A Meme

A Modern Mother tagged me for this Meme / memo awhile ago and I just didn't know what to write about. So for my meme to myself I am going to reflect on this song It Wont Be Like This For Long by Darius Rucker. I heard it on the radio Wednesday afternoon. It made me cry just thinking about Kaitlynn and how things may seem tough at the moment. A stage she is in my be terrible, but it won't last forever. Someday I will look back and laugh at the stage or yearn to be back at that stage. She is just growing so fast.

Lyrics to It Won't Be Like This For Long :

He didnt have to wake up
He'd been up all nite
Lay'n there in bed listen'n
To his new born baby cry
He makes a pot of coffee
He splashes water on his face
His wife gives him a kiss and says
It gonna be OK

It wont be like this for long
One day soon we'll look back laugh'n
At the week we brought her home
This phase is gonna fly by
So baby just hold on
It wont be like this for long

Four years later bout four thirty
She's crawling in there bed
And when he drops her off at preschool
She's clinging to his leg
The teacher peels her off of him
He says what can I do
She says now dont you worry
This will only last a week or two

It wont be like this for long
One day soon we'll drop her off
And she wont even know your gone
This phase is gonna fly by
If you can just hold on
It wont be like this for long
One day soon she'll be a teenager
And at times you'll think she hates him
Then he'll walk her down the isle
And he'll raise her vale
But right now she up and cry'n
And the truth is that he dont mind
As he kisses her good night
And she says her prayers
He lays down there beside her
Till her eyes are finally closed
And just watch'n her it breaks his heart
Cause he already knows

It wont be like this for long
One day soon that little girl is gonna be
All grown up and gone
Yeah this phase is gonna fly by
He's try'n to hold on
It wont be like this for long
It wont be like this for long


So basically this is a memo to myself to remember to enjoy Kaitlynn. Live in the moment with her. Don't take her or any of this for granted.
I am not tagging anyone on this meme. I am just asking that you remember to enjoy your children. Don't take them for granted.

Well done! I was half joking of course, but this is a really good reminder for anyone!
