As a Mom to 5 kids, I have seen my share of melt downs over the past 15 years, and funny reasons kids cry. Most the time when my “little humans” cry my heart cries right along with them. I want to wipe away their tears, kiss their ouchy better and snuggle them until they feel better.  But other times it is all I can do to keep it together and not bust out laughing at them.  Let’s face it there are some FUNNY REASONS KIDS CRY! It is not that we do not love our kids and have turned heartless, it is just flat out funny.

my-kid-lost-it-today-funny-reasons-kids-cry-silly-reason-why-my-child-was-crying-parenting-tips-and-hacks FUNNY REASONS KIDS CRY

Last month we had my daughters 9th birthday party, we were decorating cupcakes.  I put a bright and colorful number 9 on top and everyone started to sing Happy Birthday To You.  Just then my 2 year old daughter busted out crying, as if we broke her heart. We kept singing but were trying not to laugh at the same time. Funny thing is she cryings every time she hears that song. Not sure why, but if you sing the happy birthday song  to her and she bust out crying!

Funny Reason Kids Cry GIVEAWAY

This made me think, I bet other parents have stories to share of funny reasons kids cry. So lets make a little game/ giveaway of funny reasons kids cry.  Go back through your phone and find photos of your kids losing it, and make sure you leave a comment of WHY they were crying.  You can add as many photos as you want, each one counts as an entry.  By sharing the photo you are giving us permission to post the photo on our site or social media channels.  PLEASE only share photos of your own children, do NOT search the internet for random kids… only share photos of your own kids.

You can share the photos on this post in the comment below, or you can share the photo on our facebook live video (that I will link to after I do the video).  In one week we will put all the entrees into a 3rd party and pick a winner. The winner will receive a $30 visa gift card!

I am excited to be a brand ambassador for Superior Source, this is a sponsored conversation, all opinions are my own.

superior source vitamins

Did your Mom ever tell you, you are what you eat?  When I was a teen I could eat pretty much anything and feel just fine, and eat crazy amounts too.  Fast forward a few years, and 5 kids later my body lets me know very quickly what is good for me and what is not.  It is amazing how quickly I feel sluggish, tired and run down when I do not eat right. But sometimes it is hard to get all the right foods.  I have noticed keeping up on taking  vitamins helps me feel better and have a little more spring in my step.  I have been taking Superior Source Vitamins the last few months and I really like them. My favorite part is how fast they dissolve, yes that is right you do not swallow them.

Superior Source Vitamins  Has Something 4 Everyone! Stay Fit and Vitamin Healthy this summer starting with Microlingual® tablets from Superior Source. Now it’s FUN to take vitamins with NO PILLS to SWALLOW! With over 180 vitamins, there are vitamins for everyone, young old and every need. Best of all, Superior Source Vitamins are MicroLingual® with “Under the Tongue Technology” that works fast, and are quickly absorbed into the body, dissolving in seconds. Did you know that… by swallowing supplements, as much as 50% of the potency is lost in the high acid environment of the stomach.

What Makes Superior Source Vitamins Unique:

  • No pills to swallow – dissolves in seconds
  • GMO FREE and Sugar FREE
  • 90% smaller than regular vitamins
  • No binders, fillers, dyes or preservatives
  • Only 3 clean ingredients
  • Over 180 vitamins to choose

 Items you can get for FREE right now (Just pay shipping)

Something 4 Everyone Giveaway package, will include ($70 Value!)

To Enter to for the chance to WIN, leave a comment below telling us what vitamin you are most excited to try.

Children’s Vitamin D – works in conjunction with calcium to promote the development and maintenance of strong bones and teeth. Our Vitamin D products are D3, the finest source of Vitamin D available.

Vitamin K2 – supports normal blood clotting and the formation of prothrombin.

Aloe Vera – supports healthy digestive functions and regular elimination when taken internally. Superior Source’s Aloe Vera Concentrated Powder is mixed with water to provides 60 servings of 10,000 mg of Aloe Vera from a 200 to 1 concentrate of aloe leaf gel.

Vitamin B12 – are No Shot B-12 Instant Dissolve MicroLingual® Tablets that go to work fast, under the tongue. This concept is critical for B-12 supplementation. With regular B-12 supplements, as much as 50% of the B-12 potency is lost in the high acid environment of the stomach.

Women’s Iron – helps maintain optimum levels of iron in women. Ferrous fumarate helps restore iron levels in the body when levels are low. The ferrous fumarate salt may help reduce the chances of getting gastro-intestinal problems which are sometimes associated with other iron salts.

CoQ10 – is present in most energy-producing areas of the body and appears to have a connection to the support of healthy heart function among other possible protective and regulatory functions.
