You’ve got a friend in me..sniff sniff

My kids LOVE Toy Story, especially Logan. I think that one of the three Toy Story movies play in this house probably at least four or five times a week.

I love the movies too. I was a teenager when the first one came out but I shamelessly watched it over and over. It’s cute. It’s funny. What’s not to like?

I was skeptical when the second one came out since you never really know with sequels, sometimes they suck. Toy Story 2 was great too. Even as I was pushing 20 and in college, I fell in love with the new characters and laughed out loud.

Then came Toy Story 3. The bane of my existence. OK, not really but I seriously can not stand that movie. It’s a great movie, really it is, but I can’t make it through without sobbing. Toy Story 3 gives me the ugly cry…You know the one, snot covered, face contorted…UGLY. I must be losing my damn mind. Or maybe I’ve lost it. This isn’t just a little tear, I’m talking about full on sobbing…at a cartoon. What the hell is wrong with me?

I could be in a different room, but if I hear Andy giving his toys away to that little girl I’m instantly a blubbering mess. Good lord, I have tears welling up just thinking about it. It’s not even just that part either, it’s the whole damn movie. Every time I get myself calmed down and under control I start right back up again.

Toy Story 3 is the only movie that gets me like that. I’m known for getting a little choked up at the end of a good movie but with Toy Story 3 I’m a hot mess from the opening credits right through to the end.

I’m thinking it’s the whole mother thing. At least that’s what I’m telling myself so I can sleep at night. I’d like to think I wouldn’t be crying at an animated movie if I didn’t have the boys and the mother’s perspective.

Please tell me I’m not alone. PLEASE tell me I’m not the only mental case who cries uncontrollably through almost the entire movie! Should I commit myself to the nearest institution for help?

I was 8 years old when the first Toy Story movie came out. I have to admit being a fan of old disney films like Alice in Wonderland, 101 dalamations, and Beauty and the Beast at that age, I did not like the Pixar look of the movie. It took me a long time to appreciate the movie Toy Story. I think Toy Story is the best among the 3. All 3 are good films, but it was the latest one that made me cry buckets the first few times I saw it.

Oh my word....seriously, just found your blog and this was your first post I saw!!!! We have Toy Story 2 in our laptop at all times, the twins watch it breakfast, noon, and supper....over and over and over!! They LOVE it!! I tried to change it to another movie Finding Nemo, they went crazy {mind you they are only 16 mths old} so I had to put Woody back in!!! Matt and I was reciting the movie the other night when we went to bed....funny how children change your life, I would have never recited a movie more less almost all of it!! And talk about SAD....it is terribly sad, I hate when Andy shelves Woody for his broken arm and doesn't take his to Cowboy Camp....heart breaking!!!

Nope. Me too. I'm like that with a lot of movies, books, and even commercials, though. I've always done it, not just since the kids. You're not alone. :). That may not make you feel better, but there it is.

I get choked up with other movies and even commercials, but Toy Story 3 does crazy things to me. Thanks!
