Wanna see me cry?
Play/sing the national anthem. Works every time.**
Wanna see me do the ugly,snot flying, snorting, puffy eyes, mascara running cry?
Play/sing the national anthem while my little boy is on the field of a major league baseball game.
Pure ugly, I cannot lie.
Parker got to go on the Reds field with his t-ball team for the national anthem and we got to watch. Oh, do I have high hopes of him being in the bigs someday. Our kids are so lucky nowadays, they get to go to MLB games AND go on the field. I swear I would have given up all my Barbies to do that when I was his age, well maybe not all of them. I am so glad we get to give our kids the kind of experiences some might never get. I guess we're pretty lucky too.
**songs that induce tears regularly: the wedding march, the graduation song Pomp and Circumstance, "I was brought to my senses" by Sting, "You are my sunshine" only when sung to a newborn, the songs Zoe dances to each year for ballet, oh who am I kidding, I am a sap!
