What will make me cry today?

Ugh, I forgot what a kick in the pants post-partum hormones are. I'm so weepy! Poor Jesse keeps coming across me crying and when he asks what's wrong it's always something like "There's a hairball in the shower drain!" or "I forgot to put salt on my corn!" or "Elle stopped using a sippy cup!"

The other day my mom came over to drop off some dinner (because she is the best mom ever and is making dinner for us for every night for a whole week) and I answered the door in tears. She asked what was wrong and the best answer I could give her was "The toilet isn't flushing right!"

I'm a mess.

But I'm not really. Really I'm feeling pretty good. Sometimes I feel so good that that makes me cry. If I start to think too much about the birth I start to get weepy with happiness.

Yesterday I talked on the phone with J and he just went on and on about how much I mean to him and B and how they can never thank me enough for what I've done and how their whole family is so thankful. Finally I had to cut in and say "J, yesterday I cried over a toilet that wouldn't flush right. Do you have any idea what you're doing to me right now?"

I was a big pile of blubbery goo by the time we got off the phone. It was a good kind of blubbery goo. Much better than the pile of goo I was turned into by watching a former porn star/drug addict do ballet. Damn you Celebrity Rehab.

"There's a hairball in the shower drain!"

Wow, you really do have a 'hairy fragina'! ;)

Hugs and love babe, glad you and baby and new parents are healthy and well.

Awww...I guess it's just a matter of time before you get back to feeling "normal." Although, I'm starting to worry about myself, because I sometimes cry at the drop of a hat, and I can't give a totally valid reason like childbirth.

I cry watching celeb rehab too...

I hope those hormones even out soon...I want you to be happy. Happy without the tears...They blur your vision!

And you need to see what a gift you have given.

Stupid bloody hormones. Too bad you can't flush them down your defective toilet. :)

Hope you get attacked by a case of the Happies soon - until then I'm sending giddy vibes your way.

I'm so glad you and the new family are doing so well. And that I'm not the only one getting too involved with Celebrity Rehab.

Just keep chanting "three weeks, it will pass in three weeks."
