I Cried

by tinysneakers

I didn’t cry when my 5 day old son had his heel pricked repeatedly.

I didn’t cry when my baby had to get a slew of shots at his 2 month check up.

I didn’t cry the first night my son was up all night screaming and I didn’t know what to do.

But as I sat in the airport parking lot feeding my son before I got on the plane, I cried.

I cried again when I got to the gate.

And again as I sat on the plane waiting for taking off.

It took every ounce of strength I had to not bolt off the plane before they shut the cabin door.


Instead, I cried again as we taxied down the runway.

I’d forgotten every single reason why I thought this would be a good idea…
