On a personal note, I hope I grow out of this phase of crying every time my children are involved in anything. Today I was contemplating whether I was a depressed person because I cry or feel like crying about so many things daily, from discussing religion to watching the kids play at the playground to seeing a TV show. But then I realized that I cry at gobs of happy events, so that's not depression. Right? I am getting tired of always being on the brink though, or the too common occurrence of actually spilling tears. It's exhausting and frustrating.
