    It could be a social thing? Ie. Other people see you crying, and are either empathic or help you, or rejoice with you?

    Reminds me of why we have white to our eyes (why isn't it all iris like other animals)...apparently it helps us communicate more effectively or something.

    Crying is a psychological and emotional response to sadness, frustration or other feelings. When we cry we release the hurt in us as it stimulates hormone production to make us feel better.

    Additionally humans are wired to acknowledge tears and we naturally respond to it. As @AdornedWithCats said, it's a learned trait.

    But if our cries are not responded with people or others coming to care then over time those neurons switch off. Then those people don't respond to overt emotion in others.

    Now I'm wondering if other animals suffer from bad eyesight? Could it ever be the case that clumsy dogs just need glasses?
    Animals can get cataracts - and if you have lots of spare cash you can get them removed.

    Why is it, that no matter how frustrating and challenging DS is being, I just have to see his little feet and toes and my heart floods with affection?

    I am close to having 5000 posts. Close in that I need maybe 300-400 more.. My random thought is I wonder how many I would have if I hadn't had a break between joining when I was pregnant with DS1 until I was pregnant with DS2.
