Lame, and Then Some

Well, tonight was parent teacher conference, and the WORST possible thing happened.

I got so riled up at one of the teachers, and the discussion got so heated...I cried.

How lame am I?


I hate that about myself so much. I am NOT sad, or upset, but just REALLY emotional, and the tears just come, and I can't stop it.

I never would have cut it in the courtroom! Good thing I like the law library.


Oh well.

I know that you stood up for whatever was happening. You are a Mother who Knows. Even in you cried I am sure you got your point across. Your kids are lucky to have you. Wish i could say the same for mine.

What was the problem?

And which kid was it?

I hate that I cry when I'm mad. It's my body's way of responding to that much anger. And I feel like it makes me look weak or that the other person can't see how truly angry I am because I'm crying instead of yelling or beating them senseless.

I'm sure it will all blow over. Better to speak your mind than walk away thinking what you should have said. Even if you got emotional in the process.

At least that's what I tell myself.

I hate when I do that--trying to be all cool and pro whatever and then I bust out in the ugly cry. Why???

Brianna said...

I do the same thing, and I hate it too. Sometimes, the tears just come. Now I will count myself in good company when it happens to me.

Hope your night got better.

Oh, I've so had those moments. And you just can't stop it...ugh, humiliating!!! I'm feeling for ya...and wondering what's going on!

I was going to leave some words of wisdom, but Amy pretty much nailed it on the head.

I feel your pain!

Sorry for the bad PT conference. Sounds like we all cry and hate it. I'm sure in it came across just fine. You are a woman, and this is part of being a woman. (the part that we seem to hate.)

Want me to smack some heads for you. No one would ever suspect a pregnant women, and if they did well then I can blame it all on hormones.

Hilary said...

Oh man, I HATE it when that happens!!!! What, you're not gonna share what it was about?
Inquiring minds want to know (so we can know how to handle it when it happens to our kid).

I agree with Amy that it was better to speak your mind and try to take care of things...emotions and all. I always kick myself afterwards at all the things that I should've said instead of just complacently nodding my head the whole time. Good for you!
