I’m a sap. There’s no two ways about it.
Songs, movies, even the right commercial can have me reaching for a kleenex.
It’s not that I become a blubbering idiot, but when something tugs at the old heartstrings my eyes well up and a tear or two will trickle down my face.
I’ve been this way for as long as I can remember but it has gotten worse since having kids.
We’re talking waterworks now.
Barely a day goes by where one or both of my children don’t get me tearing up. This morning it was Evan.
He was up earlier than normal and no one else was awake except us. I decided to sneak a shower real quick before big brother woke up. I put Evan in the bouncer. He was WIDE awake and alert so I chatted with him for a bit. After a few seconds he gave me his biggest smile yet. It didn’t even require exaggerated baby talk! Just me talking and smiling to him… wait.. I mean… WITH HIM.
He was so conscious and present in the moment. I can see in his eyes he knew who I was and he just kept shooting me smile after smile.
Ahhh who am I kidding? I’m crying now telling you the story!!
AAACK! I’m such a sap!
Please tell me I’m not alone. Any good Momma Sap stories to share? I mean I’m tearing up over a smile, it can’t get much worse than that!
P.S. No smile pictures. Camera was no where to be seen. Instead you get another sappy shot from yesterday. That’s Evan sleeping on my chest during an afternoon nap. I looked at him and almost cried then too. lol
UPDATE: He just woke up from nap and shot me a few more! This time I grabbed the camera!
He smiles with his eyes.. I LOVE IT!
