Most toddlers will cry over almost anything, but not all have web-savvy fathers who see their tikes’ meltdowns as a way to have a laugh online.
Greg Pembroke, of Rochester, N.Y., has started a Tumblr page, “Reasons My Son is Crying,” devoted to his sons’ temper tantrums.
“I’m just trying to have fun with something that’s going to happen no matter what I do,” Pembroke explained on “Good Morning America” today.
From tears over a piece of broken cheese, to riding in the car seat, to the volume of “The Hokey Pokey” being turned down from “ear-splittingly loud” to only “mind-numbingly loud,” the adoring dad snaps photos of his 20-month-old, Charlie, and three-year-old, William, mid-meltdown and captions them accordingly. The result couldn’t be more hilarious.
“They have little meltdowns all the time,” Pembroke told ABCNews.com. “They just cry for like seven seconds and then are on to the next thing. Anyone that has toddlers or has been around toddlers knows it can be very frustrating. But what I was trying to do is get some humor out of it.”
Pembroke is blown away by all the attention his tearful Tumblr is receiving.
“I didn’t expect anybody to see this outside my family and friends, to be honest,” he said.
When asked how long Pembroke will continue to update the Tumblr with his boys’ temper tantrums, he replied, “Until it stops being fun for the boys and fun for us.”
