Nostalgia and Tears

Okay I am the first to admit that I am very sentimental. I don't even fully understand it sometimes but I can cry so easily over things that most people probably think are ridiculous. A few weeks ago I saw a preview of a new movie coming out. I saw it again tonight and new I had to write about it. When I saw it the first time not even 5 seconds into it something within me burned and said I know what this is! My cousin Theresa was with me and we both got so excited and acted like 5 year old girls giggling over nothing. It was "Where The Wild Things Are".
I read this book as a child growing up and loved it. I remember reading it in school which grade I can't be sure now but I remember it. While all the details are a little foggy I knew it and know I have to see that movie when it comes out. As memories from my childhood flooded my mind tears floated to the surface and I felt again a bit odd. Why is that I cry when I think about things from my childhood? I think I had a pretty good childhood, I think I have a pretty good life now. For some reason the nostalgia seems to bring me to tears. Does this happen to anyone else? Is this odd? I know Jared probably thinks it is very odd and like a woman of me to cry.

If you haven't seen the trailer for this movie yet here you go check it out. It looks like a good family movie!


  1. We are definately going to see that! We got Logan that book for Christmas and he has a little stuffed monster that came with it. We love that book! ps... I cry at the drop of a hat. :)

  2. My theory on the crying over childhood (cuz I've done it, too), is that you just miss it! Yeah, it's great to be an adult. But, don't you just have days where you'd love to be a carefree, responsibility-free kid again? A day to play all day and maybe cry to your momma if you get hurt? :-) At least, that's why I cry. We can never get that innocence back, nor be totally carefree like we were back then.
