I got dizzy just reading this. I was the same way with my last boss. HATED myself for it.

I've taken a deep breath and I think I'm finally over it.


Wow. I thought I had just had serious hormonal issues going on 2.5 years after giving birth. I didn't realize this emotional flimsiness was a "thing". A mom thing.

But yeah, dude, I cry for really sickening reasons, like seeing my daughter get super excited by seeing a live presentation of 'Big Comfy Couch'. Or better yet, trying to talk to a director of a preschool and about enrollment and just breaking down. Yeah, so cool.

I am relieved to know I don't have some unusual emotional disorder. I feel my shame lifting.


Awww! Hang in there, CrankyMama! (hugs your way) It definitely is very hard to switch hats between being tender-mommy and mommy-at-work. I personally can't see myself doing it right now. I'm much too much of a mushball - I cry when my son laughs or smiles at anything on tv! How's that for a blubberying mess?


Sounds a bit embarassing...I don't think I cry more than I used to before kids. I'm the sort of person who never cries in public. I never even cried at ET and I was ten.


Hang in there, CrankMama. I had to work for years to develop that cool, cry-proof exterior. Now? GONE! I'll cry at the drop of a hat, but maybe that's also the peri-menopause doing it's thing.

And don't forget, the new Christopher Guest movie opens next weekend! I've already got it on my calendar!


I hear you, girl. Once the epitome of cool impartiality (or something), I have found myself getting a little misty in interviews over the past year.

The nerve of Avery, turning me into some sort of human being...


I never had the tough, cool exterior to lose, so I can't relate.

I know I have always envied people who could be like that though.

It would be a tough thing to lose control of.
