The post where I ramble about random things and it's not even a random thoughts post

The lovely new mother of three mothergoosemouse tagged me for a meme and since I'm about to join the mom to three kids club I figured I'd better play along. If you haven't gone by her site and seen the adorable Oliver, you should. He's really cute. Almost as cute as my kids.

Julie did hers with a theme...we'll see if I have anything as coherent as that.

But first, the rules:

1. Link to the person who tagged you.
2. Post the rules on your blog.
3. Write six random things about yourself.
4. Tag six random people at the end of your post by linking to their blogs.
5. Let each person know they have been tagged by leaving a comment on their website.
6. Let your tagger know when your entry is up.

The first thing that comes to mind for me is my emotional state. I've admitted it before, I'm a crybaby. Add pregnancy hormones? Just ask my husband, I'm a time-bomb.

So here's my take on the meme: 6 random things I have cried over lately.

First, I took my kids to Target a few weeks ago. Let's just say it wasn't a pleasant trip. It ended with me sitting in the parking lot with my kids in the backseat crying hysterically because I'd not only had my kids acting like complete brats, but I lost my brand-new-$200-to-replace-cell phone. Now that was a fun trip. As my daughter told me tonight "sometimes you cry when you're mad mom." Ya think?

My kids have each said things over these last weeks that have struck me as funny. Now I can't remember what these things were exactly but let's face it, 3-year-olds and 5-year-olds are not known for their hilarious comedy routines. Nonetheless, I found their statements mighty funny. To the point of tears rolling down my face. And my helpful husband will help me to continue to laugh like that until I'm fairly certain that I'm going to drop a baby out of my body. Alas, that hasn't happened, but I've felt like it.

I bought the song "You're Gonna Miss This" from iTunes. It's Trace Adkins' song. If you're a mom and you've heard it, you'll know why I cried.

Similarly, the moms of the kids in our cherub choir will be singing with our kids this Sunday. It's a terribly sappy song about love being a special thing. Yeah, good luck with that one Heather. Ah, at least I'll be able to cry in front of a whole bunch of people. That ought to make it better.

Reading Rachel's blog and thinking about her little girl, who was so close in age to my little girl.

This afternoon, my son sang a happy mother's day song with his preschool class. He was supposed to do sign language and sign "I love you" but he couldn't quite get his fingers to work the way he wanted them to so he was doing the "peace" sign with both hands. He reminded me a little of tricky Dick, which made me laugh. Then I thought it was so sweet that I started to cry. Gotta love the mood swings.

I'm too lazy to do the tagging part. If you want to do it, go for it and let me know!

Ha! I am finding nasty tissue shrapnel in all my laundry from all the wadded tissues in my pockets from the weepy last weeks of pregnancy...shhh, I know, a wee bit behind on laundry am I.

I did loose my cell phone... well actually, the kids dropped it in the sink, and it's lifeless.

Wow Heather... can't believe how close this is!!

You are totally welcome to come to the beach! I've been there with a newborn myself- it would be refreshing for it to be someone else's baby I could just hand back to them (ha ha- every mother's curse!)

I am a total crybaby, too - and I basically sobbed my way through all three pregnancies.

You do cry a lot...but I find it very endearing!
