Free Willy, Flash Mobs, and Hormones

Lately I have been ridiculously weepy. Even with so many recent pregnancies, I seem to forget about that sudden onset of crazy emotions that appear as if out of no where whenever they feel like.

Example #1: The other night I fell asleep for my now usual afternoon nap. However my nap took place later in the afternoon and lasted longer than usual, resulting in me up late that night. I curled up on the couch to watch some random late night tv and hopefully fall back asleep. Free Willy was the only thing on, aside from infomercials. And I found myself sobbing at the end as Willy jumps the rock wall above Jesse while Michael Jackson sings, "Will You Be There". Cheesy much?

Example #2: Today I was sent a video of a flash mob singing Handel's Messiah in a mall food court. Again, I sobbed. The music was beautiful and flash mobs are one thing in this world that is still purely good.

I'm sure there will be more moments like these in my future where I find myself wiping away embarrassing tears while watching McDonald's commercials or see two random children holding hands crossing the street. It's silly, but I have to say I'm grateful. Grateful for the hormones that indicate a healthy baby growing inside of me.

Well I also found myself crying a pretty good cry by the last minute or so of that Handel's Messiah video. And I'm not pregnant. Therefore I'm not crazy and neither are you. :) Glad to hear you're doing well! Will you be in PG over Christmas? We'll get there tonight and be there until the 26th. Call if you come into town.

Isn't it funny the things that make us cry when we are pregnant? My last pregnancy it was the onstar radio commercials. Made me cry every. single. time. HOw silly!
