Note to self

Dear Self,

The following are NOT good reasons to cry, even when pregnant:

1. Luke and Lorelai getting together on Gilmore Girls. You've seen that episode FOUR times.
2. The Chipotle girl putting the guacamole ON my burrito bowl instead of on the side. It's not that big a deal. Really.
3. The lawn guys starting outside at 7:30. In the morning. You know, when it's early. In the morning. Early.
4. Really, really cute puppies.
5. Getting five different friends' voicemail. In a row.
6. Chipping my new pedicure.
7. That cute little boy on SYTYCD.
8. Celebrity gossip of any kind.
9. Warm Crystal Light.
10. Cub Scouts.

Wait, no. It's okay if the Cub Scouts make you cry, Self.

Hey, I'm not pregnant and Luke and Lorelai getting together still makes me cry too. So, I think that one should be on your "ok" list of things to cry about. Right along side cub scouts.

I'd cry at several of them too, and I'm not pregnant. Let it all out, girl!!

Shellie said...

warm crystal light breaks my heart! bleh!

InkMom said...

Um, chipping a brand new pedicure is a great reason to cry. Don't beat yourself up. Who needs any reason at all when you're pregnant?

Josi said...

Seriously, if cub scouts doesn't make you cry (or scream) you're doing it wrong.

Becca said...

Cub scouts makes me cry, too, and I don't even do it. Or have one.

LisAway said...

Those all sound like perfectly valid reasons for a good cry to me.

Hormonal insanity. It's all the rage. Particularly here in blogland, apparently!!

Alisa said...

I have a similar list, seriously similar, but it's because I'm bipolar not pregnant. I recently told myself if I cry at another cheesy sitcom or romantic comedy I'm going to have myself committed. There's too much crying going on over here lately.
And I agree though, I don't care how many times you've seen it, when Luke and Lorelai get together you should be crying. That one is totally justified.

My brand new vacuum just went on the fritz and I'm fighting back tears...

Annette Lyon said...

And then there are those pregnancy moments when half of your brain looks at yourself sobbing and thinks, "Interesting. Why exactly am I crying again?"

Kristina P. said...

Hey, I cried when I read that Lindsay Lohan broke up with her girlfriend, and I wasn't even pregnant. It happens.

Jami said...

When you are pregnant they are all great reasons for crying. Homefront ads, Hallmark commercials, birth videos, someone eating the last of the ice cream without saving me any. Sob, sob, sob, sniffle. I'd say I'm glad I never have to go through that again, but menopause is looming.

Emily said...

Amen to that last one. :)

How about driving to the gym and finding it closed? Or opening the sugar bowl and finding it empty? Or making dinner for your mom and then she cancels? Or planning a playgroup and no one comes? Or reading a magazine article about people getting married? Or listening to that silly song "and even though we ain't got money, I'm so in love with you honey"?

Why on earth does pregnancy make you cry??

charrette said...

Hahaha. And yeah, cub scouts can totally make you cry.

And I meant to tell you yesterday (as if I didn't say enough yesterday already) that I went to the chiropractor once a week when I was pregnant with my third and it totally saved my back, even during labor.

You go, girl!

That Girl said...

Check ... check ... check.

What about reading Where the Wild Things Are? Is that okay?

Debbie said...

I seem to cry more and more the older I get. Maybe I'm not a heartless old bat after all?

April said...

I cried over SYTYCD too gf! You are not alone!

Becky said...

Gotta love those pregnancy hormones! And seriously, if you don't at least tear up over Luke and Lorelai, you're dead inside. True story.

Kazzy said...

Hey, I totally agree on the cub scout one is completely allowed and expected.

Terresa said...

Ouch, chipping the pedicure. I'm with you on that one! Great list & congrats on your pregnancy!!

Eowyn said...

It's always okay if cubscouts makes you cry. :)

Pregnancy turns my inner faucet on high instead of on low.

Jessica G. said...

I still cry over really, really cute puppies. And when someone ate the last lemon yogurt without asking me first.

Emma said...

Hey if your pregnant you have the right to cry, and getting your nail polished chipped sucks!
