Why is it that other people winning things always makes me cry?
I’m not sure if it’s just another side-effect of having a previously-occupied uterus or if I’m just getting soft in my old age, but ever since having Emma back in 2002 pretty much anything and everything makes me cry.
That commercial they show at Christmastime that plays “Silent Night” while showing all the sleeping babies? I’m crying.
That Sarah Mclaughlin commercial for the ASPCA? Don’t even get me started. I literally have to turn away.
Extreme Home Makeover? PUH-LEEEZE. I can’t even watch the beginning without breaking into tears.
Ellen giving away a new car and/or money to someone who deserves it? I’m totally weeping (oh and not just cause I need a new car AND money too).
Jack randomly kissing my back (no, really, my BACK – cause he’s a shorty) and telling me he loves me? Yep, I’ll totally cry.
Emma showing me her test scores that showed she’s in the top 2% of Colorado braniacs? Totally made me cry. Or like yesterday, when she said “Mommy, I know Christmas was a long time ago, but I just wanted to say thank you AGAIN for getting me Mr. Jinx (the kitten). You’re the best mom ever.” Here come the waterworks.
A sad news story about pretty much anything having to do with kids? Niagra Falls.
The Disney Channel being on my TV 24/7? I’m bawling (but that’s just cause I feel like Handy Manny lives here since I see him CONSTANTLY).
I’m thinking about having my tear ducts permanently closed just to make it stop…. but then I have a feeling it’d just pour out of my ears (nice visual, right?). I’m thinking investing in Kleenex should have been something I did back in 2001.
Anyway, I’m off to play some Wii, cause pretty much Princess Peach getting stolen by Bowser is the only safe, non-teary event I can count on.
