When you look at your babies....

Sometimes I look at my babies and just want to cry because I love them so much. Am I a total freak? Do you do this too?

I have also found since having my kids that I can't watch anything to do with children hurt or in need without my heart breaking. Like the charity commercials for starving children and whatnot. I look into their little faces on those commercials and see my little ones.... No child should ever have to suffer like that.

Maybe I just need a Midol..but I'm like this ALL the time!

  • You are not alone! Sometimes my DS will just turn and smile or I'll catch him with that little twinkle in his eyes and I get verry emotional. People should be worried if they don't feel like this!

  • I don't feel like that all the time but there are certain moments when my 17mo DS is being soooo sweet, like coming up to me and cuddling for no reason and my eyes start tearing up! At times I feel like I'm doing EVERYTHING wrong when it comes to raising him but the moments he does sweet things like that make me realize everything will be just fine :)
