2. Well, that's pretty good...

But, I can cry from watching HIS kids eating string beans. Heck, I get teary just looking at anyone's kids. I've had plenty of moms take their tiny babies away from me, when my tears start dripping on them.

But I'm just a sap.

Seriously, President Obama, that is not your heart breaking. That is your heart growing with love for your daughters. And that love comes through in every picture that I see of you with your girls. You are a lucky man.

3. Oh my God, I SO understand what he's talking about

I'm a big old sap who wears her heart on her sleeve anyway. But I have two baby girls just like our amazing president and my six year old was sitting on the couch watching "Lilo and Stitch" a few days ago and I was looking at her and the tears just started coming up. She looked up at me and was probably thinking "what in hell is wrong with this woman??"

I just love them both so much it is overwhelming sometimes. I understand exactly what the president means.
