What's a blubbering mama moment, you ask? It's one of those moments in motherhood that catch you off guard; those sentimental, sweet moments that you love but would rather have in the comfort of your own home so you can feel free to well, blubber.
I often have these at home and that is just fine but I try to avoid them in public because sobbing in public over seemingly nothing isn't my thing.
Here's how it started: the fam took a trip to Target. Daddy and Toph went to look at shirts and I went to look at books. I found a new book by one of my favorite children's authors, Nancy Tillman.
You should read this post now for reference. It's short.
Back? Good, let's continue. The new book by Ms. Tillman is:
I picked this up and started to read. I knew it was going to happen before it happened; the quick breathing, the clearing of the throat, the tears welled up in the eyes. I was physically unable to stop reading though. I was strong for awhile, Ms. Tillman wasn't going to crack me in the middle of Target; until I got to this line:
"So climb any mountain,
climb up to the sky!
My love will find you,
my love can fly."
At that point, I lost it and cried in Target. Through teary eyes I found my way to hubs and Toph and proceeded to tell hubs that if I die an untimely death that that book needs to be read at my memorial. He was quite taken aback but went with it, I think because he really wanted me to quit crying.
Okay, help me out here. Do you ever have blubbering mama moments? They don't have to be humiliating like mine. Share them with me so I know I'm not so totally weird.
