I’ll Cry If I Want To!

December 10, 2010

I really don’t think I was an emotional lady until after I contracted motherhood.  Not much made me shed a tear.  
When I became pregnant with Princess Moriah, I couldn’t understand or figure out why I was so weepy about everything.  I mean, come on, it’s a dog food commercial!!!   
Well, whatever causes this never goes away.  Tonight I was washing dishes and those rotten tears just kept pouring down my face.  Little Princess Eden, bankie in hand, came over and touched my skirt to get my attention.  As I looked at her through very watery eyes she said, “Sit...down.”  I sat straight down on the rug. “”  That’s all it took, I scooped her in my arms, squeezed her tight and cried as long as I wanted.  She didn’t mind at all.  
I’m the mom, I’ll cry if I want to.

Cry on, dear one! After Teddy was born, I was the most emotional basket case you can imagine. I know, he's adopted so it couldn't be post partum - - could it????? That's the only explanation I've ever been able to come up with. Nurturing him caused huge hormonal shifts which in turn brought on the post partum reaction. Hey, I was living in a fishbowl - the mission guest house - and managed to NOT bite anyone's head off! Crying was the safest way to release all that emotion. So I did! Hug those beautiful babies and let the tears fall where they may! Even my happy tears came more frequently - - one look at my son, and the faucet opened up! Cry and laugh and give thanks for the love that your Father is pouring out on you! Love you!
