Crying like a man

Getting the baby into a routine, we’ve been playing music for him during bath time and on the changing table before bed. I’m in charge of the playlists, of course.

He seems to really like when I sing along to Dean Martin or Johnny Cash.

It has thusly occurred to me that while “real men don’t cry” is usually an axiom violently rejected or vehemently espoused, depending upon who you ask, allowances should be made.

    Lyrics from a couple songs spring to mind.

    From Dr. Dre’s The Message:
    “I done been through all emotions, from in shock, to keepin a poker face
    To straight breakin down and showin’ all emotions
    I’m anxious to believe in real G’s don’t cry
    If that’s the truth, then I’m realizin I ain’t no gangsta”

    From Dirt by Cody Jinks:
    “Stay close together
    That’s all we knew to get by
    I recall a helpless feelin’
    First time that I saw my father cry”
