So this morning I've found myself crying over a pair of jeans. Put them on, realised I can't do them up and because they've got an adjustable maternity band tried to undo the button at the side. Couldn't do it and ended up in tears because it means taking them off to undo the button and put them back on again which is way too difficult a task.
Oh my god the scrambled egg pan 😞😢 glad it's just not me. I've cried trying to put a shoe rack back together, every time I put one rail back in, another would pop out. Cue text message to OH for him to do it.
I cried because nowhere in my local town sold Ribeana Light at 7:30am. I had to wait 10 mins for the Waitrose to open and I was stressing about missing the bus for a hospital appointment. I was still blubbing when I had the drink and was sitting on the bus and when I was in the hospital waiting room. It was a really stressful morning.
I lost my shit yesterday trying to get the car seat to work with the isofix base and our pram. Seems you need superhuman strength to use either effectively. My DH was grumpy and bewildered by his sobbing wife but we eventually got it working. Feeling overwhelmed is totally normal x
I cried in M&S on Monday when she told me that, even though it was a massive fucking superstore, they had removed the maternity clothes because it's Christmas. It is ok though, apparently, as I can always order online...
I just cried thinking about my children going back to preschool next week and I'll miss them, and then about how they start school in September and that made me cry even more. Usually I quite enjoy some peace! Obviously hormones!
I cried listening to Merry Christmas everybody by Slade on the radio last week. It was because I remembered the Bob the builder Christmas episode that he was in years ago when my sister was very little and the 'IT'S CHRISTMAS!' bit of the song just tipped me over the edge as she's 16 next year and it feels like just yesterday that she got so excited watching it.
I told DH about it later that day and cried again and when I was at work on Christmas Eve it was playing I tried to explain to my colleagues about why it made me emotional I cried again.
I cried when I was expecting DS1 because I couldn't remember the word for hairbrush. Also every time DH and I visited a baby shop I cried because baby things are so small.
Yip. Perfectly normal. At 29+ weeks with dc3 I've lost count at the silly things I've cried at this. Thought admittedly, I don't remember being quite so emotional with the girls. Boy hormones are definitely worse in my experience.
