The Pursuit of Happiness

Me: Why were you crying after your performance?
Boo: Because I was just so happy.

Oh goodness….I gave her my crying gene.

    I’m a crier too – wonder if my daughter will get it!?
    cute dress – did you make it?

    Love this. I have the gene, too. Have not yet seen it in my kids.

    How sweet! I am not usually a crier but have found myself tearing up at the craziest things lately! I think it is a good thing and have often wondered it I am “defective” because I don’t cry when others around me are….

    Oh, I’m a crier too. Big time. My youngest daughter is the same way.. Happy tears are the best though. It’s just proof your heart is overflowing.

    I have the same gene. It can be so annoying but I like to think it’s because I’m so sensitive. None of my kids got my gene so count yourself lucky!

    Oh bless! That made me tear up! Love your blog, have been reading for ages (from all the way down in Australia) but never commented before. This was just too precious not to say something. I hope my little girl grows up to have as much spunk and personality as it seems your Boo does.
