Parenting is a rollercoaster – just ask every parent in the world! One moment you have an adorable, angelic kid but the next, you get one who is throwing a fit and he starts crying all of a sudden, sometimes for no apparent reason.

Yet, there are moments when you just have to pick up the camera and take a photo of your kid throwing tantrums – mostly because he’s doing it for the craziest reasons!

One dad, Greg Pembroke, had a brilliant idea of posting photos of his son crying. It would have been just another parenting blog except that he captioned the photos with the reasons why his son was crying. The results? Hilarious! The blog got so popular that other users began contributing their own photos as well.

Check out some of the top picks from the blog:
