The Best Day

WHOA! Way too long since I posted last. Too much to talk about so I'll just pick one thing.

I have to tell you a cute little story about my 6 year old that happened this morning. I had just finished getting all 3 little ones dressed and ready to go downstairs for breakfast, when Em said "Mommy, wait a second I have a song I want you to hear". This happens so frequently as she is a music junkie! But this morning she had a different insistancy in her voice, so I stopped and said, "OK, Em, hit it"

And on came Taylor Swift, which I hear way too often these days :)

But, she said, "Wait for it mom, your part's coming up" And the words sang and tears just started running down my face. "Mommy, its all right" "Mommy you are crying because you're happy right?" "Mommy, say something".

I was crying my eyes out because I was happy yes, but the lyrics really touched me this morning. And Taylor Swift's lyrics usually are not a tear jerker for me!

The lyrics were from The Best Day and they go,

"I grew up in a pretty house and I had space to run and I had the best days with you

There is a video I found from back when I was three

you set up a paint set in the kitchen and you're talking to me,

its the age of princesses and pirate ships and the seven dwarfs,

daddy's smart and you're the prettiest lady in the whole wide world

Now I know why all the trees change in the Fall

I know you were on my side even when I was wrong

and I love you for giving me your eyes

Staying back and watching me shine and I didn't know if you knw

So I'm taking this chance to say that I had the best day with you today"
I am so thankful for an sensitive little 6 year old that loves her mommy and tells me as often as she thinks it! I was crying not only because of her way of telling me "thank you" but because it also makes me think of my mom and how I need to tell her too!

Hope you have The Best Day! Andrea
