Jeesh, is the emotional-cry-over-everything starting already? Last night watching the Gilmore Girls: boy and girl kiss- I cry, boy and girl break up- I cry, commercial at the end of the show where a dad is making animal sounds with his two boys, I cry Good thing dh didn't come out and see me, for sure he would have thought I had lost it :LOL Anyone else in the same boat (well, not crying over the Gilmore Girls , just silly stuff)?

Oh, yes!

We went to see the Pooh Heffalump movie with our friends and their little 18 month old girl. I cried during much of the movie, especially during anything that had to do with the bond between the mothers (Kanga and the mommy Heffalump) and the little ones (Roo and 'Lumpy').

It's a really good movie, by the way

An E-bay commercial made me lose it the other night--the one where the little boy loses his toy boat and then finds it on E-bay years later. I was weeping!

YES I cried during Hitch Monday night. Great movie, very funny. But I cried.

I'm going to see Because Of Winn Dixie soon (possibly Sunday afternoon) since we are getting it at our theater this weekend, I bet it makes me cry too.

OMG, I was just coming here to post about this very thing!

I cry during commercials, I cry when my kids fight, I cry when my store brand frozen pizza tastes like the box it came in, I cry because I really want a soda and we don't have any and I know I shouldn't have one anyway, I cry when a wrong number calls and wakes me up from my nap, I cry when I'm tired, I cry when I'm bored, I cry when somebody posts the same topic I had in mind before I do... well, just kidding about that one Seriously, though, I need to walk around with a box of tissues hanging around my neck! I do not remember this being so bad with my other pregnancies... It is normal though? Man!

*passes the tissues around*

We watched the movie 'The Notebook' the other night and no kidding, I cried for 30 minutes straight! Granted, my husband has a terminal illness which does impair his memory somewhat so the movie hits closer to home here than for most, but good grief I have never cried like that.

Boy did I feel lighter aferwards.

(and what a fabulous movie, btw!)

I *almost* cried yesterday when I accidently dropped the open box of pizza dropping my sister's pizza slices on the floor. I caught myself though and said to myself "It's only pizza, it's only pizza, it's only pizza." But man, just thinking about it gets me all sad. :| She didn't even care! She told me it was okay! But I still feel a lil guilty. Sheeeesh. I'd like to say I'll be glad when this stage ends, but I think I still was weepy months and months after Eva's birth! Will it EVER end?! lol

BFP= big fat positive

i cried today at the library when i was looking for books for the kids about fetal development. the part about mommy and daddy's love growing bigger and bigger just made me lose it. and look, i'm tearing up again.

Last night DH and I watched the movie "Ray" about Ray Charles...wow, what a movie. At first just a couple of tears escapes...and then a bit of sobbing after that. I don't know if any of you have seen it, but the way this movie depicted Ray's relationship with his mother even long after her death was very moving... many other things in there are very moving too. Definitely a good one to "get your cry on". Lol.

I cry at everything.
I cried watching Big Fish...even though I've seen it quite a few times...for 40 MINUTES STRAIGHT. I had to convince myself to stop crying and that it was a beautiful ending.

And this morning...well it's been a rough one.
I just found out one of my best friends from High School died on Monday night and I'm trying to figure out how to get home for the funeral.

mama to 8 year old haye  and 3 year old zao
