From around the web: Laugh don't cry

The big Web offers a wide range of ways to keep already sleep-deprived parents from going to bed when the house is finally quiet.  If it's any consolation, you're not alone!

Reasons My Son Is Crying (Tumblr site)
Reasons being a toddler is tough.  When private pictures of normal kids crying over normal things went viral, Dad had to explain himself in the Christian Science Monitor.  But back to the question: Why is this kid crying?

“He asked me to put butter on his rice. I put butter on his rice."

Adults can look pretty funny, too.

Now go to bed!
