It Wouldn't be the Holidays Around Here...

Without a good ugly cry.

My sister got this book for the kiddos. I was reading it to Melese. It is a sweet book. It is about a chameleon who is sad because he doesn't have a color of his own. He is always changing. He is distraught until he meets a chameleon just like him. Then they have each other- forever. I turned to Kate and said, "It's Meazi and Melese's story."



We all had a good cry.

Steven thought it was funny, and managed to take a few photos.

 Steel yourself- here comes the ugliest...

You're welcome.

  2. OH my god. I'm dying here. That is awesome, and extra funny because the look on Melese's face is exactly my son's look when he thinks I'm losing it.

  4. I love your husband. But I really, really, really love the look on your kid's face. "Here she goes again. See what I have to put up with? Don't worry, it won't last too long."

  16. Don't know that I've ever laughed so hard at someone else's ugly cry. Probably knowing that you were laughing with your M&Ms soon after. So funny - thanks for sharing!

  18. OMG, I just laughed so hard I can't take it. Fantastic. I cry in no many books my kids are constantly searching my face to see if I am choking up again.

  19. You've talked about the ugly cry in this blog so often that I'd come to picture it on my own. But then to actually see pictures? Okay, that is hysterical. And you know what's funny? It never occurred to me that two of my friends (who happen to be sisters who will cry at the drop of a hat) do the ugly cry! You finally gave me a way to describe what it is they do! And it is equally hysterical. There's nothing wrong with an ugly cry. I think it's one of the most beautiful, endearing things in the world.

  20. Hilarious!!! I don't think I fully grasped the concept of an ugly cry until this post. Yes, you are awesome and amazing for posting this, and I agree, you are so beautiful, in so many ways.
