Sometimes you just gotta have a good cry.
I think kids are onto something. Don't you ever feel like crying when you're running really late and hit every red light, or your kids can't stop wrestling long enough to get dressed in the morning, or you said something really stupid to a friend and you wish you hadn't? Or your boss is grumpy to you or your mom said you looked like a ferret?
But as adults, we rarely break down and cry, do we?
Now, toddlers, on the other hand ...
I recently saw a blog post by a mother who said we shouldn't post pictures of our crying children. She also said we shouldn't storm into a group setting and talk about how our children have misbehaved throughout the day.
Something about shaming them for their bad behavior.
Well, I agree that we shouldn't announce their bad behavior to anyone who'll listen, but crying isn't bad behavior - it's a typical response when something doesn't go as we want it to (when "we" are 2 years old). And sometimes, it's funny.
If you ever feel like crying, you can empathize with Miss Natalee.
