Get emotional or cry since becoming a mom? I get emotional a lot especially over children in real life or TV who are emotionally hurt or abused or killed on TV and such. I ball my eyes out and it genuinely hurts my heart BC I can imagine losing my child and it feels real BC I have lost one. I held my son as he took his last breath almost 6 years ago. I get very paranoid about losing my daughter. I hate having thoughts that something may happen to her and I try not to think that way but I worry. Am I just emotional and paranoid BC I'm a mom in general? Is this normal? I love my baby so much. This is a rambling rant I guess. I'm watching this movie on TV where a little boy died of malaria and it made me think. #Sigh

I'm so sorry for your loss. :(



Totally normal. I never lost a child (had m/cs but not the same) and I'm still paranoid. I think every good parent is (if you aren't at least a little worried I think there's something wrong with you). As long as you're not excessive about it, it's totally normal.

I'm very sorry for your loss. It's totally normal and I can relate. My oldest daughter almost died and with her condition something could happen at any moment to her. I am very paranoid when it comes to her. Also, I am definitely overly emotional at times. I can't help it I love my kids more than anything.

I just think who thinks about something happening to her like I just worry about small things or what if this or what if that. Then I just feel super worrisome. Idk I guess it's normal. Being a parent is the most rewarding and sweet experience but very stressful and scary. Ugh

I get paranoid over Lily being hurt and such, it's normal to me... but she was almost kidnapped as a child so I am VERY protective of her in general.



But I think most kids have that little paranoia when it comes to their kids.
