Walk It Out

Sometimes, if emotion hits, I think there's something wrong with me.

It's not that I'm an emotionless robot, but I'm not a cryer. Sites like this do not get to me. Nor do puppies, babies or romantic things. It's not that I don't feel things like that. I don't get warm fuzzies unless it's for Weimaraners. I just...okay, I admit it, I'm kind of icy.

This past Sunday my Dad sent me a video text. I didn't watch it right away because, well, Dexter was on. Obviously that was more important, I mean it was the series finale.

But when he sent another message asking if I got the video I figured I should quickly watch it. I started playing it and immediately started getting teary-eyed. I even paused Dexter and re-watched it.

The quality isn't great but I've watched it over and over since then.

And then K made fun of me.

She is my whole life.

And like a parent would do for their kids, I am going to rejoice and celebrate all of her accomplishments. If she thinks a rock is the coolest thing she's ever seen, then we're going to have the biggest collection ever.

I get the whole parental love thing. There are no words for it. It's just something you feel. It's heavy and full and again, there are NO words to describe it. I think you have to be a parent. And although I'm not one, I imagine that this indescribable feeling is what they are talking about. Raven recently said that:
That about sums it up.
T- 31 days....


  1. Awwwwwww baby steps!!! Don't worry about crying girl, there is strength within the act being vulnerable. And kids ... They always seem to find a way to access your heart even if you keep it shut tight. So blame it on them ;)

  2. OMG crying makes me uncomfortable. i think mainly because i'm such an ugly crier that i want to be my lonesome if i do it and like i would just awkwardly pat you on the back if you were crying around me.

  3. She is such a SWEETHEART! Look at her go!
