    Ok, I have always been a Tomboy kinda girl. I NEVER cried. EVER. However, since my daughter was born I find myself crying at weird things. Not tearing up, not getting choked up, flat out bawling.


    Example: I was watching the "Land before Time" with my DD the other night. It comes to the part where the little dinosaurs mom is dying...I start BAWLING. I mean flat out crying. What gives? Anyone else do this after having a baby? My daughter is a year and a half now...?

    Sweetie, my boys are grown & whenever I see something that reminds me of them as kids, I'm a slobbering mess. Before kids, I was also the hard-as-rocks tomboy. Kids have a way of melting a heart and it doesnt go away just because they grew up. In fact, it gets worse, because they start having their own kids...

    Same here, use to be a big tomboy nothing bothered me, but as soon as I had kids that was all she wrote. I can be driving down the road and start thinking of something with my boys, and start crying. I cried like a baby when my oldest boy's moved out. I have two more to go.

    Quote:Now I can see some things... I can look at my daughter and think of how beautiful and smart she is, and I'll tear up, but THE LAND BEFORE TIME?!?! It's dinosaurs!!! My husband walked in the bedroom and FREAKED. Conversation went something like this:

    Dwayne: "Em?!?! WHATS WRONG?! Everything ok?!"
    Em: "the dinosaur's Mom died...*something intelligble* *sniffle sniffle*"
    Dwayne: "Hun, it's an animated dinosaur....his mom didn't really die....Well, they did hundreds of millions of years ago, but they didn't get upset about it because they were all dead."
    Em: "But...*boo hoo boo hoo"

When I really need to cry, I will watch "The Color Purple". I don't care HOW many times I watch it, I cry like a baby at the end of Nettie comes back with Celie's grown children.

    I'll be sure not to watch it then. I cry when I read books, and watch certain movies.

    I cry. DW thinks I'm a wimp. She only cries if something is REALLY, REALLY funny. Guess it's not a cry, her eyes leak.
