There is an SPCA commercial on tv that is a cartoon with a guy who gets a job overseas, and the whole time there is this orange cat who looks just like my cat sitting there and then it has to go to the shelter cause the guy doesn't take the cat with him. I didn't just cry, I got so upset I had to leave the room. I was hysterical for about 15 minutes.
What silly things have you cried about? - Page 3
This afternoon I picked my almost 12yo son up from the airport. He was returning from a 2w long visit with his father. As I was waiting for him it took everything I had not to sob. I missed him so much but felt like I should be more composed like, you know, everyone else at the airport.
I would have been sobbing! My son turns 12 in January on the 24th! 2 weeks is a long time to be away from one of your kiddos, even a nearly 12 year old who is "big" now.
My kids each had a sleep over at different friends' houses a couple of weeks ago (my daughter is 10) and I missed them SO much for that one night. It was so sad! Then I started thinking about what if I never knew them at all and they weren't even my kids, but someone else's and I broke down. When they came home the next day I squeezed them both super hard and then followed them around the house all day long. They both just rolled their eyes at me and told each other how crazy I was. lol
Much to the detriment of my pocketbook I have historically been great about passing on my no longer needed baby clothes. Because I wasn't having another baby. And then I had another baby. etc etc etc. I just got done folding and getting ready the spring/summer outgrown clothes of my youngest daughter to take to consignment.
I'm never going to have another baby girl. I'm also the kind of person who doesn't really understand being disappointed with the sex of my developing baby. I figure I get what I get and that's awesome! I don't feel at all upset that I'm pregnant with a little boy, I'm so very excited to learn who he is yet somehow, in the twilight zone of my gestating mind, I'm feeling uncharacteristically sad about no more newborn and infant girls.
On the way home from the vet at 7:30 this morning, still dark out, I don't know if I was crying because my baby kitty was all grown up (yes, we've been TTC for a year, and I have babied the cat and people are constantly accusing me of treating him as a surrogate baby), or because Bruno Mars "Just the Way You Are" was on the radio (not even a genre of music I enjoy), I just started bawling!
