Cheers and Tears

A Sneak Peek Inside Wifey’s House

This weekend my daughter wasn’t sleeping in church



She was singing with the angels in the children’s Easter play.

My son had two baseball games …



And decided to catch the ball with his eye instead of his glove.

Just when I think its smooth sailing this motherhood thing throws me a curve ball – no pun intend. I never thought I’d be a mom that cries at the sight of her child singing on stage or at the sight of her son’s black eye, but both of my children brought cheers and tears to my eyes this weekend.

What about you? Do you cry when your child is up or down? What curve balls has motherhood thrown you? Emotional moms want to know …

Well, tons!!! Wait until you have to take care of your parents:) Sorry, didn't meant to throw that in:( My son who is 8 decided to stand at the plate and take his helmet off because he was hot, while a 12 year old threw a ball off second base on a brono field (that's big distance for those that don't know) and bam!!!! Hit him in the head, his brother said he took it like a man. Dad told him it was ok if he needed to let out a tear. To my son's relief he let out two:)

I'm so emotional about my children that I cried when first-born started first grade - uh...I homeschool (lol). I also water up when I'm taking a nap and second born comes to check on me and asks me if I'm okay. One more? Okay! I'll never forget the first time second born asked me if I wanted him to cook dinner because I looked tired. Are they always this sweet? HECK NO, but those are the moments I like to focus on.

Wait until that precious little daughter gets dumped by some misguided boyfriend.

I can't stand it!!!

Since having my son I have become so emotional it's drives me crazy. I cry because I'm excited and I cry because I'm sad. Since I work outside of the home I cry when I see my little man do something, like clap, climb up the steps all those wonderful things, but I also cry when he gets his shots, let's just say I am not allowed to go to the doctor on the days he gets his shots. But I can totally relate.

Aw, your precious daughter and poor son! Mine up with tears when they do something for me that is completely unexpected--like sweeping the floor or clearing the dishes without being asked, when their father and I are going through tough times, and when they encourage me to keep going when it comes to my health and well-being.

I tear up for the good bad and the mediocre. Anytime I feel as though life is whizzing by and I just want to grab it and make it stop... My hormones went wacky when I was pregnant and haven't gotten settled 7 years later...

Isn't that what being a mother is all about? I am constantly amazed at how I think I have everything figured out and then I learn that I am really just making things up as I go along.

But don't tell anyone. I am hoping that someone is fooled....

The ups and downs of being am mom. I cried when my daughter was getting her blood drawn the first time, it was the very first time she called out "Mommy"

I'm not a mother, but I find myself getting more emotinal as Gareth enters his senior year of high school. I had to fight back tears when I took him to get his learner's permit. I also got emotional when I read one of his college application essays.

I ussually cover it up by fussing at him.

I definitely get emotional when my kids are hurt or sick and I cant do anything about it. I also dont like it when I have to be tough. Sometimes I just want to give in to the pouty faces.
