Becoming a Mom Made Me a Crybaby


“Before having kids I rarely cried. In fact, it might have been weird how little I cried. Emotional moments around other people made me uncomfortable. It’s not like the end of The Notebook isn’t sob worthy. I just didn’t ever want to share that with the people I was watching it with. I was going through life totally kid-less and cool as a cucumber with all of my emotion sharing appropriately in check. Nobody was more surprised than I was that becoming a mom made me a big cry baby.

Irrational. That’s what pre-mom me thought about moms crying over things having to do with their kids. . . . “

  1. OMG, I so relate! It all started during pregnancy with those dastardly hormones, making me get super emotional and cry during commercials. Psh… then it just kept up.

  2. Hey Lacey– read through your Moms post– you have so many great topics. I cry watching sentimental tv commercials! I think your saying after you have kids you know how important and dear those kinds of relationships are! And maybe hormones (as stated above).
