Crazy Mom Syndrome

So I had a 'crazy mom' moment last night while watching, funny enough, Beverly Hills Housewives. Kyle was having an emotional breakdown saying her goodbyes to her college bound daughter. She's ranting about how she doesn't want her to leave and how she has never been away from home before and how the entire dynamic of their household is going to change--and what do I do? I start sobbing with her! My husband, who is sitting on the other end of the couch assumes I'm faking it, so he starts laughing. Able to realize the silliness of it all, I find myself laughing AND crying uncontrollably! I exclaim, "I'm really crying! Can you please come over here and give me a hug!" My husband rushes over to console me. We agreed that that our girls can only go to a college close enough where they can commute from home. We then agreed that it may actually be a possibility that I really am pregnant because the last time I acted this crazy--crying at the drop of a dime--I was pregnant with Lily and super hormonal! I'm not even going to address it until it's a certainty (although it seems to be all I'm thinking about these days).  Obviously, just when I'm back to writing and putting some focus back on myself, I get knocked up.  I'd like to think I can do it all. But experience has taught me that it's next to impossible. Come what may, it'll all work out in the end. It always does.
There is nothing more important to me than my girls, and their happiness.
