafts can be put in a different colored notebook so that I can keep track of what is what and stay more organized.  (Which makes things way more organized then when I have a physical notebook with me!)

m> notes is designed to be convenient to use and makes it easy to focus on what’s important – your notes’ content and context.
Key Features:
– Consistent sliding navigation
– Organize your notes and sub-notes into colored notebooks
– Add photos to your notes, make photos with your camera or choose a picture from the gallery
– Action Bar provides context information even on older devices
– Drag and drop to reorder notes
– Share your notes via Twitter, Facebook, email, etc.
– Backup to Dropbox
– Backup to SD-card

m>notes was a lifesafer on my last trip and I am sure that I will be using it more and more on future trips! I always remember to grab my phone before I leave the hotel room – I don’t always remember to grab my notepad.  Now I don’t have to worry!

I received one or more of the products mentioned above for free using Regardless, I only recommend products or services I use personally and believe will be good for my readers.
