I am a Sensitive Soul

The other night I was home alone, watching tv while I ate dinner. I can't even remember what I was watching, but this commercial came on and . . .well . . . I cried like a little baby. 

 No lie. 

 I was laugh crying at myself for crying in the first place, but it is SOOOO cute to see the complete shock and joy on this kids face! 

 My husband walked in the door right as I was trying to compose myself. I started laughing as soon as I saw him and said, "Okay, come over here. I have to show you this commercial. I've been crying like a baby!" I even showed him where my tears had stained the leather ottoman. 

 He walks over, a little bit concerned, probably assuming it's a commercial about kittens or any member of the animal kingdom --because I tend to get teary at those as well, but it was not that at all.

 


Is that not the sweetest thing you have ever seen? I mean, he's just so happy!

Over a STICKER!




So cute.

  1. Aw, he's so excited! That is a cute commercial. This is the time of year where I always end up crying in my car when I hear that song "Christmas Shoes" on the radio. If you're a crier, DO NOT listen to this song under any circumstances. :)

    2. And definitely don't listen to that song sitting at your desk at work. I did that last year and almost cried my eyes out, but I got a hold of myself. I didn't want people to think I was crazy!

  5. Lol, I know what you mean. I was watching the Today Show while I was eating breakfast the other day and saw a preview that showed people crying because they were so happy about becoming American citizens. I immediately started crying. Immediately.

    But the funny thing was that the logical part of my brain was laughing at myself inside. I was thinking...why the heck am I crying!

    And then later I teared up when a funiture store commercial had 35% for veterans (b/c my husband is a vet and I've been wanting to buy our first real dining room table). LOL!

    Hormones.

  7. First off if you only knew how many times my hubby has walked in on me in similar situations. He picks on me all the time for how easily I cry watching t.v (yes this includes commercials like that one). And if I see anyone else cry or upset it's like an instant "bring on the tears" switch for me!

  9. Just wait...the Hallmark holiday commercials should be in full swing soon. That's where I tend to cry like a baby.

  11. Those hormones! Every time I watch the movie "The 5th Quarter" I cry through almost the whole movie. If you haven't seen it you should - it's SO GOOD!

  13. I teared up at that commercial, too! Then I went "this is a Fathead commercial?!" I was touched and, well, a bit confused. I was crying over a kiddo who was crying over a giant monster truck sticker? :)

  17. This carter's commercial makes me tear up every time I see it. I am blaming it on leftover preggo hormones (baby is 2 mnths). It usually ends with "when a baby is born so is a mom" but this one from youtube doesn't :(

  18. That is so sweet! I used to cry over coffee commercials, and I don't drink coffee. You know the ones where the son comes home from college early and makes coffee to wake his parents up and surprise them? Yeah, brings tears to my eyes every time. I'm pitiful.

  19. When I was pregnant with my oldest daughter, I was watching Cool Runnings on TV. I hadn't seen it in years, and when they pick up the bobsled and carry it across the finish line, I was crying hysterically. When my husband asked why I was crying, all I could say was, "I'm so proud of them!"

  20. So...if you thought THAT made you cry...I recommend this: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CH2gWrUeo7M
    That tears me up every time!!

  21. I watched it and it was sweet but those aren't the kind of commercials that make me cry. To make me cry it's usually a greeting card, a song, or a movie. I guess commercials just don't do it for me.

  22. Kate, it's not that you mention it a lot. I'm just a Nana and my ears perk at the sound of possibilities! What cute babies you would have. This Nana loves your blog. God Bless!

  23. I am the mom of Drake. Fathead sent this to me and I really appreciate you sharing your feelings as you watched it. I cried like a baby reading your reaction. Thanks so much and many blessings to you!

  24. I get it! I so appreciate that this little boy is so genuinely sweet and appreciative. Kudos to his parents - what a great kid! For the record...it made me teary too - he is just so sweet.

    ReplyDelete
  25. That is so sweet, and you are so sweet and Drake is the bomb! What a lovely comercial..... but... I also cried about nearly everything when I was pregnant... just to keep in mind :-)

  26. I agree with the others...take a pregnancy test! LOL!

    ReplyDelete
  27. You need to take a pregnancy test ASAP! Congratulations in advance!!

  28. Just saw it too. Except I didn't really realize it was a commercial. I didn't know WHAT it was. I had on some news channel and thought maybe it was their next story...it captivated my attention. What a reaction! So precious.

    (And so cool that Drake's mom sent you a note!!!)

  42. I used expensive diapers up until 6 months or so, but all of the sudden I started getting regular leaks. I've had very, very few since I switched to honest. I tried expensive ones at the beginning and they were terrible. My daughter is long waisted and on the thin side, so that may account for the discrepancy, but that's my take.
